On Monday as an introduction to our new maths topic Mrs. Sinnott created a QR maths trail around the school! We formed groups of four, named our teams and armed ourselves with an iPad and QR scanner and off we went. So that we didn't just follow each other one team was allowed to leave the classroom after every minute had passed, a bit like a handicap race! We read our first question and there were three possible answers, the correct answer lead us to our next clue, so we had to be careful that we didn't get 'lead up the garden path' so to speak! There were twelve questions in all, and despite being the last team to leave the room.....team Skittles returned with the quickest time after having answered and recorded all of the answers in their maths journals.
As today was our first day, to get to know Mrs. Sinnott a little better she designed a QR Trail for us. We formed groups of 4/5 and armed with an iPad and an answer sheet we had to locate the ten QR codes that were placed randomly around the room. When we scanned the QRcode (Quick Response) we were presented with a question about Mrs. Sinnott and three possible answers. Groups had to work co-operatively to pick answers to each question before moving on to the next QR code. Our groups worked well together for our first group activitiy of the year and are looking forward to more activities like this in the future. In the mean time all students are working on questions for their own QR Trail, so stay tuned for further posts about these.
