Cornish kids got to work at the NatWest Bank, Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust, Proper Cornish, Children’s Hospice South West and the Met Office on a ‘Maths at Work’ day.

The St Austell schoolchildren, who were all from Year Six (age nine to eleven) of Pondhu primary, spent Wednesday on a council-backed foray into the real-world workplace.

Senior Community Fundraiser for Children’s Hospice South West Sarah Stott said “It was absolutely fantastic to be involved with this Maths at Work day.

“We set the children a £20 challenge to see if they could come up with a plan to see how much money they could raise from an initial investment of £20.

“I think we definitely have some potential young fundraisers amongst the group!”

Year Six teacher Mr Martin said the Pondhu pupils responded brilliantly to the range of activities.

He explained: “It was a really useful afternoon in terms of showing the “real world” practical applications for maths as well as helping to raise aspirations in terms of future employment.”
