Students enjoyed a day of magic and maths when author Kjartan Poskitt came for a visit earlier this month.

 The former stand-up comic and author of the popular Murderous Maths series of books uses magic tricks and illusions to show students that maths isn't boring.

"I love visiting Plymouth," said Kjartan.

"It's a completely unique place and I enjoy coming here and spending time with your students and staff - they're a really nice lot.

"I've had a great reaction today and I hope they've ejoyed my show and had some fun along the way."

As well as performing his show for students in Year 7 and Year 9 during his visit on 11 November 2015 Kjartan stayed to sign books and present the prizes at a special ceremony in the Library.

 "I was thrilled when Kjartan accepted our invitation to talk with our Key Stage 3 students," said librarian Mrs Wrennall.

"His shows are always exciting and motivational - it was a real pleasure to work with the Maths Department to promote Kjartan’s visit.

"They were incredibly creative using Kjartan’s amazing resources in Maths lessons and reminding students how much fun Maths can be.

"Students were literally dancing out of the door after the show."

Year 9 student Corey said the talk was "really good".

"I liked the illusions and he really makes Maths interesting - you almost forget it's Maths."

Year 7 Alex said he would "definitely" recommend Kjartan's show.

"Anyone who has the chance to see him should go - it's good fun."
