Estimating challenge

 

We love looking for maths all around us, especially during walks and exercise or out of our windows.

 

Can you…

Go on a walk to the local park and estimate how many daisys or dandelions you think there are? What area of ground do you think they cover?

Pattern challenge

 

We love looking for patterns all around us. It's amazing how many patterns we can spot around the house or just outside. 

 

Look at the patterns inside these objects, can you describe the patterns?

 Now perhaps you could go outside and collect some objects. perhaps leaves, pebbles or twigs. Make your own pattern in a circle or a spiral using the items. 

 

Can you draw or photograph the pattern you have made? Don't forget to share your photos or drawings!

Our Local Area

Drawing a map is a good way to consider scale and the shape of buildings and streets

from a bird’s eye view.

 

Can you make a map of your street or local area?

Can you write directions for a route around your map? You could then follow your map on your daily walk.

 

We can’t wait to see your maps!

 

Here is an example, but you can add even more detail, such as street names or points of interest, if you wish!
