Event Description:  School Workshop / Visit Creative maths for up to 420 pupils in a single day! The search is on for Britain's next astronaut - and Major Tom wants your pupils help in selecting the best person for the job. He's found six well-suited candidates, all with different qualifications - but it's up to you to decide which one will win The Race into Space – representing Britain on a global stage! After meeting the Major at an opening assembly, and being introduced to the would-be astronauts, each class will be issued with a Mission: to use their maths skills to rank the candidates on one of a number of qualities. Each Mission calls on pupils to demonstrate mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem-solving abilities - and is in line with National Curriculum objectives for their year group. The Major will be on hand to visit each classroom with some vital, additional information - and the programme ends with a second assembly in which each class reports back its findings and helps whittle the field down to just one: Britain's next astronaut. Major Tom knows public interest in space exploration will only be sustainable if astronauts look like ordinary people – so our six candidates come from surprisingly wide walks of life! This exciting and engaging workshop provides an ideal platform for one or two-form entry schools to enjoy a shared maths experience - and learn something about the science of space travel too! Suitable for: EYFS - Y6 / P1 - P7. Duration: one day Exploring: a range of skills in data handling and/or numerical operations and/or understanding shape - selected for each year group in line with National Curriculum objectives.
