Pupils Achieve Exceptional Maths Results in Primary Mathematics Challenge
Three St Cedd’s School pupils score high marks in Primary Mathematics Challenge 2017-2018.
This year, for the first time, all children in Year 6 at St Cedd’s School entered the challenge and an outstanding six pupils, three boys and three girls, qualified for the bonus round where they had to answer some very challenging problem-solving questions.
All six children in the bonus round, including Anoushka Agrawal, Joyce Duan and Romilly Ireland, scored over half marks with one St Cedd’s School pupil, Alex MacSween, scoring more than 18 marks and qualifying for a Silver award with a very creditable 19 out of 25; something only 600 other children in the country achieved.
Impressively, two other St Cedd’s School pupils, Thomas Summers and Fraser Rees, were also among 1,033 children in the country to receive a Bronze award for scoring between 15-17 marks.
“We are incredibly proud of the level reached by all children who entered the Primary Maths Challenge this year and particularly those who received national recognition in the Bonus Round. Problem solving and flexible thinking is a key part of mathematics learning at St Cedd’s School in every age group and these results are a tribute to the progress that our children are making in developing these key life skills,” says Mr M Clarke, Deputy Head and Year 6 Mathematics Teacher.
