Maths in the Mansion - Step Back in Time

(0)
This resource pack has been researched and developed by the Education Team at Tatton Park. The purpose of the resource is to demonstrate the ways in which mathematics can be practically applied, to help children understand the importance of the subject beyond the classroom. In this instance, we have created a historical based pack, which highlights the ways in which the Victorian Housekeeping Team who served Tatton Park’s Mansion would have used maths in their daily life and work. The activities are therefore cross curricular and can be used to support the study of either Maths or History, or the two subjects together. The content is developed with Key Stage 2 in mind, but teachers are welcome to adapt the activities to suit the skill set of their own students, at higher or lower key stages. This document is intended as a teacher’s guide to the subject, and we hope that it will provide inspiration for your classroom studies.

For example, the family state coach used at the coronation of George V in 1911, a collection of ivory puzzle balls from China, a model kayak from Yukon and wrist knives from Kenya. These are just a few of the many items which we could draw on to devise wonderful new stories.
