Ammanford Accountants, Ashmole & Co, are helping to support the young local mathematicians of the future by making a donation to Ysgol Llandybie Primary School to help with the purchase of the online maths resource for pupils called MyMaths.
Llandybie Primary school took the decision last year to purchase MyMaths as a result of pupils having to study at home during lockdown or self isolation. The resource was so successful that the school has decided to continue to subscribe again this year to help pupils and parents with the teaching of maths at home.
Llandybie Head Teacher, Rhian Pritchard, said, “Fundraising has been virtually impossible during the past 18 months but we are keen to continue using online resources to enhance our pupils’ learning experience but they come at an extra cost. We are grateful to Ashmole and Co for the donation which will enable us to continue the provision of online maths learning.”
The MyMaths programme allows teachers to set tasks for pupils as well as provide them with tutorials to show them the mathematical concepts being taught. It is able to assist in all areas of mathematics from shape to space, data to financial literacy.
Laura Craddock, Partner in Ashmole & Co’s Ammanford office, said, “We are always keen to offer our support locally. We are more than happy to help fund the online resource MyMaths to help train the local accountants of the future.”
