Reading Girls' School

Primary Maths Event

Mr Delaney and his class invited students from the nearby Palmer Academy to a maths lesson

Some year 10 students volunteered their services as The Palmer Academy visited Reading Girls' School in February with around 60 year 5 and 6 students. The visit was organised to try and help the primary school students gain some exposure to secondary mathematics and feel less daunted by the step up to secondary school.

Reading Girls’ School students made the resources for the day and came up with activities to introduce the kind of maths that is done at our school. Feedback from The Palmer Academy was extremely positive, with both staff and pupils commenting on how much fun they had had, with one member of staff from the primary school calling our students that helped out ‘a credit to the school’. Thanks to all the students who did so brilliantly to put together the ideas and run the maths activities, hopefully we’ll be able to welcome back The Palmer Academy sometime in the not too distant future.
