Organised by the SMPS Maths Department, Maths Recess Play takes place over two weeks (Tuesday to Thursday) in Terms 1, 2 and 3. The PTA assists with the coordination of the many parent volunteers that are required to run the four game stations over six days each term.
The girls enjoy playing the challenging logic games that help to build critical thinking skills. Games that the girls have played include IQ Logic, Rush Hour, Book Towers, Balance Beans, Matchstick Puzzle, Two Dots and Tipper Crate.
The games are played at two levels: an easier Level 1 and a harder Level 2. The girls receive a stamp on their reward cards for each game completed. Each stamp earns points for their class and the class with the highest points wins.
