Two teachers have visited Finland to learn a different approach to maths.

Kat Marsden and Phillippa Johnson, of Bourne Westfield Primary Academy, travelled to the country this month.

They secured a grant to help them develop maths tuition and decided as part of their project to visit the city of Turku to learn about Finnish methods of teaching. Pupils have also been chatting to schools in Finland online.

Admin manager Alison Smith said: “Finland is consistently ranked as one of the highest performance countries in mathematics and at Westfield both our teachers and our pupils are keen to learn about everyday life in Finnish schools.”
