On National Numeracy Day, (Wednesday 18th May), Year 4 took part in a very special event, streamed from King Solomon Academy in London.  As well as schools in Cardiff, Glasgow and County Tyrone, we joined National Numeracy Ambassadors Katya Jones (from Strictly Come Dancing) and Bobby Seagull (from University Challenge and so much more) to take part in a mass dance routine, choreographed by Katya herself. We rolled the numbers live on YouTube in an attempt to have the biggest audience ever tuned into a rolling numbers livestream.

A Guinness World Record adjudicator was on hand to guide us and announce that 4,220 people joined the livestream which smashed the last record (1,550) making us number heroes and Guinness World Record Holders!

Congratulations, Year 4, we are super proud of you all!
