All Spaghetti Maths clubs are active and creative sessions where your child will experience the wonder of maths.
We've developed all our clubs to cater for the full age and ability range in Primary Schools. We've had 1000s of happy children attend our clubs and see how maths can inspire and enthuse them.
They will get to take something really cool away with them.
Unique to all Spaghetti Maths sessions, your child will build or create something in the club, which they take home with them.
It is really important to us that our classes are tactile and hands on experiences; after all, children (and adults) like doing practical and active things. Furthermore this enhances parental engagement in the class and facilitates a continuation of the discussion and learning at home.
Your child will:
- Create and bring home something each session
- Experience the wonder of maths
- See that maths can be fun and active

Look a the number in the top left hand corner of each square... 16, 8, 4, 2, 1 To work out the selected number, add up the numbers in the top left corner of the boxes in which it the number appears.
Why does it work? When you select cards containing your birthday you are in fact writing the date in binary. Surprised? The numbers we use in day-to-day life are written using ten digits from 0 to 9. This is called 'decimal' where each place in the number is worth units, tens, hundreds, thousands and so on, these numbers are powers of 10, 1, 10, 102, 103, .... So for example 546 in decimal stands for 6 units, 4 tens and 5 hundreds. In binary we use 0s and 1s only and each place in a number is worth units, twos, fours, eights and so on, doubling every time. For example the number 1011 in binary is (from right to left): 1 unit plus 1 two plus 0 fours plus 1 eight, so 1+2+8 =11. The fundamental thing here is that any number between 1 and 31 has a unique sequence of 0s and 1s in binary. Since we are using five places to write a number, all possible strings of 0s and 1s from 00001 to 11111 give you 31 different possibilities.
