These are not the children you are looking for…

7th November 2016

Year 3 and 4 had a lucky escape thanks to the Jedi like skills of their teachers.

The travelling theatre group visited as part of our work in maths. We believe in concentrating on the Root Skills of our maths syllabus – from place value to addition. We then like to put those skills we’ve learnt into practice with practical activities. So the actors were tasked with helping our children learn new concepts and reinforce those that they have already learned.

Now we’re not saying that this is the best way to teach…But it’s impressive how quickly children can recall number bonds to 10 when there’s a Stormtrooper breathing down their neck!
