Pupils of the St Martin at Shouldham Primary Academy have shown they are good with figures by winning a county maths competition. Members of the school’s Year 6 Researchers class, pictured above, come out on top in the Sumdog competition, which saw more than 150 classes enter across the whole of Norfolk. Louise Waring maths co-ordinator at St Martin, said: “I am so proud once again of the Researchers. They worked so hard on the competition, particularly in their own time at home and in their breaks at school. The whole school took part and thoroughly enjoyed it. The sumdog app has had such a positive impact on the whole school and we will strive to win the next one.”
Accessible on the Apple iPad, the Sumdog app is designed to motivate students to practise maths, as well as reading and writing.
