Nunn Hayward, a firm of chartered accountants in Station Road, Gerrards Cross, provided children at St Mary’s School with a Maths Achievement Programme card last term setting targets for completing tasks in their mental arithmetic books by their maths teacher and for each target met children were given stars to show achievement and fill up their card.
Each morning, children had time before school to complete tasks to fill up their maths books and were also given the chance to attend voluntary maths sessions at lunch time.
Earlier this month, a presentation assembly was held to reward the youngsters who took part for their efforts, with awards being given out by Nunn Hayward partner Simon Dodd.
