As a school we are always striving to make the teaching of mathematics as enjoyable and as hands on as possible.  In 2014/15 we purchased some new sets of equipment for mathematics called Izak9.  This fantastic resources was developed by a local inventor and teacher.  It is intended to foster group work and problem-solving for Key Stage 2 pupils.  The children have access to fun interactive apparatus and great supporting software.  

!zak9 is used as part of teachers' lessons as well as in a S.T.E.M. afternoon workshop.  The children enjoy the challenge, the opportunity to work together and to interact with the software provided.  

It is our hope that Izak9 will inspire our children to mathematics an enjoyable and exciting part of the curriculum.
