She has also helped the children to draw emotions based on the characters in her own books.

Maths Day at HCH

When students budget their life for a year (including national insurance), spend money at a funfair, find treasures on giant monster graphs, buy and sell stickers on the stock market, graph various experiments, go Easter egg hunting, draw Mondrians or Hirsts or brave the cold to decipher messages using... Semaphore, then we know Maths Day has arrived!

Our annual Maths Day had the theatre buzzing with numbers and saw students from Nursery to Year 11 enjoying different activities, applying skills learnt and showing their creative side.

A huge thank you goes out to everyone supporting the event, especially our Sixth Formers Anais and Brynley who came in at 8.50 am to help out with the funfair.
