NUMBER DAY FOR THE NSPCC
Why do we need to know about maths?
You need maths for lots of different reasons. We are surrounded by maths and numbers all the time, from:
Science, money, passwords & usernames, games - online & boardgames, phone numbers, maths games, card games, registration plates, birthday cards, telling the time, clocks and timelines, chefs need it for cooking when weighing and measuring, architects and engineers.
We have been doing lots of work around the number 100 today, snakes and ladders, shooting baskets, how many star jumps, running relays, using all operations.
It was lots of fun.
Also we have been reading about the importance of today and VE Day.
