Farming and Countryside

School projects such as food and land use can be substantially enhanced by a visit to the countryside, and will provide opportunities for maths activities such as surveys, scale, linear and square measures, and investigations involving volume, weight and money. These basic elements of the numeracy curriculum have greater meaning when applied to the real-life situations of farming and the countryside.

Allotment & Maths Project
The project took place in the grounds of St Joseph's Primary School.  A Year 6 teacher & Numeracy Coordinator created an allotment to create concrete links for children between numeracy skills and the outdoor environment.
