Maths at Work - How do you use Maths?

 

The ambassadors are busy at the moment interviewing members of our school community about the role Maths plays in their everyday jobs (photographs to follow).

We believe that maths is a skill for life and allows us to interact withe the world around us. We would like to hear some of your examples of how you've used maths at home and in work.

Young Enterprise

Young Enterprise 1

This week,  Years 4, 5 & 6 took part in a full day Young Enterprise Global Workshop.

The children completed a series of hands-on tasks designed around the theme of global trade which provided an opportunity for pupils to apply skills for learning, life and work.

They used a world map and a long distance meal activity to appreciate that the countries of the world export goods and services in order to fulfil other countries’ needs and wants. A fun and fast-paced trading game introduced the complexities of global trade between countries at different levels of economic development. The pupils then worked in mixed age group teams to invent a product to export to a fantasy country. They created a marketing plan and presented their ideas at a product launch in front of the class of journalists.

Maths Breakfast Mornings
Parents and carers have been invited into school this week to take part in the launch of our 'Maths Breakfast' mornings and play maths games/activities and solve problems with their child(ren) and class teacher while enjoying a cup of tea/coffee and a bacon sandwich. Take a look at our photographs below...

Liverpool Counts Quality Mark

Liverpool Counts Quality Mark 1

Norman Pannell Primary is delighted to be accepted onto the next cohort of schools in Liverpool, undertaking an exciting project called the Liverpool Counts Quality Mark.

The aim of the project is to promote and develop the philosophy of ‘Numeracy For Life’ which is all about developing positive attitudes to Maths and recognising that Maths is all around us. It is an essential life skill that we all need.

 

The aims of the project are:​

  •  to raise the profile of Numeracy / Mathematics
  • to change the culture of thinking around Mathematics
  • to make real life connections
  • to understand how Numeracy / Mathematics can affect life choices
  • to make connections with other subjects
  • to share and celebrate the enjoyment of Numeracy / Mathematics

 

We will, therefore, be holding events throughout this school year to help everyone to have fun and improve their mathematics skills.

 

We will be looking at opportunities to show pupils that numeracy skills can be used consistently every day and in lots of real life situations. We will be showing that Maths is fun and having a ‘can do’ attitude helps us to always try our best and never give up.

We want everyone in our school community to be involved, with everyone sharing how they have used Maths in their everyday lives.

How have you used Maths today?

If you have used Maths at home or in the real world, please share your pictures with us – we would love to see them.

If you have any ideas on how you can help us promote ‘Maths in the Real World’, for example coming in to talk to groups of children about how you use Maths in the workplace or within a hobby, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Mrs. McMaster.

 

The dates of events will be on our website so please come along and help us to achieve these aims!
