William Byrd Primary Academy

Year 1 Active Maths Lesson

As a school we are always looking for ways we can increase and embed creative opportunities for learning.  Our Year 1 children enjoyed an Active Maths Lesson which involved a combination of Maths and physical activity.  The children had 15 Maths questions which were placed outside in the playground in various places.  Children had to find all 15 cards and work out the answers before returning to the classroom.  

The children were fully engaged and the lesson was a huge success and was an enjoyable alternative to classroom based learning.  We hope to have many more Active Maths Lessons in the future across the school.
