On a beautiful afternoon, teams from 11 schools took part in the 4th Annual Pinewood Year 5 Maths Challenge.
After warming up with some puzzles, we were straight into the mental arithmetic round. There then followed 6 fun puzzles involving mathstick puzzles, benches, secret symbols and impossible prizes. The teams then took part in the Alpharace, racing against each other to capture the letters on the walls of the sports hall.
Great fun was had by all and it was good to see teams working together incredible well.
Congratulations to the top three teams:
1st Holy Family
It was very close and all teams did extremely well! We look forward to welcoming all the local schools back again next year.
