DEINIOLEN kids showed they were better at maths than their mums and dads during a fun project day at their school

Children from Ysgol Gwaun Gynfi took part in a special creative science, maths and art activity.

The "Lead Creative School,” which is working with the Arts Council for Wales, is part of the Lead Creative Schools Scheme and was previously awarded a £10,000 grant. Last year, £5,000 funded the children to create a book of nursery songs and an outdoor play area. This year, the remaining £5,000 saw them, involved in 16 weeks of science, maths and art.

A special day to celebrate the end of their hard work was attended by artist Mike Murray and the parents. The children showed them a sculpture they had made, science experiments and games. Parents were also tested against the kids in "Izak 9," a maths game on trial at the school.

Lynne Williams deputy head and Lead Creative School project leader said: "There was lot of fun and a lot of mess had!

"The kids especially enjoyed challenging the mums and dads at maths, they love the Izak 9 game, they beat them hands down!"
