Year 6 Maths Transition Activities

28 Apr 2024

During the Year 6 Maths Transition Day activities held on Sunday, 28th April 2024, students engaged in problem-solving stations designed to foster their mathematical reasoning skills. These stations were facilitated in small groups, allowing for collaborative learning and peer-to-peer teaching.

At each station, students were presented with word problems that required them to apply various mathematical concepts such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, and percentages. The problems were open-ended and often involved real-life situations to make the learning experience more relatable and engaging. These types of problems not only helped students practice essential math skills but also encouraged them to think critically and creatively to find solutions. Moreover, these problem-solving stations provided opportunities for students to learn from one another. As groups worked together to solve the problems, they could share strategies and ideas, fostering a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts. Additionally, teachers circulated around the respective stations to provide guidance and support as needed.

Students enjoyed the Transition activity and are looking forward to the next one.
