Maths of the Day Event




On Monday 4th July we went to Holy Family School with Mrs Barnes for an Athlete Ambassador Event for Maths of the Day. There were 6 other school attending the event. We met Jon Boyton who is an Olympic sprint kayak champion, he is currently ranked 5th in Europe. We heard how Jon didn’t start kayaking until he was 10 years old (the same age as we are now). He told us he was terrible to start with but gradually got better and better. He told us of the disappointment he experienced when he lost his place in the British Team and how that made him even more determined to succeed.


After break (and some delicious cake) we played some Maths of the Day games with Jon Smedley, who founded Maths of the Day. We got to try out a new game – called Backwards Bingo and then we played ‘Run Calculate’ (which we won!!) Ocean and Titus.
