A magician has been helping children solve maths problems.

Richard Ballinger visited Tickenham Primary School to teach youngsters how numbers can be fun through art, fashion design and ratios using squash recipes.

Pupils also had the chance to win a pretend £5 note by solving challenges.

Tristan Merriam, co-headteacher, said: “It was a brilliant day.

“We want to stretch every single pupil to be their very best but also to make maths fun.
