Ages: 7-11

Pi, written using the Greek letter ‘π’, is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. The number (approximately 3.14159) continues without any repetition or patterns!

There are a number of ways of helping children to learn about Pi, and we have some free resources available for download below:

  • Use the Pi Poster as a teaching tool or for display in your classroom.
  • Print the banners and put them on display.
  • Use the resources as part of Pi Day (March 14th each year).
  • Ask children to decorate the Pi templates. They could be decorated by adding the correct digits inside!
  • Challenge children to memorise Pi to as many decimal places as they can.
  • Ask children to draw circles and work out the value of Pi, comparing the circumference and diameters of their circles.
  • Can your pupils make a poster / song / video to teach others about Pi?
  • Find out about other special numbers (e.g. square numbers, prime numbers, the Fibonacci sequence).
