Count on Us Primary Challenge
Count on Us is the Mayor’s Fund for London’s numeracy programme. We work with schools to help young Londoners reach greater attainment levels in numeracy. The programme aims to make maths fun and improve confidence around learning as well as improving academic attainment, ultimately improving life chances and helping young people make a positive contribution to society.
The Count on Us Primary Challenge is part of this exciting initiative, offering Year 4 and 5 pupils the opportunity to compete against their peers in a pan-London Maths tournament at City Hall.
“The competition is a fantastic event! Our school has taken part for the last two years and all the children involved have had a great experience. The enthusiasm and interest for the game has now gone whole school wide, with lunch time clubs set up and children regularly completing in class! All the children involved have demonstrated clear progress in their mental maths methods. The attainment of their number skills has increased significantly. Our current year 4 children are already practising for the next year event and are keen to be selected for the team.”
