Year 4 Maths Challenge

31st January 2018

Four children represented our school in the Year 4 Maths Challenge  held at Saint Faith's school. The challenge was broken up into three sections:

 Mental warm-ups

  • Our two teams were asked to do some quick calculations and solve a few puzzles.

Round Robin Activities

These were 8 minute rounds where questions on different topics were answered;

  • Shopping spree
  • Puzzles with tangrams or dominoes or pentominoe
  • Logic problems

And the Answer is...

Solving problems which involved lateral thinking and having a choice of four answers.

Over 30 schools attended, with 130 children all enjoying the challenges. We came overall 10th. Didn't they do well?
