Sums took on an exciting new twist when a Spalding school held a mixed up maths day.

St Norbert’s Roman Catholic Primary School involved all 189 pupils in various problem solving exercises, from examining the scene of a mountain climber’s potentially fatal fall to making cakes with a random selection of ingredients using no recipes and no measurements other than estimation skills.

The day was organised by the school’s numeracy coordinator, Jeanette Jameson, to help children understand how maths can be applied in a wide variety of situations.

Year 6 teacher Jenna Withers said: “It involved lots of problem solving.”
