We are delighted to announce the launch of our PGHS Maths newspaper, ‘The Sum’.
Every half term, a set of form groups from across all Key Stage 3 groups will be selected to take on the role of mathematical journalists. They will be given the opportunity to write newspaper articles which explore mathematics in real life applications and contexts.
The article headlines are fixed, with guidance and ideas provided on the school website on our Maths Enrichment page.
Students can chose to write articles from any of the following headlines :
Fashion and Finance
Careers that Count
Food for Thought
The first form groups selected are 7P, 8P and 9P. The classroom teacher of these groups will spend some time in their upcoming lessons exploring some of the key themes and reminding students of the academic vocabulary that should be used when writing from a mathematical viewpoint.
On completion of an article, students should email their work to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to reading the fantastic work and creative ideas submitted.
Be sure to look out for our premiere issue which will be emailed out in the week commencing 19th October.
