Locomaths November 2018
Just spent the morning trying to work out how to bottle enthusiasm because Whale Hill and Acklam Whin pupils seem to have it in abundance! Wow they have hit the ground running as the latest groups of pupils to take on the Locomaths Challenge. Based on the real life challenge of creating anew railway route through a country the children have to work out costings, test alternative routes, evaluate impact, both social and environmental and present it all to the group (and this web page) by 2pm. I have no worries that they will succeed magnificently.
As usual, events here are based around team working skills, applying existing knowledge and working out creative solutions to problems. Three of our teams today are even mixed schools so the pupils really have to develop their ability to mix and work effectively with other children they have never met.
And here are the presentations:
