Inspirational Maths Week

Helping the children to start the year with a positive attitude towards the learnings of Maths, every class in the school will be engaging in a week of ‘Inspirational Maths’. The aim of Inspirational Maths Week is to make all children believe that they can ‘do maths’, it is just a matter of challenging yourself, working through your mistakes and working hard.

Lessons begin with a short video which explain how our brains grow every time: you are challenged, you make a mistake or you do something that you have not experienced before. Children then begin a daily problem which has been developed to enhance the reasoning and problem solving skills which are the key ingredients in being an able mathematician. All the problems are ‘Low Threshold, High Ceiling’ which all children can complete the task successfully, with different levels of challenge built into the task.
