Today the students had numeracy play, our focus was on multiplication and fractions.
It was great to see all the students engaged, leading their own learning, extending themselves and working together.
Play provides an important ‘context for learning’ where children are able to explore ideas, solve problems, make connections and engage with others. We have been focusing this term on multiplication and fractions and the provocations set up allowed the students to build on their essential life skills. The children are exposed to literacy and numeracy learning through hands-on, practical and play-based experiences, they are more likely to engage meaningfully and successfully with them.
