The answer is only the beginning!

Key Stage 2 children have been enjoying a week of Maths activities designed to encourage Maths learning and to grow their brains. This has involved taking risks, getting things wrong, finding out why, making predictions and testing them and realising that the answer is only the beginning.

Memorable moments have included Yr 3/4  investigating how to make all the numbers from 1 to 20 using four 4s with the 4 operations, square roots and factorials (referred to as Bang!), and
Yr 5/6 investigating addition of consecutive numbers to the nth term for 3 hours and and still wanting more.

The most important point though is that there has been enthusiasm and an eagerness to learn from mistakes.
