Maths Department

I can’t believe I am writing more Newsletter items as it is the end of another half term; where has the time gone. We must have been having lots of fun in the Mathematics department.

The students have been working with data this term and understanding bar charts, line graphs and pictograms. Whilst this is being taught, we have also focused on the language that comes up frequently in not only everyday life, but the Functional Skills qualifications as well. We have found that using this regularly gives the students the maximum amount of preparation for when they may take any form of Functional Skill assessment.

Students have also been playing a lot of memory games to help with long-term memory retention; another skill that is not only crucial for their learning at school but also for their futures. They are certainly getting a lot quicker at matching the pairs!
