Treviglas was delighted to welcome some of the more able primary students from Years 3 and 4 in the Newquay area to a maths masterclass this week. Students completed a number of challenges focusing upon patterns and sequences, including pictorial sequences and times tables. They then used their knowledge to work out terms for themselves, including building up to work at GCSE level!
Students participated enthusiastically in all the challenges set before them. Woody, from Goonhavern School, said, “It was really fun”
Ruby, from Perranporth School commented, “I have really enjoyed it.”
Meanwhile, Key Stage 1 students from schools in the Newquay area attended a literacy masterclass for more able learners. The children, from Years 1 and 2, explored the theme of pirates, using many visual prompts, including handling a treasure chest with items of treasure. The culmination of their session was writing a pirate story on a treasure map.
During the morning the primary children were ably assisted by Treviglas literacy leaders, some of whom were in fancy dress, to add to the visual stimulus. Meelie, a Year 7 student, said, “I enjoyed seeing all the children’s ideas.”
Ewan, a student from Trevisker School, stated, “I really liked doing the treasure maps.”
The programme of more able masterclasses at Treviglas continues after half-term, with many sessions on offer for students of all year groups in partner primary schools.
