Maths Challenge May 2015
On Tuesday 5th May, four Year 5 students went to Milton, to compete in the Cambridgeshire Year 5 Mathematics Challenge, 2015. Ethan Kirby, Lucy Rafferty, Adrian Wood and Arabella Wright all joined in various problem solving challenges, which included both vocabulary rounds and arithmetic rounds. The group were excellent working as individuals and as a team in order to achieve the maximum points that they could. Their performance was amazing and they were cheered on by our school mascot and by Miss Allen, Mrs Sunderland and Mrs Rook, who were so proud when it was announced that we had achieved second place! We were even more proud to hear that the team that beat us did so by only one point. Mrs Crowden, the competition organiser, then came to give us some more news... there is still a possibility of us making the final in Duxford in July as the highest scoring second placed teams are also invited along. We therefore await an email to see if we qualify for the final and will let you know in due course. In the meantime, thank you so much to everyone who supported us and a huge well done to our fantastic mathematicians who worked so hard whilst also having lots of fun with maths. This was the first time that we have entered a team in this county competition and we look forward to competing in it annually for many years to come.
