Walking, Talking Maths Revision

Last Thursday saw the return of the “Walking Talking” mock exam at Test Valley School.

All Year 11 pupils were able to experience how to achieve 100% in a real GCSE Maths exam. The twist was that Mr Whatley or Mrs Luckham were doing the test alongside them: explaining how to answer questions, show workings and picking out key points and exam techniques to use in their answers. This means that all pupils have now had a positive experience of a GCSE exam before their mock exams start. We are all very aware of the increased level of challenge that the new 9-1 curriculum has brought and this is another example of how the maths department continues to explore innovative ways to make learning maths relevant and engaging to ensure all learners are able to succeed.
