Youngsters at South Park Primary School, Water Lane, Seven Kings, dressed up and played maths games as part of NSPCC’s numbers day.

The school raised more than £425 for the charity in the process.

Headteacher Debbie Keigwin said the day was a “huge success”.

At Downshall Primary School, Meads Lane, Seven Kings, parents have been teaching children about “everyday maths” as part of workshops organised by charity National Numeracy and The Mayor’s Fund For London.

Tess Sullivan from The Mayor’s Fund for London said its Parental Engagement project “encourages more parents to participate in their children’s maths education”.
