This term, Mr McTernan has been working with two groups at Birchfield for our Sport Numeracy programme. The sessions look at combining maths, physical and social skills to provide an active learning environment within the school hall.
Check our gallery for pictures from session eight.
In the photos, the Year 6 group are earning a question card by scoring in the basketball hoop. A question card has a decimal on it and each team’s job is to turn the decimal into a fraction. Finally, a good mathematician looks to simplify their answer and this extra effort was rewarded with extra points! The Year 5 group used our number balls to create column subtractions that they had to answer as a team.
