Prep 1 enjoyed an exciting outdoor maths trail just before the half term holiday. This adventure was stimulated by their maths studies based around measuring.
Our boys love being outside and it seems only fitting to use our local environment to enhance their studies and curriculum understanding. The boys used a range of measuring equipment including iPads to identify the length of the various items around the Prep School grounds.
The boys worked with a partner to support one another’s skills and develop co-operation. They quickly appreciated how much easier accurate measuring is achieved when a friend is available to hold the tape or record results.
It was lovely to observe the enthusiasm for this active learning and good to hear from their teachers that the boys were able to take the skills they have learned back to the classroom.
