Bede’s prep pupils practice their maths skills in Meads Village

April 6, 2018

Reception pupils at Bede’s Prep enhanced their maths learning on a visit to Meads Village near Eastbourne.

As part of the class’ focus on ‘Making Maths Real’, the pupils handled real coins to purchase a piece of fruit of their choice from the shop.

Rachel Potter, Head of Reception and Year 1, said: “The children had their own coins and paid for their purchase. This promoted some extremely valuable discussion and vocabulary, both in the shop and for their future learning after our trip. Their behaviour was impeccable and several members of the public commented on their lovely manners!”
