SJS Pupils Enjoy Maths Week
Stamford Junior School pupils have once again enjoyed a successful Maths Week, with this year’s theme, “Grow with Maths.” The children took part in a range of problem solving activities from growing Garlic and solving a young gardener’s planting problem in Y1, to looking at Pascal’s triangle and making tetrahedrons in Y6.
The “wow” factor was much in evidence in the Friday assembly, when pupils learnt that Y4’s calculations were based on Sarah Outen’s latest adventure, including how many mars bars she needed! The pupils also wrote poetry, baked and decorated cookies, developed vivid growing shapes and amazing flowers in art classes, while Reception were extremely proud of their doubling skills.
Y1 were astounded by the all the Maths involved on a farm and found that the amount of bread a family eats in a year weighs the same as five Year Ones.
Junior School Teacher, Alison Crow, said: “All the pupils thoroughly enjoyed the week and there was a buzz around the School throughout.”
