February 2022 - Subject Revolution 

 

On Friday 4th February we had a Maths focus day, this was part of the NSPCC Number day.  We were so lucky have Subject Revolution(https://www.subjectrevolution.co.uk)   in school to help us celebrate all things MATHEMATICAL!  They provided us with an exciting, modern, interactive and hands-on educational Mathematics experience for us all. 

 

In KS2 we had a day full of mathematical reasoning and problem solving that required us to work in teams and pass through each maths challenge zone, undetected by the invading Robotrons.  We had to find the codes that would bring down the Robotron's secret server room and save us all!

Year 3 have been inspired by their first book, The Great Kapok Tree. We made masks and turned into the animals in the book trying to persuade the sleeping man not to cut down the tree. We enjoyed our walk past Mr Hodgson’s office to make him think his school was overrun with rainforest animals!
