Pupils will put maths to the test. 

They can explore shape, ratios, number patterns and angles in a series of challenges linked to the story of Marconi, radio communications, the Titanic and enemy agents.

Areas of maths covered include number work, angles, shape, area and symmetry. We can tailor session content for lower and upper KS2.


In this session, pupils will:


  • apply mathematical knowledge and skills to solve ‘real life’ problems
  • use team work and problem-solving skills to find solutions.
  • discover the story of Marconi and radio and the impact it has our lives today.
