Problems of logic, shapes and numbers were among the challenges that the 178 pupils of Baston Primary School had to solve to raise money for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.

It was part of the NSPCC’s Numbers Day at the school in Main Road, when all the five to 11 year old children wore clothes with a number on it and got involved in all things mathematical.

Emma Gowers, maths co-ordinator at the school, said: The idea was to raise money for NSPCC in a fun way.

“It helped to bring the subject to life, making it hands on and fun.

“It’s important to make maths fun and meaningful and make sure they enjoy 
it.”
