Video Strategy Series Number 5: Forest School

At Lisburne we feel it is important to share our knowledge with parents and carers and those wishing to understand more about the way we educate and communicate with the children of Lisburne School. Over the last few months we have been releasing a series of videos looking specifically at the teaching tools we use to develop, enhance and enrich our pupils’ education. Please find below the fifth video in this series: Forest School

Maths Week 2019

This year our Maths Week was entitled “The Lisburne Flower Show” where we enjoyed a green-fingered approach to active learning and having lots of fun. 
 
We used a wide range of mathematical skills through gardening activities such as, estimating and counting seeds, measuring the amount of soil needed to fill different containers, and creating repeated patterns using flowers/pebbles. 
 
The whole school was split into four teams – daisies, sunflowers, poppies and daffodils.  Each day, the children earned reward points for their excellent effort and engagement in maths activities. The reward points were totalled at the end of Maths Week to reveal the daffodils as the winners! 
 
Throughout the week, each class worked as a team to design and create a special themed miniature maths garden.  The gardens were absolutely fantastic!  We were visited by a panel of gardening experts who very kindly judged the competition and announced the winning class garden.  The winner was Apple 2! 
 
Well done to everyone for their hard work and creativity during Maths Week 2019!
