Collaborative Maths Problem Solving

Following success as regional Tameside winners of the National Young Mathematicians Award, the children had a visit last week from Explore Learning, hosts of the competition.

Children from Reception up to Year 6 were given the opportunity to problem-solve collaboratively, using their knowledge of Maths, and applying it to real situations. Workshops included Planets, Fruit Basket, Sign Makers and Lunch Break.

Having a ‘real-life’ problem engaged the children and helped them to understand the relevance of their Maths lessons to the wider world. In a similar way to the children's lessons at Brabyns, they were encouraged to ask questions and ‘have a go.’  

At the end of each session, some children were awarded with ‘fearless learner’ certificates, to reward them for their positive and resilient attitude to learning.

You can see some pictures from the Explore Learning Maths Workshop in our photo gallery.
