Clydeview Academy Numeracy Partnership with Dunoon Grammar School
In an interesting and exciting new project, Clydeview Academy and Dunoon Grammar, in collaboration with Glasgow University, are working together to increase student confidence in Numeracy. Both schools are keen to close the gap between their high attaining students and those who find Maths and Numeracy more challenging.
The Schools Improvement Partnership Programme (SIPPS) is funded by Education Scotland and its focus is to increase student confidence in Numeracy by using creative learning and teaching approaches and increased parental engagement. In addition, pupil profiles will be updated regularly and used to celebrate student achievement.
On Wednesday 29th October, fifty S3 pupils from both schools took part in a Challenge Day at Clydeview Academy. The pupils spent the day working in teams, made up from both schools, trying to solve logic puzzles and problem solving questions.
The winning team comprised Abbie Donati and Aimee Chisholm (Clydeview) and Briege Liddell and Evan Meyer-McDonagh (Dunoon) who were each presented with an iTunes voucher.
It was a very successful day and it is hoped that Dunoon Grammar will host the rematch!
