Kate Richards, former maths teacher and manager of Hastings Adventure Golf, said, ”I know from experience that demonstrating maths in a practical way is often the key to pupils’ learning success.

“So once again we are giving schools the chance to win this immersive and fun learning opportunity.

“It’s also a ready made, planned lesson - so teachers won’t have any prep work.”

Maths knowledge is a vital skill and finding new ways to involve pupils in the practical applications of the subject is very much welcomed.

“It gives more pupils across the county a chance to play and learn maths in a very creative way.”
