Mrs Fletcher and Mrs Finch spent a couple of days in Wolverhampton, visiting St Martin's Primary in Bilston, where they toured lessons and observed teaching and also attended a maths conference. St Martin's Year 6 school performance data is amazing, with lots of high achievers. They use the same maths learning system that we do at our schools (Maths Makes Sense). Mrs Finch wanted to find out the secrets to their phenomenal success!
The following day, the two of them attended an inaugral conference for Maths Makes Sense, where Mrs Fletcher gave a presentation on school improvement to the audience.
In the afternoon Year 6s from St Martin's visited and taught all the adults how to calculate with fractions and algebra.
