Maths Week 8th – 12th November 2021

At the beginning of November, we celebrated Maths’ Week England. The teachers all shared extra Maths activities with their classes. Some classes enjoyed solving mathematical puzzles to help Numberella in their Virtual Escape Room adventure whilst others participated in live workshops with different mathematicians. Here is one of the clever Maths tricks we tried:

  • Think of a number.
  • Double it.
  • Add 10.
  • Halve it.
  • Take away you original number.
  • Is your answer 5?

We also participated in England Rocks along with thousands of other schools. Our school came 3150th out of 3,942 primary schools taking part. A special well done goes to Admiral Moore (Y4), Jack Roth (Y4) and Mary Phoenix (Y5) who were our top three scorers. Keep it up Westfield! In assembly, we learnt that Maths is all around us and it can be creative. I will leave you with these pictures to have a look at and discuss with someone “where is the Maths in that?”
