Year 6 ADMAT Maths Challenge Day with Dan Simons

Maths Challenge Day at St Stephens Community Academy On Friday 21st April 4 schools from the Andaras Academy Trust: Windmill Hill, North Petherwin, Werrington and St Stephens, joined together to participate in an amazing Maths Challenge Day at St.Stephens Community Academy. Daniel Simons, from the Cornwall and Devon Maths Hub, enthused the pupils in their learning of maths through a range of games and challenges. The challenges included making an origami Jackson Cube, calculating the code to open the treasure chest and trying to find out the sequence required to perform a maths card trick. " It was a great day- learning maths and spending time with children from the other schools' ' 'Today was the most fantastic maths we have done ' Class 6 pupils ( St.Stephens Community Academy).
Throughout the day all the pupils were faced with being stuck in their learning pit but with demonstrating resilience and reciprocity ( two of our learning powers) problems were solved and maths learning was clear. A truly AMAZING day.
