The Pirate's Challenge is one of our most popular maths workshops - allowing up to 60 pupils at a time to have some piratical fun with numbers and shapes!
“Thanks very much for the pirate maths day with our children - which was thoroughly enjoyed!! They all came in wearing pirate bandanas today and we continued the pirate theme with both maths and literacy!" (Maths Co-ordinator, St Cecilia's Infant School, Liverpool)
“Captain Morgan was very child-friendly. Children engaged and group discussions when solving the problems helped to develop children’s mathematical vocabulary. (Maths Co-ordinator, Bishop Martin Primary, Lancashire)
When Captain Richard Morgan arrives at school, he’ll be more than a little confused. Because just a few hours beforehand he’ll have been on his pirate vessel, The Good Ship Mathematics, in the middle of the Caribbean! Swept to your school by a Time Tornado, he’ll need the pupils’ help to get back to his own time and place. Are they up to the Challenge? And it’s a Challenge that will test their understanding of number, shape and direction to the max.
Exploring: both additive and multiplicative reasoning, fractions, number patterns, mental and written calculation, elimination, 2D and 3D shapes, measurement, interpreting data, positional language, co-ordinates.
“A huge, huge thank you for today! The children (and staff) were absolutely captivated by Captain Morgan! The challenges were challenging but accessible to all; it was really well thought out and the whole day was time to perfection!"(Class Teacher, Christ Church School, Pellon)
