Maths was very much a hot topic recently as Crosfields celebrated its annual Maths Week. From Sport to Science to Cookery, pupils were encouraged to think about the application of Mathematics in everything that they did. Younger children were counting steps and identifying shapes around the school, while the older children applied their maths knowledge to their language lessons, as well as designing computers.
Year 2 children applied their number and counting skills for a cookery session and were baking shortbread, while all Year Groups got to put their skills to the test with a series of practical games at the Brain Blaster Workshops, courtesy of the Happy Puzzle Company who came in to visit the children. "I enjoyed working as a team to solve the Maths puzzles", said Freya.
The Middle School used their knowledge of shapes, space and measure by using 2D Design, a computer aided design programme to design mobile phones, while the Senior School were learning about the different components of a computer and building BitBot robots.
"The Maths Relay in the Theatre was fun, it was fun working under pressure solving tricky problems with no obvious methods to apply!" exclaimed Sakhi, Year 7. "Great fun and interesting to do Maths in French" said Thomas, Year 8.
