On Wednesday last week I took my first full lesson. It was a Year 9 class and I was teaching them multiplying decimals – not the most exciting of topics…

I made it interesting by discussing Formula 1 and where decimals can be found in the race cars and stats about the next race this weekend. We worked with track length and number of laps to find total distance travelled etc. It was a really positive lesson and the pupils really enjoyed it.

What I’m most proud of is that on Monday this week a fellow WWLCSD trainee was teaching the same pupils about sport in her MFL lesson and one of the pupils from my class started telling her how he was learning all about F1 in Maths with me. It was really nice that even after the rest of the week and the weekend that my lesson had stuck with him.
