Maths & Numeracy school trips

Great venues you can count on!

While some pupils may not like subjects such as History or English, it is more likely due to them finding it boring rather than not actually understanding it. Maths, or numeracy, on the other hand is one of those subjects that we would all like to understand, but which many of us, children especially, either grasp or else find rather difficult to get our head around.

The first step in teaching maths is developing an appreciation for the subject. Understanding why we need to learn about mathematics, and how being able to work with numbers can help us so much in our every day lives, and even give us access to all the really 'cool' professions like computer engineering or space science, is half of the battle. Once you have a class of enthusiastic pupils who actually want to learn about reasoning and problem solving, algebra and statistics, decimals and fractions, times tables, or the properties of shapes, handing out those worksheets full of fractions and functions tables will seem less of an uphill battle.

As with many other subjects, it is definitely easier to inspire kids when they are out on a field trip. Taking your class outside the classroom to see numbers in action could really benefit their understanding of the subject and why it is so important that they learn what you are trying to teach them. So, if you are looking for a school trip with a numeracy or statistical focus to engage your pupils, we've probably got it below.
