Pi Day: a celebration of the magic number: π!17th March 2023
On Tuesday, the whole school celebrated Pi Day and got to grips with the one and only true magic number: π .
In their Maths lessons the children focused on circles and the never-ending digits in the number Pi, enjoying a range of activities across the year groups:
- Nursery pupils created circular artwork.
- Reception the pupils coloured some pictures made from circles, and also used cubes to measure the diameter of some circles and playdough to measure the circumference.
- Year 1 read a Pi story and made their very own Pi hats!
- Year 2 and 3 used the digits in Pi to create their own Pi necklace, using different coloured beads to represent each digit.
- Year 4 used their artistic skills to build a Pi skyline, with each ‘building’ representing a different digit.
- In Year 5, the pupils followed the digits of Pi to construct a Pi dreamcatcher!
The pupils also had lots of mathematical fun outside of the classroom, from circular shaped breaktime snacks to Pi jokes and puzzles to try around the school.
