Last week it was Maths Week. We were learning all about how people use maths everyday in their work and jobs. Sammy came to visit us. She is a doctor and she told use how she used maths everyday when calculating temperature, heart rate and how much medicine someone needs. We practised being doctors and using different skills to do these things.
Then we thought about shops and businesses and how they use maths everyday. We went shopping for new pets and investigated different combinations of coins to make the same amount. We then set up our own businesses where we were making shapes. We could buy equipment from Mr Spink’s to make as many shapes as we could to see to miss Savage to try to make money. We needed to think about money, measuring and shapes when we were doing this.
