Year 5 Maths Challenge

We were delighted to welcome the Year 5 pupils from both Birtley East and Portobello to our Academy on Thursday morning to work with 15 Mathematics PGCE students from Newcastle University.

The Year 5 pupils, with the help of the PGCE students, worked together on problem solving tasks involving area and perimeter, demonstrating their excellent reasoning skills throughout and developing their resilience whilst working through each stage of the problem.

Overall the whole morning was a wonderful success and everyone involved thoroughly enjoyed their experience at the Academy.
