Interactive maths day at Bishop's High School, by Mrs Bailey

Eight of our Year 5 pupils represented Oldfield on Monday at an Interactive maths day held at Bishop's High School.

Everyone really enjoyed calculating measurements of various pyramid shapes and exploring Bishop's High School to solve word problems.

Their favourite part of the day was the Village Challenge. Each group was given a budget of £125 and had to use this to purchase materials for the village they were constructing. We were thrilled to see the Oldfield group working productively as a team, coming first in this challenge.

Thank you to Bishop's High School staff for coordinating the event. Our children had a great day and came back even more enthused about maths and about Bishop's.
