Pangbourne Maths Challenge

On Tuesday 9th October, four Year 5 boys had the privilege of taking part in a local Maths Challenge at Pangbourne College. In total 12 teams took part in an afternoon of Maths challenges: working in teams to create a tall, strong and stable structure using only newspaper, elastic bands and sellatape; solving tangrams and matchstick puzzles; solving a variety of word problems. After 90 minutes of brain boggling fun and relay running (to give the markers their answers) the boys waited anxiously for the results during the prize giving.

Joseph, Adhrit, Izak and Isaac can be proud of their achievement at this event, they worked well as a team, encouraged each other and produced some fabulous Maths answers under pressure.
