Pupils from 13 local primary schools recently pitted their wits against one another during a series of challenging activities highlighting the fun side of maths.

John Spendluffe Technology College hosted its fourth annual Maths Roadshow 
led by arithmetician Paul Godding who specialises in designing ‘fun and effective mathematical challenges’ to feed youngsters’ enthusiasm in the subject.

JSTC’s administration manager Teri Chatterton said: “The children absolutely loved it - two of my godchildren took part and said it was very exciting and much more fun than maths is usually.”

Four children from each primary school were supported by two ‘gifted and able’ year eight students at the college to test their abilities in a series of puzzles, card games and board games involving numerical challenges.

Mablethorpe Primary Academy’s team topped the tables followed by pupils at Seathorne Primary School in second with third place going to Withern Primary.
