As part of our whole-school numeracy initiatives, every boy completes a numeracy task each week within their form group. Boys have ten minutes to complete ten questions, before answers are shared. This gives pupils the opportunity to practice key skills, remember important rules and check their understanding of mathematical processes, interleaving several topics at once.
Within each form there is a ‘Numeracy Champion’, who assists other boys in their group if they need a helping hand with any questions. This role gives boys a position of leadership and responsibility within their form, which is rewarded with an enamel badge for them to wear with pride.
Below is a sample task which boys in Year 8 would complete in form time. How many questions are you able to complete? Answers are provided at the bottom of the page.
