Raising attainment for boys at Hillside Primary School
Transcript of Raising attainment for boys at Hillside Primary School
Real life maths diary
Launched in ACE this year to engage boys in maths-
'Maths-no problem' bear (Ernie) taken home and able to complete maths problems over the course of the week before bringing in the following week to feedback to the rest of the class. Activities completed have included counting up the Fifa scores and completing graphs, counting orders for parent's work (lorry drivers etc) or shopping and has proved to be a really effective way of applying maths outside of the classroom.
Sumdog's free educational games motivate learners to practise maths- while you have full control over what they learn.
Students love playing Sumdog's multiplayer games against others worldwide - while their teachers keep control over the skills they work on.
As students play, the computer asks them questions, selected from hundreds of fine-grained skills, tailored to their individual needs.
Use of real life scenarios to inspire and later share writing- either through display in the school, class blogs or creating films using iMovie/ green screens.
Children to become creators and see an end result in their writing- a real purpose, beyond being kept in a book that only the teacher will see.
Alan Peate's sentence type rubric used to teach grammar objectives in a purposeful way.
