PUPILS and parents at Finchingfield Primary school learnt that maths can be fun during a Maths Through Art day.
Five different art based activities were tackled to show maths isn't just about adding and subtraction.
Head teacher Paula Hagan, said: "Improving maths is one of the school's focuses for this year. One of the things we wanted to do was get parents involved and show them that maths isn't just about numbers.
"It was also important for the children to see the enjoyment of maths and how they come across it in everyday life."

Throughout the day, brains were put into gear and heads scratched as they solved problems such as Chinese puzzles, number sequences and 3-D shapes that develop spatial awareness.
Mrs Hagan hailed the day, the first of its kind at the school, as a success saying she was very pleased at the number of people who went along to join in. She also said the feedback she had received was very good, too.
