Four children took part in the inter-schools Year 6 maths challenge, held at St Edward's School in Oxford. In total there were 72 teams of children. Each team had to complete a mental maths test, followed by a 'Countdown round' (similar to the T.V. programme!) and finally, The Big Event! This involved each team solving a maths problem. They then, had to race to the markers and wait anxiously to see if their answer was correct, before they could go on and solve another problem.
Both teams did very well. Well done to Richard and Evie who came 19th out of 36 in their group and congratulations to Jack and Holly who came 9th out of 36 in their group.
