Fibonacci Day, 3rd May

The Maths team are excited to celebrate our next whole school numeracy day on Wednesday 3rd May. We've chosen to celebrate Fibonacci Day as it is a very important sequence where the next number is the two previous ones added together. The sequence starts: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34... We chose 3rd May (3/5) because 3 and 5 are consecutive numbers in the sequence.

On Wednesday, every lesson should have a brief numeracy starter which is relevant to the subject you are in. It may be based on number sequences or it may be based on putting events in order or finding and using a pattern. During period 5, you will have a special quiz - the winning group in each year will receive a prize.
