Hinckley & Rugby Building Society has donated prizes to primary school children in Leicestershire, as part of a maths project run by local charity, Leicestershire Cares.
Year Four pupils at Queensmead Primary Academy in Leicester won the maths games after taking part in an online version of Number Partners – a scheme which normally sees volunteers visit local primary schools to play maths-based board games with children in a bid to help them improve their maths skills and confidence with numbers. The winning team was one of 18 schools across Leicestershire who took part.
Having volunteered with the project since 2012, Hinckley & Rugby Building Society provided the prizes and made a video featuring ‘real’ pirates for The Great Pirate Treasure Hunt maths challenge, in place of its usual volunteering experience.
