Primary Magazine Issue 21

Up2d8 maths

In this issue of Up2d8, we look at recent news of the problems terrapins are causing in our countryside. People who buy them as pets, notably at the time when the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles were a craze in the 1980s and 90s, either get bored with them or they grow too big and so owners release them into the wild. Conservationists are concerned because they are growing in number and causing havoc among wildlife by eating ducks, ducks eggs, fish etc. and also by carrying salmonella.

The spreads provide a great opportunity to explore such mathematical concepts as counting, place value, money, measurement and data handling. The resource provides ideas that you can adapt to fit your classroom and your learners as appropriate.

As always, we would be extremely grateful if you could give us some feedback on how you have used Up2d8, if it has worked well and how it can be improved. You might be interested to read Paul’s comments on how he has used it in his school: thanks Paul!
