I Spy Numeracy


numeracy dice

Numeracy – often alternatively called ‘mathematical literacy’ – is a life skill. It means having the confidence and competence to use numbers and other mathematical skills in areas of life.

At Blackburn Central High School students in Year 7 and Year 8 have been involved in an I Spy Numeracy activity where they identify what numeracy they have learnt or used in a lesson and with which teacher.

At the end of each week a raffle takes place and three members of staff will receive 1 of 5 exclusive  badges.
