Year 5/7 partnership morning

The project is designed to share resources with local primary school teachers and to develop links with local schools.


- Year 5 students to work in a team with Year 7 and Year 10 girls on a range of challenging mathematical activities

- To develop a love and passion for mathematics and have the oppurtunity to work on activities outside the curriculum.

- To give Year 5 students experience of being in a secondary school

- To share resources with local primary school teachers and to develop links with local schools

Head of Mathematics of BHS wished to promote the school to local primary schools in order to attract pupils who might not have normally thought about the school as a potential secondary school. To develop a community based event that raises the profile of Mathematics.

Students engaged and enjoying working on various mathematical activities in a team. 

Year 5 students and local primary school teachers will be the immediate beneficiaries.
