  • Year 5 Maths Challenge (BTS Prachi)

    On Tuesday 9th May a selection of Year 5 children were invited to take part in a maths challenge held at Thorndown school. Our first round was team round 1,  we began at a good pace and kept it up throughout the round. 

    Then the next round started which was the memory round. Two of our members chose to go up and observe the mathematical picture (one at a time). Rhys went up first getting us about 1/4 of the picture done. Then, Daniel went up and gave us some more of this picture . After that, both of them went up to have a look we got more and more of this picture and soon after time was up. 

    After those two rounds we got a break to have biscuits and juice.

    The third round was the estimation round. We got to examine a tooth brush and had to estimate how long it was and the mass of it. Though our mass was a little off we had the best estimation part. We got a map of Cambridgeshire and we had to estimate the length, width and area in kilometres . Then we got onto the next round.

    The next round we struggled with because we only had about 2-3 minutes to solve each of  the six questions but we still got most of them. Though we were rushing a lot ,we made a great effort with this round. We are proud of what we did in the Maths Challenge. Certificates were handed out and each school had one. Westfield earned a certificate for the memory round.

    Thank you to Miss Smith and Mrs Edgley for supporting us while we were there.
