Britannia Village Primary School, a thriving multi-cultural inclusive school in the heart of Newham, East London, already a Google Reference School, is celebrating its new status as a Centre of Excellence for ICT in Mathematics. The school – rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted – was awarded its new status by 3P Learning, international provider of curriculum-mapped learning resources for maths and English and the team behind the number one worldwide resource for maths, Mathletics.
The school will play an important role in the wider community, becoming a go-to point for best practice in the application of ICT software. Head of School, Kiel Richardson is thrilled to be at the helm of this exciting development, and is opening his doors to extend a warm invitation to teaching staff at neighbouring schools keen to find out how they too can use innovative resources such as Mathletics to encourage increased independent engagement.
Since adopting Mathletics, pupils have become more engaged in maths learning at home, enjoying the ‘gamified’ approach that the resource encourages, with its fun activities, animations and competitions where children are able to compete live with other pupils from across the globe.
“Achievements are celebrated regularly within our school which has raised the profile of home learning,” said Kiel Richardson, Head of School.
Commenting on the school’s use of Mathletics, Luke Craig, ICT Leader, said, “It has so much potential to help children master maths and we are happy to share how we use this program.”
At 4.15pm on Wed 27th March, Britannia Village Primary School will host its first free maths best practice session for teachers at neighbouring schools. All are welcome! Please click on the link to book your free space.
