Well done to our fantastic quiz teams and Year 5 Maths Challenge Squad. The Year 5 team won the regional maths challenge event (finishing top out of 22 participating schools!) This is an outstanding achievement. Max, Adam, Robbie and Ollie were competing against some large three-form entry schools with ninety plus children to choose from, but worked superbly as a team and deservedly won a prestigious place in the national final.
Following their success in the regional heats, our national quiz team once again performed superbly in their national semi-finals (held in Willesden, London) and came third overall, finishing strongly and making up ground on the eventual winners. Congratulations to Graciela, Max, Felicity and Oliver… we’re proud of you!
Our Year 5 Science quiz teams were also outstanding, coming second and fourth respectively in their district heat at Garden Fields school. Congratulations to Zachary, Ryan, Max, Leo, Abi, Kyle, Sandy and Alex, you were an absolute credit to the school.Thanks also to Mr Newton for his fantastic support with our quiz teams and the Year 5 maths challenge team.
