Newington Worthy Winners at Senior House Maths
Shortly before half term, the annual Senior House Maths competition took place. Teams of four battled it out in a team maths challenge where not only maths skills are required but strategy as well. Round one was a challenging group round with a set of ten questions to be answered within the time. Next up was the cross number which sees the teams split into two pairs with one pair having the across clues and the other having the down clues. Lastly was the shuttle round, also completed in pairs, where the next question can only be completed with the answer from the first.
It was a hard-fought battle with some excellent performances but with Newington pulling ahead early on, they were impossible to catch and ultimately went on to win the competition. The Boarders placed second and Harestone took third place. Regardless of position, a fun afternoon was had by all – well done to everyone who competed. We would also like to thank Mrs Parker and Dr Kemp for organising and running the competition.Back to all news
