An excellent video (although I wonder who paid for all those pies) showing students how to get the value of pi by arranging pies in a circular shape and then counting them.

I’ve been compiling a list of things that we are told to focus on whenever we attend professional development sessions. If you are a teacher, you will know from experience that there are so many things that you need to keep in mind before, during and after each lesson. If you are having problems remembering or staying focused, this should nudge you in the right direction. Good luck getting that ever-illusive “outstanding” from OFSTED, because if you drop the ball on some of these, you may as well kiss it goodbye!
