Three blind mice, musketeers and wise monkeys scampered into school for some number crunching fun.
Pupils at The Hawthorns Primary School were counting their blessings as they celebrated a maths week.
On Friday creative youngsters dressed up to a number theme. There wasn’t a calculator in sight, but instead an old-fashioned abacus and a cheery dice.
Teachers said the children had a great time and the week was a success in getting the pupils to engage with mathematics.
During the week problem solving pupils dived into workshops, scratched their heads over a sweet estimation competition and solved puzzles based on numbers worn by staff.
