This term, Year 6 have spent time in the classroom building on the knowledge of co-ordinates they gained in Year 5.  In one of their Maths lessons this week, they donned their welly-boots and took their learning outside, as they transferred their skills to real-life problem solving.

They spoke about the practical applications of using a pair of numbers to define an exact location using two axes and how this might be important in the ‘real world’.

Working in small groups, the pupils were tasked with finding different locations around the School Farm based on their co-ordinates, stand in place and check their accuracy with their teachers. The children also practised calculating the co-ordinates of different structures around the grounds (even including sleeping animals!).

What a great way to teach Maths in a fun and memorable way, using a unique resource.
