Our Whole School Maths days are the perfect way to raise the profile of maths in your school – and can comfortably accommodate up to a whole two-form entry school in a single day. Each sees a character with a fully fleshed-out backstory spending the entire day with you, engaging every class in a narrative that sees all pupils working towards a single, shared end. And as each comes complete with a healthy dose of humour, they’re guaranteed to create a whole-school maths buzz!
"Fabulous! As a maths specialist I had a great day and it was lovely to hear the children so excited about it. 11 out of 10 - couldn't rate it any higher!" St Aidan's CE Primary School
Four Whole School Character-led Maths Days to choose from:
The Pirate’s Challenge
Captain Morgan is lost! and needs your pupils help, using their problem solving skills, to find The Good Ship Mathematics.
The Riddle of the Sphinx
With a clear focus on concepts of measurement and featuring a deceptively fiendish concrete maths challenge, acclaimed Egyptologist “Dr Colorado Smith” needs your pupils help to solve a 3,000 year old puzzle.
Benny Factor has identified a range of deserving community projects to donate to, but who should receive the money? This day of activity will allow your pupils meaningful opportunities to develop their skills with the maths of money!
The Race into Space
Major Tom needs your pupils’ help, using age appropriate maths skills, to rank six would-be spacefarers on a range of real, scientific criteria. Who will they select to be the next UK astronaut?
“5* – it was a wonderful way to engage and motivate the children with problem solving and reasoning. We would definitely book again!” Riverview Primary
