100 children and staff join our joint cluster Royal Institution Maths Master classes

We were delighted to be part of 2 Royal Institution Maths master classes over the last 2 weeks where 22 schools from BLC, Windmill and Oval Learning, including 100 staff and children from year 5 and 6, tackled A level and higher education mathematics looking at Pascal’s triangle. A big thank you to Alison Eves at the Royal Institution for leading these sessions on Googlemeet. Children learnt how the patterns and maths of Pascal’s triangle had real life use now as experts use the principle of binomial numbers in their estimates of Covid 19 numbers. Well done to all the children who took part for their great contributions. We hope to run more of these sessions next term.
