Maths and Photography project gets underway with teachers’ INSET session

On Thursday 16th January our partnership project with Windmill cluster schools got underway at Loughborough Primary School, with an INSET session for year 4 teachers, in Loughborough’s brand new community room. This project, delivered by photography workshop leaders and volunteers from Fotosynthesis and community arts organisation Creative Sparkworks, will support children in maths concepts of shape and measurement using hands on learning and visual cues. On Thursday, teachers had a go at making 3-D shapes which the children will make and then put together to build a large structure, experimenting with planes and angles. They also went on a ‘treasure hunt’ to find some shapes and dimensions of objects around the school. These and other activities will be part of the children’s workshops starting next month. More to follow! We are grateful to the Ernest Cook Trust for funding this project.
