What outcomes can you expect?
These case studies illustrate some of the experiences of schools and pupils who have previously been involved in maths clubs
1. Case Study - Improving number fluency
This maths club focuses on improving number fluency through the use of games. The club fits well within the overall schools maths plan and it had influenced some of the developments for the whole school.
2. Case Study - Encouraging children to engage in maths
This school quickly realised that taking a more formal approach to maths and using the club to act as a booster didn’t inspire the children to want to attend. Using a more interesting theme and having a relaxed atmosphere where children felt they could make mistakes meant that children were enthusiastic to come and saw it as a privilege.
3. Case Study - Creative approach to maths
Using an enterprise theme this club promoted real life experience of mathematical skills. They took a creative approach to they club and engaged the children in making their own maths club company.
4. Case Study - World Maths Day Event 2015
The projects funder Lloyd’s Charities Trust invited maths club children to the Lloyd’s of London building to celebrate World Maths Day. 4 maths clubs from across London descended on the underwriting floor to challenge the professionals at a variety of maths games and activities.
5. Case Study - Setting up your maths club
This case study looks at Lovelace Primary School in Kingston who set up 3 maths clubs using the Kick Start grant from the Mayor’s Fund for London.
