This week Saturday Maths began again in earnest. Usually delivered across Advent and Lent terms, the scheme was delayed this academic year due to the extra planning required by Covid-19 restrictions, but it was a delight to begin work again with the Southwark Community Education Charity - with whom we have worked in partnership for nearly 30 years.
The first session was opened by Head, Mrs Lunnon, who was welcomed by Year 5 pupils from local state schools, all ready and waiting on screen waiting to find out about the history of numbers - the fascinating topic for session 1!
Overall we welcomed 40 Year 5 families, whose children will be mentored during the scheme by Alleyn's Year 11 students who give up a valuable slice of their weekend to volunteer. We are always very proud of their efforts and their contribution.
