This month in PE the children have been linking math to their PE lessons!
Children have been playing Pirates Treasure. The aim of the game is for each team to collect as much treasure as they can within a set time, then they go back to their team and count how many pieces they have. The team with the most points wins that round and we start to introduce different values to different pieces of treasure, leaving children to problem solve by planning which pieces are worth more and to add the total value of their treasure to give themselves a grand score.
We also use the balancing skills learnt from our last game to find interesting and creative ways to place the treasure back to its place after each round.
