For the NSPCC number day, Year 2 and 3 were split into squirrel teams and given 30 acorns. We divided our acorns equally between each squirrel and then went out onto the field to find somewhere to hide them. We were then allowed to hunt for each teams acorns and see if we could steal them for our own winter food supply (we could keep our own acorns if they hadn’t already been found). We sat down and counted all our acorns and the squirrel team with the most acorns won!
We used many different maths skills today including counting, adding and dividing. It was also an excellent way for us to consolidate what we have been learning about animal seed dispersal in Science.
