Year 8 have fun with Maths

Leave a comment

It seems Year 8 maths lessons are not always completely taken up with calculations and equations!

Last week the group were honing their spatial and strategic skills through two fascinating and addictive games. Blokkus,  past winner of Mensa and teachers’ awards, not only helps children develop strategy skills but also increases their knowledge of how mathematical shapes fit together.  Mensa Connect is another strategy game that involves planning and spatial awareness skills.
