    The Count on Us Primary Maths Challenge is in its’ sixth year, engaging schools across London in an exciting tournament and challenging Key Stage 2 pupils in their shape, mental maths and problem-solving skills. At the beginning of the year teachers are trained in all the activities, and then run these activities as maths clubs back at their schools. In the Spring term they select a team of 3 pupils to represent their school and compete against other teams in a bid to make the final, held on the top floor of City Hall!

    A dynamic, interactive and super fun way to engage pupils in maths, the Count on Us Primary Challenge has proven impact on pupil performance and skills. 95% of participating teachers in 2018 stated that the programme had had a positive impact on their pupils’ confidence and attitude towards maths. It’s also a great leadership development opportunity for teachers and staff, as we provide training as well as an extensive resource kit for you to take back and use in school.
