Magical Maths

Date: 30th Mar 2017 @ 4:55pm

Professor Poopenshtinken, the mathematical genius, came back to school again this week. He showed us a new trick that the Mathemagician had taught him. Firstly he had some volunteers shuffle a jumbo pack of playing cards and then told us he could find all four aces using only the magic of maths. His volunteers chose random numbers and the professor counted down that number in the pack, they then added the digits of their chosen number together and gave him that many cards back. After the volunteers had recited the magic words "Piff Paff Poopenshtinken" the card they were left with each time was the ace. The children were stunned! The Professor confessed that it was just a trick and explained he would show the children how do it and many others in the new club.

The Professor's friends will be coming back to school to run super fun Magical Maths Clubs. The activities in this club are completely NEW. There are separate clubs for KS1 and KS2 and they will run on Wednesdays starting on 19th April for 6 consecutive weeks. Call 01744 776110 or visit to book. Professor Poopenshtinken tells me that places get booked really quickly so book now to avoid disappointment. If your child is eligible for Free School Meals school may be able to help with payment - see the school office for more details.
