I ran a primary challenge day for all local primary schools. It was run by myself, year9 students and college students (from the local college who are studying maths). It gave the G&T pupils an insight into problems solving fun maths. Really this should be done in year 7 too, perhaps have a maths day! However, the whole ethos around teaching year 7 needs addressing. The tables should be grouped. Pupils should be sat in tables of ability but encouraged to discuss and share ideas. However, you must ensure that expectations are high at all times. Perhaps ensure that pupils can't ask the teacher until they have asked 2 peers. This is the kind of king that goes on in primary and pupils have bags of confidence to just try things,. Make sure that tasks challenge pupils thinking.
