Hands up for maths.
Children at Northlands Primary School, in Pinders Lane, were visited by Mr Numbervator, a teacher-turned-entertainer who helped to launch Numeracy 2000 with TV presenter Carol Vorderman.
He went to every class, playing maths games, quizzes and puzzles.
Headteacher Joyce James said: "The day was a combination of fun and challenge and was a real learning experience for the children.
"It's the beginning of an exciting new partnership between Northlands and Donnington - a beacon school in London."
Mr Numbervator is a teacher at Donnington who is on secondment to the Department for Education.
