Quiz Club National Mathematics Area heat - 8.5.19
On the morning of Wednesday 8th May, four budding maths enthusiasts in Year 6 took part in the Quiz Club National Mathematics Area heat. The quiz was made up of 35 questions in total, the first 20 testing their mental arithmetic skills and the final 15 tackling problem solving tasks. The team showed how well their mental arithmetic skills are as they did not drop any points for the first 20 questions, scoring full marks and placing joint first with another school. We started off strong in the problem solving section, however answering tricky multi-step problems in only 60 seconds was a challenge. The children performed brilliantly throughout the area heat and placed 2nd overall out of a total of 10 schools, missing out on first place by only 10 points! This quiz proved how important it was to work collaboratively with your team as well as working quickly to calculate answers. The team were an asset to the school and worked extremely hard in this challenging event. You should all be very proud of yourselves!
