Local Year Five pupils enjoy Maths Challenge
184 mathematicians from 27 primary schools across Greater Manchester gathered at Stockport Grammar School on the 21st June for the annual Maths Challenge for Year Five children.
The popular challenge, which is split into two sessions, tested the teams’ maths, problem solving and team working skills across three rounds which included the chance to run around the Hallam Hall in a relay race.
The competition, now in its eighth year, is the creation of the Maths department and is designed to inspire and enthuse Year Five pupils to enjoy the subject.
Congratulations go to the podium winners of the morning session, Greenbank Preparatory School who came in first place, with Broadstone Hall Primary School in second and Oldfield Brow in third place.
The afternoon session was a closely fought contest, with only a couple of points between each team, but overall victors were Stamford Park Primary School, with Lum Head Primary School in second and Romiley Primary School in third.
Head of Mathematics, Mr Greig Frankland commented: “The standard of maths displayed at the competition was excellent, it was a pleasure to host so many eager mathematicians who should all be very proud of themselves for representing their schools.”
