NSPCC Maths Day 2024

Some problem solving solutions from Coates Primary School. The children played the memory game! It put their describing and drawing skills to the test! They even managed to test Mr Bradshaw in assembly. The children also solved some NRich problems and they published their own class books of their solutions.

Coates Primary School Published! 

Last year our year 4 teacher Alison Penney was part of the Girls in Maths project. She worked alongside the Local Authority and Nrich. Alison's project was successful, and in this success she was published in the national maths journal, Primary Mathematics. We are very proud of Alison and the hard work she contributed to this project and cascaded out to staff in wider CPD. Please see PDF below for the article that was published.

NSPCC Number Day 2023


At Coates Primary School we have taken part in Number Day this year. It was a fabulous day filled with problem solving, games, challenges all focused around number. We dressed up in digits, learned the importance of the charity NSPCC and why we were raising money as a school. At the end of the day we finished off in style by playing "Play Your Cards Right!" as a whole school.
