Year 5 Maths Challenge

On Monday 19th January, a team of Year 5 girls attended a Maths Challenge at Portsmouth Grammar School. Mia, Olivia, Rhea and Eleanor were accompanied by Mrs Allen and Mrs Hodge to take part in a challenge event involving 28 Year 5 teams from schools all over Hampshire. Working in pairs, they had to race against the clock to complete a series of challenges involving dominoes, tangrams, timetables, logic and number puzzles. Both pairs did really well, helping each other and stretching their thinking. At the end of the afternoon they enjoyed some refreshments and were pleased to find that they were safely placed in the top half of all the entries.
