Abstract

This research study explores the differences in engagement and progress of pupils between practical and written based mathematics lessons in Year 4. This topic was chosen as I have always preferred to learn through hands-on experiences and I was intrigued to discover if there is a definitive way of learning that is more efficient than other methods.

This study draws on the responses of 27 Year 4 pupils, from a large coastal primary school, through a number of short questionnaires containing open and closed questions. The view-points of different teachers from the participating school are also discussed. This study has highlighted the importance of using a range of learning methods in Year 4 mathematics in order to secure pupils’ understand and enable the pupils to make efficient progress
