Year 5 Wolverhampton Maths Challenge

Yesterday, four of our Year 5 children attended a city maths challenge event at Wolverhampton Girls High School.

The children were split into two teams and had to answer several challenges and were given 8 minutes to solve each problem.

21 schools attended from across Wolverhampton and Walsall with 64 teams competing. I am extremely pleased to share that our children performed fantastically well. One team finishing 13th out of 64 places and the other team finishing 32nd out of the 64 teams.

We were also one of the top performing Catholic schools in the city. The children will receive a certificate during this week’s Praise Assembly to celebrate their wonderful performance.

This just reinforces the fact that we have many talented mathematicians here at SS Peter and Paul.

We hope to send some Year 4 children to a similar competition in the Summer term.
