Live Virtual Show for Key Stage 3 (Year 7 - 9) 

£60 (incl. VAT) per classroom

Merry Mathsmas is an interactive, virtual show/workshop for Key Stage 3 students to celebrate and explore the maths of the festive season.

Join Zoe Griffiths to explore all things mathematical and festive; see how maths can connect to Christmas crackers, use a famous mathematical theorem to make cut-out decorations and play a festive lottery with the chance to win a prize. The show will include the opportunity for students to do a magic trick, play a game and take part in a hands-on activity. There will also be the opportunity to vote in online polls.


Accessing the show

The students will watch the show by their teacher logging in to our zoom call and projecting to students. The zoom call will only be able to be accessed via the zoom app (zoom desktop client or mobile app), not the web browser/client. The zoom desktop client can be downloaded here:

The show is not being recorded so can only be viewed at the times listed above.

One £60 ticket will entitle a school to have one device logged into the zoom call. Therefore this will enable you to project the show to one classroom of students only. We will post printed card resources for the talk and for students to take home. We will provide enough for each student, up to a maximum of 40 students per classroom ticket.


The show content will last for 1 hour starting promptly at 1:50pm and lasting until 2:50pm. This doesn't allow time for students to arrive/be registered/be given out the posted materials. We advise students are seated and ready for the start of the talk by 1.45pm. The posted materials will be needed from the very start of the talk. Puzzles will be projected from 1.30pm to keep students busy whilst waiting.

We will be admitting teachers to the call from 1pm, and advise you join the call by 1.30pm in case you experience any problems accessing the call. We will not need to interact with you at this point so you can join the call whilst teaching/at lunchtime.


Students will need to have a pair of scissors and a pen/pencil. There will also be the opportunity to vote in online polls - if students have a device we advise they are allowed to use it so they can vote individually. As an alternative, the teacher can vote.
