Junior Maths Assignment 1

With schools across the country now officially closed and people being urged to stay at home, we are aware that you might need a little assistance in helping to pass the time.

Somerset County Cricket Club are here to help!

We have launched Inside Edge to help keep children informed, entertained and engaged, and to help take the strain off parents.

Inside Edge will see us post a number of special features and activities across our digital platforms over the course of the next few weeks.

Activities for children will range from creative writing assignments and cricket based maths activities to colouring and art.


Today, with the help of Chance to Shine, we are bringing you a junior maths assignment.
