UKMT Primary Maths Challenge
The Maths Department hosted this popular event for Local Primary Schools with UKMT
This popular annual event using UKMT resources took place at Reading Girls’ School on Thursday 11 July. It was attended by ten of our local Primary Schools. The English Martyrs’ Catholic Primary School were the winners last year and so they returned the trophy for this years competition. We had a very enjoyable day with Y5 students being able to discuss and puzzle over some very challenging Maths problems. The tension of the competition was kept right up to the end of the day when we had a tie break situation between The Hill and Whiteknights who ended with equal top scores of 128 points. The outright winner was decided by a head to head tie break question; the final winners were Whiteknights. Our year 10 students who supported throughout the day were a credit to the school and we could not run events like these without them.
