LOtC in Maths
The outside spaces both within Kings Hill and in the surrounding community are used to help children understand and apply mathematical contexts. Where possible children collect data to use in their work. This may be bug hunting, plant identification or traffic surveys. Pupil’s excitement about applying maths to real life situations is wonderful to see. Their enthusiasm to take their learning outside and into real situations allows them to secure concepts far more than inside a classroom. Using the outside spaces as a resource to help children learn in real contexts allows them to transfer skills they will need in later life.
I loved trying to run as fast as Usain Bolt. We timed each other 5 times and then tracked our own improvements on a graph.
