Maths Challenge April 2022

On Tuesday 26th April, Eva, Elizabeth, Matthew and Rupert took part in the first heat of the Year 5 Maths Challenge led by the Cambs Maths Team. Working collaboratively, the team battled through three tricky rounds, sharing their thoughts and ideas, jotting their workings and applying everything they have learned! The children worked together to spot mathematical patterns, explore algebraic formulae and solve multi-step problems that were provided by the Quiz Master, Tom. With time pressures taking over and nerves kicking in, the team were doubtful of their success. However, as they neared the end of the challenge, when Tom was announcing the results and butterflies filled their stomachs, the team were thrilled to realise that they had in fact achieved FIRST PLACE! Everyone at Coton are very proud of their success and wish them the best of luck in the final which is due to take place on Wednesday 6th July! Watch this space for further results…
