Stockbridge Counts whole school home learning

Stockbridge Counts

Mathematics: its impact on the world, past, present and future home learning

Learning Intention – I am learning to investigate how maths is used in the world around me, how it has helped people in the past and present and what maths has been invented.

All pupils from Primary 1 to 7 have been set a home learning task to investigate the impact maths has on the world.

Primary 1 & 2 Maths in the world challenge homework sheet

Primary 3/4 & 4 Maths in the world challenge homework sheet

Primary 4, 5, 6 & 7 Maths in the world challenge homework sheet

We are looking forward to seeing the results on Monday 14th November. Look out for updates on the website showcasing some of the learning from the challenge home learning task.

If you have any questions about the home learning task, please talk to your child’s class teacher.

Stockbridge Counts

We are launching Stockbridge Counts this year with the aim of increasing mathematical mental agility across the school.

Rationale for Mental Agility

‘The ability to calculate in your head is an important part of mathematics. It is also an essential part of coping with society’s demands and managing everyday events.’

~ City of Edinburgh Council Mental Agility Guidelines 2014

sc-rainbow-pictureStockbridge Counts

  • Stockbridge Counts will focus on daily 10 to 15 minute mental agility at the start of every maths lesson.
  • The whole school will focus on each aspect at the same time.
