Ten teams of gifted mathematicians from local primary schools joined us for our first ever ‘Primary Schools’ Maths Challenge’ on the Friday before half term.

Year 5 pupils from The Colleton, Cookham Dean, Oaklands, Warfield, Westende and Whitegrove primary schools competed in a series of 20 minute maths challenges, taken from the UKMT Primary Team Maths Resources. Certificates were awarded to the winning team in each of the five challenges, plus a certificate of participation for all pupils.

Kevin Hutton, from Oaklands Junior School commented: “Our children thoroughly enjoyed doing something different in maths and for me it was particularly pleasing seeing them work as a team and the way they persevered with some of the longer tasks”.
