Y5 Maths Challenge

Four of us represented the school in a heat of the Cambridgeshire Y5 Maths Challenge at Papworth School. Of the 9 teams in our heat we managed to finish second and we now go forward to the final in Duxford which has all the heat winners and the best runners up.

The rounds included a memory round which included 2 people who looked at a picture then had to describe it to the other 2 team members. There was an estimation round where we had to approximate the price of some objects, the length of certain items and how many stars there were in a picture. There were also 2 rounds where we had to work together as a team.

It was a great experience and we are now delighted to be going forward to represent Wyton in the final.
