Before Christmas, all year 5 children took part in an Explore Learning maths investigation at The Milford Academy. Two members of the Explore Learning mathematicians team came in to school to deliver sessions. From these sessions, four children were selected by the visitors who had impressed them with their investigative and problem-solving skills.
Children spent the day with children from secondary schools and tackled more maths problem solving questions. Their tasks involved building pyramids using matches and boxes.
The children loved their afternoon and were keen to tell the cohort all about their challenges!
