Maths Partnership Day
Lambrook School hosted a Year Four Maths Challenge. Schools from the local area sent teams of their most talented Mathematicians to join us for a day of challenges.
The challenges included; ‘Make 24’, ‘Dicey Dicey’, ‘Card Pairs’, ‘Tangrams’ and ‘Dominoes Jigsaw’. The tasks were tough but really good fun. The children enjoyed working together to solve the problems appeared to enjoy the competitive aspect of Mathematics.
Lambrook has established a rolling programme of Educational Partnership days, aiming to share our resources and specialist teachers with our local schools. We feel that there is great benefit in children and staff coming together to investigate new topics, share ideas and to collectively engage with academic topics.
The ISSP initiative sees Lambrook engage with local schools twice a term offering a different academic focus each time. Lambrook has established a new programme with a focus on partnership; encouraging collaboration between all schools involved.
A large number of School resources have been used including IT, classrooms and our Performing Arts Centre. Beyond this, a significant number of staff were fortunate enough to be involved in the day, all keen to share their resources and expertise.
The day involved 76 children from 18 different schools. We hope that we have helped to further stimulate curiosity around Geography, as well as offering wider independent learning and investigative skills, which the children can then apply to other areas of their education.
The children were aged between 8 years and 10 years. There was a balance of genders and a broad mix of academic ability.
The Maths Day Partnership Day runs once a year in the spring.
