Children in a classroom at St. Leonard's School, Warlingham, Surrey, using an adding machine and balance. A young boy carefully uses an adding machine while two of his classmates work with weighing scales and weights. Mr James Watson, St. Leonard's headteacher, was in the news at the time for introducing 'New Maths' to the school curriculum. 'New Maths' meant learning through practical activities such as weighing, measuring and counting - as opposed to reciting sums and times tables. Photograph taken by Bob Hope for the Daily Herald newspaper in 1967.
