John Clifford Primary & Nursery School ‘Be your best. Celebrate success. Together we will be successful.’

The whole school has gone 'Mad for Maths'

Today is the last day of our Maths Challenge Week! All week the children have been tackling a variety of mathematical challenges, problems and puzzles. They have been making connections between maths and other areas of the curriculum and learning how to develop their reasoning skills in a variety of contexts.


In their daily maths learning, all the children from Foundation Stage up to Year 6 have been working towards developing the knowledge, understanding and skills necessary to tackle a whole school challenge called Frames. The excitement began at 9 a.m. today!
