Clever kids and mathematically-minded Marton youngsters enjoyed a day of adding, subtracting, fun and games.

Pupils at Marton Primary School discovered new and imaginative ways to enjoy working with numbers and learning from home as part of Maths Day.

School teacher Mr Stock said: “We wanted to show the kids that maths can be very enjoyable through different challenges, board games and different opportunities.”

“We gave them home learning packs that they could take home with them with lots of different games that they can do in their spare time.”

He continued: “We’ve also been loaning out Nintendo DS’s so that kids can enjoy doing maths at home in a new and exciting way. It’s all about motivating the children.Parents can come in and get involved too. We must have had 70 per cent of parents coming to look around to see what it was all about.”

He added: “I hope we’ve enthused and energised the children about maths and lots of the children have already been asking for another maths day because they absolutely loved it.”
