Maths proved to be a particular strength for a group of children from St Leonards CE Primary School in Bridgnorth in November – and they’re hoping to their success will multiply as the competition proceeds.
Children from Y5 and Y6 at the Innage Lane school received certificates for completing the first round of a national maths competition – the Primary Maths Challenge. The challenge requires children to think things through, be logical and find ways to solve problems – and pupils also need to read the questions carefully!
Twenty children took part and the winners of the in-school round are pictured. Their scores will go forward to the next stage, with the possibility that some may be selected for the national bonus round.
