Out of this world maths for Bedford Primary pupils
by Tom Martin

A BOOTLE school called upon the services of a local astronaut to help them promote a new maths-based challenge.

Bedford Primary School used the character to encourage youngsters to get involved in a new project which centres around the theme of space.

Each pupil has been given a ‘Maths Intergalatic Tracker' to help them make a journey to different plants where they face new challenges.

Once they complete the skills on an individual planet the children will receive a postcard from the astronaut telling their family they have landed on the planet and have learnt new mathematical skills.

Lucy Shore, the assistant head for key stage 2 said: “The main aim of the initiative is to enable the children to learn all the necessary skills in their year group through a fun, imaginative and educational method.

”The children are really excited and engaged in the project and showing great enthusiasm for their maths to take them on their space journey.“
