Celebrating Multiplication the Fun Way!
Over the last four weeks, the whole of the school from Year 1 to Year 6 has been having a bit of a push on learning our times tables. Always handy to know them and once learned can be easily recalled.
At the end of the four weeks, all the classes came together for a big celebration - The Times Tables Challenge! This was going to be a culminating event that involved every student in every class.
Teachers were asked to nominate eight students from their class who had demonstrated enthusiasm to learn, and mastery of, their times tables. These eight students were to be given a special job - they would participate in the obstacle course part of the event.
So here's what happened.....
Each class assembled in the main hall, lined up in classes. The first eight in each line were the specially selected students for the obstacle course.
Finally, a winner was found!
The winning class of the Times Tables Challenge 2012 was 6MH!
...and they received the magnificent perpetual trophy!
Lots of fun.
Lots of chaos.
Lots of noise.
Three kids evacuated to somewhere quieter.
A memorable moment in the learning of multiplication facts.
And we're all looking forward to next year...
