Pupils through to round two of National Maths Challenge

On Wednesday 7th November, pupils in Year 5 participated in the National Young Mathematicians’ Awards challenge organised by Explore Learning. The top five primary school teams and the top five secondary school teams from round two of the competition which takes place on 5th December, will be invited to the Grand Final at the University of Cambridge.

Congratulations to the Elmhurst team who successfully completed round one and good luck in round two.

Read comments from some of the boys about the National Young Mathematicians’ Awards challenge:

"I was really excited to be participating in the National Young Mathematicians' Award, a Maths competition set up by Cambridge University. It was fun to be solving tricky puzzles, especially with a team. The puzzles are set up by Cambridge University and we really collaborated to finish it on time, as well as to the best, helping each other when we were stuck. Ms. Neagu really prepared us for the competition by creating a club. This club helped us work as a team and understand the question or puzzle as a team. I really enjoyed this experience and am very much looking forward to the second round." - Narein

"I really liked this experience because the challenges were very fun and I really enjoyed working together to solve the problems with my team." - Nathan

"I felt excited and challenged. I am looking forward to the next round and hope we will win." - Aiden

"This was a great experience for us and we now have the chance to go to Cambridge if we pass the second round " - Mikaeel
