This afternoon, Lansbury Lawrence Maths Leaders discussed ideas and projects we could launch ourselves into for the new year. With already Maths Week and the start of Maths Masterclasses at Langdon Park, children were eager to plan for future events and activities.

Some of our Maths Leaders will be taking part in ‘The Wondermaths Challenge’ next year, which supports and enhances the primary maths curriculum. It focuses on:

  • Mathematical reasoning, solving increasingly sophisticated
    problems, using shape, number and pattern problems.
  • Mental maths – focussing on developing quick recall of
    number bonds – using the very popular 24® Game.
  • Statistics and measurement, within problem based collaborative
    codebreaking tasks.

Our Maths Leaders think it’s a great idea to share these problem solving activities with all children and plan on setting up maths clubs at play and lunch time.

Another exciting idea is to set up a Number Hunt in our Early Years to encourage our youngest children to be curious about number and maths in their environment. As well as trips, visits to other schools, more competitions and parent workshops we are feel this year is a going to be another wonderful year of maths learning and experiences!
