    Primary pupils engage in maths calculations through playing games. Headteacher Kate Frood and her enthusiastic staff at Eleanor Palmer School in Camden, North London, use calculation games in maths to engage and invigorate their primary pupils. Year 3 play "Four Rolls to a Hundred" where in teams they have to roll a die, then choose whether or not they should multiply the number by ten to get as close to 100 as they can. "Code Breaking" challenges Year 6 to establish the value of the word "table" having been given the numeric value of just some of the letters. Later, Year 1 practice their counting on skills in a simple but fun dice game they call "Bird Race". Each roll moves them up the "board" towards the finish.
