We have had a fantastic start to the year with the year 4 Maths Challenge, which has now been running for over a decade! We have held five heats, for close to 170 children, across the term for enthusiastic, and indeed talented, young mathematicians in Year 4 from nearly 50 primary schools across Birmingham and the West Midlands.
Working together to complete a crossnumber and compete in a fast-paced relay, the teams compete for bronze, silver and gold medals, with the victors returning in March for a final competition with the winners from the other heats. We have been really impressed with the talent, verve and determination displayed from all those involved.
“The children thoroughly enjoyed taking part in a competitive Maths activity. It was run really well and was very organised. The children won their heat and came back to school really proud of their achievements.” Primary school teacher
