Teaching Ideas for a Science Day! Sam Collins Bring science to life by holding a Science Day in your classroom! Our post has plenty of cross-curricular ideas to try with your children.
I think it is important to put the emphasis on children using displays as a visual tool to help them learn. You can set up a numeracy work board like this on a fairly small scale and still have a really useful learning zone.
Idea paint can be painted straight onto the wall and gives a wipe clean surface just like expensive whiteboards. Amazon do some self-adhesive, wipe clean Magic Whiteboard stickers that look very good. Limit Your Colours Limit the number of colors you use in this area.
It is tempting to make everything bright and colorful but that can be distracting. Sticky putty will hold up any light items but sticky pads or small velcro squares work better for heavier things. You can also put up trimmed plastic wallets mounted on colored card to easily slide in work or pictures.
Of course what you choose to use depends on the age of your class. A puzzle challenge area for quick activities. You can get as creative as you like with this area. Change the challenges frequently, get children setting the challenges.
Definitions they have found for themselves, either from the internet or from a book, are much more memorable than anything we tell them.
A working area that focuses on one area of maths that you are currently exploring — this is where children can stick up work they are pleased with, questions they are interested in, things they want to find out.

One way of doing this would be to divide the area into 3 sections using paper tape. This sort of self-directed working is really useful for all learners but especially for independent learning times.
Take lots of photos of the class doing things that involve maths. Throw in some wild cards and see if they can work out how something like driving the car or tidying the room might involve maths.
Make a display of the sorted and labeled photos. You can use bright colored post-it notes to label the groups of photos, that way it is easy to take them down and re-sort them in a different grouping. Most activities will involve more than one kind of maths.
Everyday maths is also part of putting up displays. From measuring the spaces between letters and working out proportions and ratios, to getting the angles for placing things right. It is best to avoid too much visual clutter in a learning area so just choose a couple of these ideas at a time.
There is lots of evidence that involving children in making choices about their learning environment improves their engagement so get them involved at every stage. Children use class ipad to link to file or game! Last week we were fractions so the link was to fraction games. I also use speech bubbles which the kids can write in to explain their work.A set of lovely postcard writing templates, great for English lessons on informal writing styles and for supporting independent writing activities on a variety of different topics.
