Year 5 Maths Challenge

On Wednesday 6th February , eight children from Year 5 went to Garden Fields to participate in the Primary Schools’ Year 5 Maths Challenge Competition. The children were divided into two teams. In Team A there was James, Sebi,    Aidan and Leo, whilst Team B included Emily, Bella, Laura and Charlie. The quiz included two general maths rounds, one memory round, and an ‘estimation’ round. Out of 20 teams, the A team came a commendable eighth, whilst the B team came joint second with the Garden Fields A team. It was a great afternoon and, with a very impressive points   total, the Skyswood B now find themselves in the final, qualifying as ‘highest scoring runners-up.’ The final will take place at Robertson House, Stevenage, towards the end of March.
