P7 Maths Challenge : Tuesday 13th November 2018
Primary 7 pupils join together in Craigmount to engage in Maths workshops which, as well as developing numeracy skills, give pupils the opportunity to work with and get to know staff, senior students and pupils from other schools.
The P7 Maths Challenge is for all pupils in our associate primaries. They will come to the Maths department for a morning of activities. There are puzzles rooms and team event rooms. The pupils are mixed with other pupils from different primaries to give them an opportunity to meet with some of their peers. S2 pupils from Craigmount are used as helpers so the primary pupils will also make some friends with the other pupils.
Primary pupils aim to arrive about 9:00 for the start and will be available for collection from 11:30 to 11:45.
