On Friday 11th February, Callerton Academy welcomed Newcastle University’s Maths PGCE group to run small group activities with our students. The 14 trainee teachers set up seven different activities that caused lots of excitement and learning. These were lilypad leaping, higher or lower, maths ping-pong, building castles, hot air and sandbags, beanbag shooting and timetable chanting. These activities were hugely enjoyable and stretched the mathematical thinking of our students in a variety of areas including number, geometry and probability. Student participation in the sessions was exceptional and they made a fantastic impression on our visitors. Well done Year 7!
