This week at Cliftonville saw us celebrating some fantastic mathematical accomplishments. Not only were there examples of wonderful maths going on throughout the school by groups and individuals in the classrooms, but we also entered some very challenging competitions. Our 'Young mathematician of the year team' competed against St Faiths School in Ash for a place in the competition finals at Cambridge University. We do not know the outcome of this round of the competition yet, but we are immensely proud that our team got through to the regional finals - they are winners already.
Some of our year 5 and 6 children entered the 'Primary Maths Challenge' this week. They had to answer 25 very challenging questions in just 45 minutes. We had three Gold winners - Leah Reagan year 6, Amy Joseph year 6 and Oscar Dobson year 5. Pictured are all the bronze, silver and gold winners, but everyone who entered did brilliantly. The questions were really difficult and no one gave up. It was a fantastic example of the children living out our school values, aspiring high, being resilient, showing respect and enjoying learning.
