Mr McTernan’s Sports Numeracy

This week brought up the final active learning week of Mr McTernan’s Sports Numeracy at Kildwick School. Mr McTernan has been working for the last 9 weeks on developing maths confidence and incorporating physical activity into the maths lessons to help the children grow.

Working with a Year 2 and Year 4/5 class, this week the children worked on mental subtraction and bus stop division respectively.

The lesson is designed on two prongs: The first being the physical challenge, how are we going to challenge the children physically and hopefully in a way which those kinaesthetic learners will develop? The second prong of the lesson, the mental challenge, the maths that they are learning and inevitably the results on the post test paper.

Mr McTernan has been extremely impressed with the attitude to learning from the children and has noted the vast difference in confidence from week 1 – week 9.

Next week is the final week is the final week – Post Test Paper. We know they have got it in the bag! Good luck to everyone at Kildwick who is part of the Sports Numeracy groups and well done for all your hard work over the last 10 weeks!
