Our school is part of an exciting project which is funded by the British Council.
There are 5 schools involved from across Europe. The project lasts for two years from September 2017 to July 2019.
Participating schools are based in:
The focus of the project is to improve pupils attainment and engagement with mathematics whilst at the same time finding out about different countries and European cultures. The children will be involved in a range of tasks and activities throughout the project.
All the children across the 5 schools gave one word to explain what maths means to them.
We asked the children to say one word about what they think about when we talk about the other countries.
Our first activity was to share a traditional recipe from each country. We would also set a selection of mathematical questions linked to our receipe – such as quantities used, how much more for twice as many people etc. the children loved making each others recipes.
