A new after school Maths Club is
Maths@67 - Maths games and fun and homework help. Weds 4-5pm in term time at Community@67, 67 Queen's Road, Keynsham
being launched for Year 5 and Year 6 pupils at the Community@67 community
centre at 67 Queens Road, Keynsham.
June, Maths@67 will run every Wednesday afternoon in term time from 4-5pm for
Year 5 and 6 pupils from any of the primary schools in Keynsham and surrounding
areas. Castle, St John's and St Keyna have expressed
their enthusiasm for the project as a complement to their lessons. Children

is only able to take 12 – 15 young people, so if you are interested please get
in touch. Squash and biscuits will be provided during the break.
The club is

Hudson, Chair of Community@67, says, "Community@67 and Maths@67 are run

available in the area, the cost of the sessions puts them out of the reach of
many. Maths@67 will provide an affordable option and is very convenient as we
are based close to three of Keynsham's primary schools. There is a suggested
donation of £1 per child per session towards the running costs of the centre
but no one will be turned away due to lack of funds."
