Today we celebrated the completion of the Strictly Maths Challenges in a whole school assembly and Councillor Girl Kirk from the local community came in to join us. She commented, ‘I am so proud of you all for having such enthusiasm for maths’, as well as speaking to the children about how maths is vital for their life in the future.
During the assembly, the children eagerly guessed the number of Strictly Maths Challenges that had been returned and were thrilled to find out that 90 children from Year 1 to 6 had achieved this, beating our previous total of 82! This soon increased to a staggering 92 booklets with two last-minute entries from Belinda and Melinda! A special mention should also be given to the enthusiastic mathematicians in Oak Class who brought back 78% of their booklets and for the children shown above who were selected as the ‘Mathematician of the Class’.
Once again we would like to send a big thank you to the parents who continue to support their children with learning at home, as well as those who attended today’s assembly!
