millfield_medA New Direction: Raising attainment in Maths through Architecture

Our Hut was commissioned by A New Direction to carry out a project with Reception children at Millfields Community School in Clapton, which was designed to raise attainment in maths through architecture. The teachers felt strongly that through learning about architecture and the built environment the children had gained a particularly secure understanding of maths concepts, such as shape, symmetry and measuring, and were able to apply their knowledge confidently in practical outcomes.
