Year 6 Maths Challenge
Last Thursday we hosted a Year 6 maths challenge where we were joined by other primary schools in the Bourne Education Trust. Six children from Brookwood, Sythwood, Sayes Court and Pyrcroft Grange competed and activities included a ‘crossnumber’ challenge and a speed test where children worked in teams of 2. Questions included: “If 35% of my age is 10.5. How old am I?” and “What is 25% of 30% of 40?” (and these were some of the easier ones!)All of the children showed great dedication and perseverance to solve some very difficult problems. Congratulations to Darya and Rebecca who were the Brookwood winners!
