I often like to get give you an insight into the activities I complete within my mathematics sessions. This week we were exploring the aims of the National Curriculum by experiencing an activity that involved creating a life size model of the Big Friendly Giant (BFG) from a replica of his hand. The activity involved a lot of measuring, cooperation and problem solving. I, of course, captured everything with my camera and new selfie stick! You can see the finished products on the Wilson Waffling Facebook Page – don’t forget to give it a ‘like’. Just so you know, some groups deviated from the BFG but still made something fantastic!
After a stressful weekend with the leveling up software, it was a great to sit back and enjoy waffling live. This week I talk about progression within my own teaching and provide some advice about completing placements. Also, I had some great questions asked – including “Can science and religion live along side each other?” want to know the answer? It’s all in this weeks show – run titles!
After talking about the difference between working in primary education and higher education last week, my thoughts this week has turned to something which I have been thinking about for a long time – so long that I’m not sure whether I have already written a waffle about it. If I already have then I apologise because I feel the need for speed…I meant o waffle about it again. So split into your ability groups, grab your resources and lets waffle about differentiation.
