Mathematical Travels: Problem-Solving Adventures Around the Globe

Junior STEM Camp for Reception to Year 3  

28-31 May 2024: Face to Face at Francis Holland School, Sloane Square

39 Graham Terrace, SW1W 8JF


Is your child ready for an amazing adventure? Join our Junior STEM camp for a globe-trotting journey filled with exciting challenges and playful problem-solving! Participants will embark on a fun-filled expedition where they'll learn vital maths skills through real-life travel scenarios.

In this camp children will be invited to go on an imaginary journey. Modelling real-life situations, our activities will encourage children to solve the mathematical problems every traveller deals with:

  • reading a map and calculating distances

  • managing a budget by calculating hotel costs and comparing travel deals

  • understanding timetables and estimating travel times

  • decoding messages written in unfamiliar languages

Children will tackle all these challenges through a variety of exciting games and problems. They will also practise extracting information from charts and tables and learn about compound measures like speed and cost per mile while developing decision-making skills.

The scientific project for this camp is about electronics and follows the spirit of journeys and travelling - children will construct a small model train with carriages. Pupils will learn about safety in electronics and how a circuit works as they create their battery powered engine and link up its trucks. Once completed, each child can take their train home with them to demonstrate what they have learned and achieved.

As usual this camp also features Coding and Chess. In Coding our campers learn about programming - how it works, how much fun it is and ‘debugging’ - the process of each child checking their work if the programme doesn’t run. We develop new coding projects for every camp.

In our tutored Chess classes children of all levels can raise their game, from tuition in the rules, to strategy and tactics depending on each child’s experience to date.

The camp runs from either 9am to 12pm or 1pm to 4pm over four days. Each three hour day is divided into classes on the topics above with comfort breaks and opportunities to stop for drinks and a snack.

Learning groups are very small with a pupil to teacher ratio of 6 to 1. These are tailored for each child’s age and level of experience with the subject to provide appropriate levels of simplicity or complexity.

Get ready to pack your bags for an unforgettable mathematical adventure!

Format and fees for the junior face to face camp (Reception to Year 3 / Ages 4.5 to 8.5):

  • small groups of similar age and experience. Pupil to teacher ratio is 6 to 1
  • four days from Tuesday to Friday from either 9am to 12pm or 1pm to 4pm , but not both
  • fees are £380 for all four days. It is not possible to join for a shorter period
