Junior Maths: Regional Team Challenge Win!

Junior Maths: Regional Team Challenge Win!

On Tuesday 5 March, the Junior Maths Team comprising Sophie and Mille (Second Year) and Alex and William (Third Year) travelled to Trinity School, to compete in the Regional Team Maths Challenge Competition. I am pleased to announce that Caterham won and will now represent the region in the National Finals, which will take place at the Royal Horticultural Halls, London on Monday 17 June. Over 1600 schools entered the competition and Caterham will be one of only 88 schools that take part in the final.

The pupils had a great time in this unique competition. The first round was a set of 10 questions which the team worked on together. The second round was the cross number round which is like a crossword but with maths clues. Two of the pupils were given the across clues and the other two, the down ones. The third round had sets of four questions on which pupils worked in pairs, needing the solution to the previous question in order to answer the current one. The final round (a relay round), involved pupils answering questions and then racing their solution to the far end of the room where a teacher passed them the next question.

Congratulations to all pupils who took part; you did us proud!
