Paul the Pharmacist visits Lerryn! 27 Feb 2012

Lerryn were fortunate to be visited by Paul the Pharmacist who spoke about how we need and use maths in all forms of life. He shared with the children the various equipment that he uses to support his work, in particular several counting aids. Paul then demonstrated to the children how it was used and challenged them to a counting competition to show how much quicker it is than normal counting methods. The children then worked in a carousel, where they were having a go at different mathematical problems related to being a Pharmacist. The children were extremely engaged and enthusiastic throughout and certainly benefitted from this experience. Thank you Paul for coming in to share your expertise with the children.

Below is a selection of photographs from the afternoon and it is clearly evident to see how engaged the children were!
