 Maths is Marvellous at Finchale

Welcome to our page that is all about maths at Finchale Primary School.  Below, you will find examples of websites and guides to support your child's learning at home. In addition to this, there are some 'How to ...' videos (Maths4Kids). In these videos, a school aged pupil demonstrates how to carry out various maths concepts and they are very good. There is also information to help with TTRockstars and Numbots. I hope you find the page useful.

If you do have any queries about mathematics, please do speak to your child's class teacher.  They will be able to offer advice or they will speak to one of the maths co-ordinators.

NSPCC Number Day 2022

This year, for NSPCC Number Day, all of our pupils had the opportunity to come dressed in anything to do with the numbers. We were just amazed by the fantastic outfits that we saw.  During the day, everyone took part in different mathematics challenge and learned about the important work the NSPCC do.  The message of, 'Speak out. Stay safe.' was shared. In class, we looked at what pupils could do to help keep themselves, and others, safe and what they could do if they felt unsafe.

NSPCC Number Day Year 6

In Year 6, we started off the day by watching the virtual assembly by the NSPCC.  This showed us how to speak out so we could keep safe. We considered who we have around us to keep us safe and who we could talk to. In mathematics, we carried out different activities including 'The Mystery of the Olympic Ringer' which involved carrying out different maths challenges. We also took part in the NSPCC/TTRockstars challenge and finished a very respectable 707 out of out of 60242 classes who took part (total class score).
