'More able' Maths Day...

On Wednesday 9th July we had a day of Maths along with 3 other schools:
Redbridge Primary
South Park
Ray Lodge

Mr Pete Hall who is a teacher with 35 years experience (Headteacher for 5 years) led the problem solving day with 33 children.

The day was filled with a variety of fun mathematical puzzles which gave the children the opportunity to apply what they know to solve problems.

There was lots of talk, team work and success. A Fantastic Maths Day!

 The children took part in a video conference with 3 other Redbridge schools. 
A group of Year 4 Children also had a question and answer session with Dan.
