Visit from White Rose Maths Hub, May 2017
Mrs Smith from the White Rose Hub visited us on Wednesday 25th May 2017 to model maths mastery lessons in Y5 and Y1. The staff and children got a lot from the sessions and we are now working on using some of these strategies to help build on our maths mastery curriculum.
Maths Week 2016
Ashlands Primary school have celebrated another successful and fun maths week. The theme of the week was ‘The Art of Maths’ where Maths skills were taught and applied through many other subjects. Basic skills were practiced throughout the week and problems solved. The new resources, recently purchased by the school to encourage the children to use their logic and reasoning skills, were enjoyed by all the children across school. Upper Key stage 2 enjoyed a visit from the 7puzzle company. Throughout the week children baked, investigated, played puzzles and games, used the local woods and looked at pattern in shape, art, poetry and music. The children used the outdoor environment to complete trials, make art work and measure. Older children made different themed maths games for the younger children to play and enjoyed a session teaching them how to play it.
