6th Class play Maths Games with the Juniors

On Friday 18th, 6th class invited the juniors to their classroom. The idea was to play maths games with them. They were very well behaved and seemed to enjoy the games. We played the colour game, joining the dots game, matching games, odd-one out game and the weighing game. We really enjoyed working with the younger pupils and we hope to bring them back to our class again later on in the year.
