Victoria Lock -Headteacher at Devoran Primary School
"I would also like to thank you for such a powerful, fun and engaging day that really helped to demonstrate to the children who may otherwise say 'I don't like maths', that maths IS for everyone and that we can all learn in a variety of ways. It was wonderful to see the children actively trying to work out how you had performed the trick and I love the way that so many talked about going home to share it with their family. That is the sign of a great workshop!"
David Hick - Deputy Headteacher at Threemilestone School & CODE Maths Hub Lead
"What a brilliant day Jon delivered with his 'Magic Maths'. The children (and adults!) were captivated during the launch assembly, firstly with the magic and then with the maths behind it. The subsequent workshops continued in the same fashion where a real excitement for mathematics was generated as the children learnt the 'tricks' and some very relevant mathematics. We can't wait for the next one!"
Hollie Bearn - Headteacher at St Newlyn East Primary School
"Jon engaged the children straight away in the assembly at the start of the day, the children were eager to know and learn more. The children were trying to continually work out how the tricks and maths were done and once they were shown they knew that it was obtainable. Jon worked with our youngest children to the eldest where he broke the maths down to their level and maintained their interest levels throughout. The children were wowed, mesmerised and took home a thirst for knowledge to know more about maths!"
Kim Joyce - Penryn Primary Maths Lead
"Having Jon into our school has really broadened the children's minds with what you can do with maths. They have been inspired to go home and practice the 'tricks'. We have even had some children teach our younger children! Jon is very professional and flexible. He is happy and adaptable in all situations. We really enjoyed having his visit and look forward to working with him again."
Rob Penhaligon - Maths Teacher at Penryn College
"Jon Martin spent 2 days with us at Penryn College delivering maths magic workshops to every student in year 7. All of the students enjoyed their sessions and it really helped them by using some key mathematical concepts in his tricks. Jon captured the attention of our students with his enthusiastic performances which were accessible to students of all abilities. We look forward to welcoming him back in the future."
Emma Shaw - Maths at Lead Gwinear School
"Magic Maths day was fabulous. The children came away with a new found fascination with numbers and loved exploring the different tricks. Every child in KS2 was able to participate in the tricks and KS1 loved watching the magic show at the end of the day, Multiple children recreated the math magic show for their families at home. I would highly recommend Jon to every school."
Amy Mills - Maths Lead at St Budeaux Foundation C of E (Aided) Junior School
"Booking Jon was easy from start to finish, prompt to reply and accommodating to our needs and very professional. On the day he provided a fantastic, engaging day for all the children, they were blown away by the tricks that he shared during the assembly show and they really enjoyed having him visit each class. I would highly recommend booking Jon, he was able to bring Maths alive and show it in a real-life context, he made it fun and interesting for the children and they were eager to learn more."
Sam Smith - Maths Lead @ Stratton Primary School
"What a brilliant and mesmerising day Jon delivered with his ‘Magic Maths’! The launch assembly had children (and adults!) captivated by the magic and listening attentively to the maths involved. The workshops continued to grip the children and had them excited to join in with the magic whilst learning the importance of the maths behind each trick. Jon went above and beyond to cater for our wishes to work with a younger audience and ensured the day ran smoothly so a splendid day was had by all!"
Caroline Sales - Deputy Headteacher at Carbeile Junior School
"Jon launched our school Magic Day with an assembly show where he showcased some amazing maths tricks. He then spent the day working with pupils to demonstrate how the tricks work. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and couldn't wait to share the Maths Magic with their families."
