Holy Trinity school in Cookham hosts maths problem solving day

There were some unexpected additions at Holy Trinity CE School, in Cookham, for a special maths session.

The children at the primary school, in School Lane, were joined by pupils from Cookham Rise Primary, in High Road; St Peter’s CE Primary, in Burnham; St Mary’s Catholic Primary and St Luke’s CE School, both in Cookham Road, Maidenhead.

The youngsters took part in a day of mathematical problem solving on Wednesday, April 13, led by Dr Tandi Clausen-May, an education researcher and writer.

Speaking afterwards, headteacher Anna Smith, who has hosted several similar sessions at the school, said: “The sessions are very engaging and motivational and it’s always interesting to have a visiting speaker in the school.

“But what’s also really beneficial it that the children have an opportunity to integrate with children from other schools – it benefits them from a social as well as a learning perspective.”
