Celebrating Numeracy Week with Footy Maths

Footy Fever is in the air. The finals for Aussie Rules Football are only a week away so to add to the fun of Numeracy Week we dressed in our favourite footy team colours and celebrated Footy Day.

We practiced our footy skills and our maths skills. For each Goal scored you earn 6 points and for a behind you score 1 point. We used a pair of dice and challenged someone from an opposing team. We played 4 quarters and calculated our scores. It was a great way to revise our 6 times tables. DSCN3283

After we had played one another we then scored on a ladder for each team. It was a fun maths lesson!DSCN3285 DSCN3279

  3. That football day seems really cool and exciting. How about you come and visit our blog, it is http://www.ribbledriveprimary.net. I really like the way you put a picture then a chunk of writing,that made it much easier to read. I wonder who is the best at football, and how long did your class play for?
