Yesterday and today we have been enjoying taking part in the World Education Games. So many children have been inspired to logon to Mathletics and Spellodrome to challenge themselves and their international friends to a game to see who can calculate or spell the answers in the least time. Whilst only mildly competitive, it has been so lovely to see how the children’s mental maths skills and excitement for maths and literacy have progressed and developed throughout the week and I have no doubt that this level of enthusiasm will continue throughout the year. Moreover, many of our children blogged about their experiences yesterday and you can find them here : clover.westwoodblogs.org. They would LOVE a comment, if you have time, please.
For the duration of the games this week I have run a lunchtime club for children to take part, logon and have fun. Consistently over the three days I have had over 30 children joining me, giving up their lunchtime to be a part of it. At nearly a third of the school this has been so encouraging and a joy to coordinate. Well done everyone and thank you for your efforts.
Here we all are in action, with some audio from the children, describing what they have achieved:
