St Anthony of Padua Primary School is pleased to announce that we are participating in an exciting new pilot project in Liverpool to promote Mathematics in our city.
The aims of the project are:
We will, therefore, be holding events throughout this school year to help everyone to have fun and improve their mathematics skills.
The dates of events will be on our website so please come along and help us to achieve these aims!
As part of the Liverpool Counts Quality Mark initiative we will be holding a Maths Party Day in school on Friday 17th June 2016. The idea behind this is to give parents and children more ideas about using Maths in everyday contexts.
There are posters displayed in school advertising this event and further details will be given out nearer the time.
Numeracy for life
The National Numeracy Challenge online is an interactive site that helps adults learn the maths needed for everyday life. Click on the link below to find out more details
Every fortnight, the children will have the opportunity to complete a mathematics challenge or puzzle. These challenges are displayed on the Mathematics Ambassadors board in the main corridor in school and there is a wallet for completed puzzles. The activities will also be on the newsletter so families can participate. Correct entries will be drawn in assembly every other Friday and 2 lucky pupils will win a prize.
A useful maths Fact of the Fortnight for the children to learn is also displayed on the board.

National Pi Day 16th March 2016
Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.
Year 6 completed investigations of circles and then were rewarded for their hard work by having a apple pie feast!
Thank you to all our parents and children in supporting Number Day and raising £164.00 for the NSPCC. We had a lot of fun "Dressing Up for Digit day " and taking part in exciting maths activities.
Thank you to all the familes who participated in our maths cafes. We all had a great time playing maths games and did a lot of hard maths thinking!
