National Numeracy Day 2020


Thank you so much for all your efforts for National Numeracy Day last Wednesday. I really enjoyed seeing many of you take part in the fun activities set and I absolutely loved all your maths inspired costumes.

Please watch the video to see what everyone got up to and the amazing costumes some of the children created. 


I just couldn't decide on a 1st, 2nd or 3rd prize as they are all incredibly creative and a lot of effort has been put into them. All the children who created their own costume will receive a prize in the post soon.

Well, I have had fun today reading e-mails and watching videos of some of you attempting to solve the tricky maths challenge I set on Friday! I must admit, it is a really tricky one. I also loved seeing how your worked with your family to solve it.

You have to look so closely to see that the little boy is actually holding 2 cones and wearing a pair of trainers! 

You also have to think about how you work out the calculation Very tricky indeed!


I am pleased to announce joint 1st place winners and a second place. A BIG well done to these children:


1st PLACE - Luke & Joel Downing (Y2 and Y4) who worked together to solve it and Ethan Townsend in Y3


2nd PLACE - Dillon Keen in Y4
