In maths the S2s were learning how a virus spreads from person to person. The teacher demonstrated with a pack of cards, the red ones showing the people who could be infected, and the black ones showing the people couldn’t be infected. The teacher, while demonstrating, separated the red and black cards into groups, and this showed how many people could escape the virus.
All of the pupils were interested because it was an active way of learning.
One of the pupils said that they thought learning this was interesting and how many people die from viruses.
The teacher thought that the pupils would be interested in how viruses spread. Also a lot of viruses are lurking about the planet such as Ebola.
The pupils then went off to play their own little game in a group of two or three.
