Maths Carousel Workshop

Maths Carousel Workshop

On Thursday 3rd November and Friday 4th November, the Problem-Solving Company came in to school and delivered the Maths Carousel workshop to students in KS3. Students spent hours in the Hall hard at work as they tried to crack various maths puzzles. It was great to see them so focused as they made their way through 32 large puzzle challenges. The activities, of varying difficulty allowed students to experience the problem-solving process; investigate, question, reason and even make mistakes! It was an excellent team building event, where students were under time pressure to solve all the puzzles and complete the challenge before their classmates.  Pupils appreciated being out of the classroom, unleashing their competitive side and had a fantastic time thinking outside the box. At Hathershaw we encourage creativity and appreciate that every child learns differently. We aim to provide our students with opportunities to grow and develop outside the classroom.
