Maths is everywhere!

Have you ever wondered what hurricanes, the galaxy and the number of petals on a flower have in common?  Well, some mathematicians in Year 4 spend an extremely interesting and practical afternoon finding out the link between maths and the world around us.  As part of our regular Rushmoreable workshops organised by Mrs Fieldgate, Newport children worked alongside pupils from six other schools to examine number patterns. Using the playground as a giant piece of paper, the patterns were represented in a series of golden rectangles-expertly linked together by Alfie using brightly coloured chalk. Everyone was amazed at the wonders of the Fibonacci sequence and everyone agreed that “maths is everywhere!”.  A  very big thank you to Cranford Park for hosting the workshop and more events are planned for the coming year.
