Maths Week England

Maths Week England

On the 11th-16 November 2019, Churchfields Junior School took part in the brand new Maths Week England. 

 

The week was created with the intention of raising the profile of maths and giving children of all backgrounds the opportunity to enjoy mathematical experiences. Schools across the country were involved and at CJS pupils were able to enjoy maths in a variety of ways.

 

On the Wednesday, a whole school maths puzzle club took place, where children across the year groups could come and enjoy solving problems, investigations and mathematical puzzles. It was great to see so many pupils working collaboratively and demonstrating brilliant determination to find the answer.

 

Pupils in Year 5 and 6 took part in a live webinar, led by the University of Cambridge, to take part in the largest maths lesson ever taught. With over 180,000 pupils across the country involved, it was a great experience, where pupils were challenged with a range of maths problems. 

 

Finally, throughout the week, pupils have been taking part in a nationwide battle of the bands on Timetable Rockstars. Head-to-head with other classes, pupils had the opportunity to battle other schools to find out who is the best band in the country.

To help your child develop their confidence in mathematics, make sure you encourage them to log on to Time Tables Rockstars (TTRS) throughout the week. The website is an excellent way of ensuring pupils become fluent in their timetables. For those who want to become more confident in number facts, log on to Numbots, using the same log in they do for TTRS.
