In keeping with our pledge to concentrate on core academic subjects, the teaching of practical mathematics has been given a real boost this term at Rose Hill Westonbirt School. Activities, including the regional Maths Challenge and a workshop with Explore Learning (who provide private learning centres located in Sainsbury's grocery stores across the UK) allowed pupils to develop problem solving and practical skills in real-life situations. Explore Learning held two interactive workshops for Years 3-4 and Years 5-6 and described our pupils as the most well-behaved and focused group they had visited!


In addition to the challenge and workshops, pupils were also put to the test with Rose Hill Westonbirts very own Maths Challenge morning where children were tasked with a specific brief to design and build a robot which met rigid criteria, including to be free-standing, to have a specific purpose, to be exactly 57cm tall, to include a variety of angles and a circle with a specific diameter. Congratulations to the winning team who built a wonderful Robot Waiter with built-in storage facilities! The morning was rounded off by an exciting maths trail around the grounds of Westonbirt School and a Brain Stretchers activity.


OPEN MORNING AT ROSE HILL WESTONBIRT PREPARATORY SCHOOL - Thursday, 9th February 2012: 09:30am 12:30pm. For further information please contact our Registrar on 01666 881375.
