Children at Beeston Rylands Junior School took up the challenge to play an outdoor game of active maths whilst being sponsored to raise money to buy the kit.
Each class had a session playing the numbers game Tagtiv8, which involves running to grab numbered tags and solving maths puzzles.
Pupils raised £218.78 to buy their own bag of Tagtiv8 kit for the school.
Evolve Health Mentor Danny Brown, who works in the school near Nottingham, organised the event with Sue Osborne, Year 6 and Junior School Head.
Danny said: “I ran some sessions and the children loved it. It’s a fun way for pupils to learn maths while boosting their physical activity. Well done to all who took part and especially Alfie who raised £34 by himself. A great achievement.”
