The children in Purple Class have been counting down since before last half-term and today we celebrated our 100th Maths Meeting of the year. This is a part of their school day the children really look forward to and participate enthusiastically. The purpose of these short sessions is to consolidate key areas of Maths and introduce new topics daily. We start each meeting with a song or a chant (some Abba chorus too!) and talk about some calendar facts. Lately we started introducing money and you might have noticed your child looking more carefully at the coins in your purse. They can describe most coins so far and are starting to understand the value of each. We will be looking at different ways to make a 100 using the manipulatives we have available in class during Maths Meeting this week.
