One new aspect that was piloted in the programme was the use of 'MathsBuddy', a specialist session on numeracy skills. This proved to be very successful, holding the attention of the children for two hours as they focused on numeracy using carefully designed mathematical games and puzzles. Such was the success of this initiative that it will become a feature of future schemes.

Thank you for doing the workshops at the Summer Schemes last week. The feedback from young people was excellent and one ‘didn’t know that maths could be so fun’. Thanks again,
