Mr Jackson from Simonside Primary School has been working with some of our Year 6 children to help them become “Maths Teachers”. The children then supported some Year 2 children using a variety of visual representations to support their learning.
Last week the Year 2 children involved in the Maths Programme had to demonstrate their newly acquired skills to the rest of the Year 2 children, with support from our Year 6 “Maths Teachers”.
All children have thoroughly enjoyed this experience as it has deepened their knowledge and understanding with number, place value and calculations. Children have developed positive attitudes to Maths through their enjoyment of participating in the programme.
