Buddy Maths

On Friday 25 July, we had Buddy Maths.  The whole school is involved in this for Term 3.  Our class is buddied up with half of Room 8 who are new entrants or Year 1s.

We did an activity called 'The Mathematical Side of My Body'.  We used string and metre rulers to test some ideas.  One of the ideas to test was whether or not we are 'square' - this means that when your arms are spread out the distance from fingertips to fingertips is the same as your height.

We had heaps of fun.  It was fabulous to see 5 year olds working alongside us.

  1. Hi, I'm David from Taupaki school. I like how your school is doing buddy maths instead of buddy reading. I also like seeing bigger kids working with smaller kids and see them learning together.
