Year 1 Thai Temple Maths Fair - 11.06.10.
On Friday morning, the whole of the year group set up a Temple Maths Fair where the children were able to show off all the maths work they had been doing over the past week. The children had been learning how to play lots of different kinds of maths games - to do with a wide range of mathematical skills. Number, weight, mass, capacity, co-ordinates, time, money and many more variations! They then devised their own games which they had to make, write rules about, draw advertising posters for and organise for others to play.
The morning was a great success. Everyone was able to play many different games that had been invented by other children in the year group, spending their money as they went. The event was linked with the Buddhism topic we have been following and was also a fund raiser for the Baan Dada Children's Orphanage, which Year 1 are supporting this year.
We had many parents with us, who had braved the warm conditions to come and support their children and their friends. Thank you very much for coming.
By the end of the Fair, we had managed to raise the wonderful sum of over 7,700 Baht - a fantastic end to a very enjoyable experience for the children.
