Pupils have the opportunity to attend a number of maths masterclasses. Children were immersed in fun-filled maths activities which they thoroughly enjoyed. Opportunities for problem-solving, reasoning and communicating mathematically were woven throughout the competition.
Young Mathematicians Award
Our mathematicians take part in a yearly competition hosted by Explore Learning. Children had the unique opportunity to work as part of a team to tackle never seen before mathematical problems.
Times Tables Rock Stars
At St Michael at Bowes, we have introduced a fantastic online way to develop knowledge of times tables and division facts for all pupils from Y3 – Y6. Times tables facts are essential to accessing many mathematical concepts and knowledge of these facts will be assessed at the end of Y4, from September 2019, by a National test. Times Table Rock Stars, also known as TT Rock Stars, is a fun and challenging programme designed to help pupils master the times tables!
SMAB took part in interschool competition against 7 other schools and achieved 2nd place! A year 3 class achieved top place and a year 5 child achieved the highest score against thousands of other children.
Our club helps show our children that maths is a playful and diverse subject full of surprises.
As well as supporting children in creating links between mathematical concepts, it promotes collaborative learning between year groups.
