Being an A.R millionaire is a huge achievement and they should all feel very proud of their effort this year.  Some of the older pupils have reached TWO, THREE and even FOUR million words!!


Mathletics – Gold Achievement

Mathletics – Gold Certificates 2016 – 2017

In 2015 – 2016 we had 44 children achieving a Gold Mathletics certificate and this year we have 51!

They all gathered together to celebrate their success and talk about what they’ve enjoyed learning in maths this year.  The top three answers:

  1. Fractions
  2. Multiplication
  3. Area

It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to achieve a Gold certificate in Mathletics.  Well done!

To do this animates offers educational workshops for schools, clubs and public events.
