Continuing our topic of place value, 6CC have been learning about negative numbers in maths this week. Following an initial lesson learning how to cross zero and find the difference between a positive and negative number, our crew needed some further support to bring them fully up to speed on the strategies we used so what did we do? We hired 10 voluntary maths specialists who were willing to consolidate their own learning by mentoring their peers. After supporting their ‘student’ through the basics, the student-teachers introduced their pupils to negative numbers but in reasoning and problem solving contexts. Sterling jobs, guys!
