Maths in Pictures!

Over the last few months Mrs Howard has been encouraging all classes to base their maths learning on a picture book, which has resulted in some amazing learning!  Mrs Howard was involved in a project with eight other schools across West London to see how using picture books in Maths could enhance children's learning and understanding of mathematical concepts.  Children and teachers at Talavera have proved that not only can using books enable children to participate in lots of different styles of learning such as practical measuring opportunities and marching like ants to help understand arrays, it is also great fun and makes the learning more memorable!  The project culminated in Mrs Howard sharing all the learning with approximately 40 teachers from across London at a presentation at the end of May, photos of which are shown here.IMG 4169 1
