The Annual Year 5 Inter-schools Maths Challenge

Last Thursday we were delighted to welcome Year 5 pupils from 12 local schools to take part in our annual Year 5 Maths Challenge, hosted by the inspirational Douglas Buchanan. 

The children worked in teams to solve a range of Maths problems including; tantalising tangrams, make 24, Curly’s cycling and interpreting train timetables. It was wonderful to see the young Mathematicians so enthusiastic, motivated and confident as they pushed through barriers to earn points for their team. 

After a lot of number crunching and a Magical Maths trick from Douglas (we really do all LOVE Maths!) we were delighted to be announced as joint winners. What an end to a memorable morning!
