Professor Poopenshtinken, the mathematical genius, came to visit us last week. He led an assembly for our children (and teachers) where he claimed to be the greatest mathematician ever. The Professor challenged Miss Gledhill and Miss Lisney to a Maths Race to prove he is the greatest mathematician ever. The Professor used giant magical number rods and stunned them by adding four 4 digit numbers in his head more quickly than the teachers could using calculators. We thought the Professor had got one wrong but he somehow managed to add up four 4 digit numbers on the back of the rods that he hadn't even seen! The children were mesmerised! He told all the children that he could teach them to do this trick (and many others) using only the power of numbers.
The Professor's friends will be coming back to school after half term (on Thursdays starting 21st April) to run super fun Magical Maths Clubs. The club is for KS2 children and will run for 6 consecutive weeks.
This club has all NEW games, tricks and puzzles.
Call 01744 776110 or visit www.magicalmathsclub.com/haltonsthelensandwarrington to book. Professor Poopenshtinken has told me that a lot of people have booked already and places are going quickly so book now to avoid disappointment.
