This is a maths lesson to support Year 6s with finding the mean. This was something that had been tested when my Year 6s were sitting a past paper and I found they had no idea, particularly the boys. As I have a boy heavy year group who are sometimes hard to enthuse, I have linked this lesson to football.There is a detailed powerpoint which explains finding the mean as an average and allows the children an opportunity to identify why/how this can be used in a real life context. On the powerpoint, there are three activities for the children to complete on wbs, to put into practice the things they have learnt. The main activity is a 'finding the mean treasure hunt'. There are 12 cards, which are linked to 12 Premier League teams. On each card, there is a set of data which reveals something about the football team: it may be the average age of a defender, or a midfielder. I strung these cards up around our school field, and children hunted them down, working in pairs and answering the questions on their answer sheet.Once the children had completed the questions, I modelled them using the document on the SMART board and addressed any misconceptions that had arisen.My class LOVED this activity and when I have revisited it during OMS, children always remember the "fun football activity!"
