Motion text

That this House congratulates Class P6.21 from Mearns Primary School on obtaining the highest score in a numeracy competition involving 2,149 classes from across the UK, using online learning engine, Sumdog; notes that Class P6.21 achieved an overall score of 879 out of a possible 1,000 correct answers, beating its nearest rival, also from a Scottish primary school, by just six answers; further notes that P6.21 class member, 10 year old Euan Inglis, achieved the 18th highest score out of the 21,309 pupils participating in the competition; considers this result a credit to class teacher Anna Cairns, whose P6.21 class has twice triumphed in East Renfrewshire numeracy contests; and commends the approach of Edinburgh-based Sumdog, whose online educational games are now used in 20 per cent of US primary schools and 25 per cent of UK primary schools for aiming to make learning fun for everyone.
