Well done to the Lower 1 pupils who took part in the Primary Mathematics Challenge organised by the Mathematical Association. Two pupils won the gold award, four silver and eight bronze.
Teacher of Lower 1, Matthew Sutterby, said, “A huge well done to everyone who participated. The fun and exciting competition is not just another test in the school year, but promotes problem-solving as a means of helping pupils develop their reasoning skills, solving problems in a variety of different ways. Furthermore, the questions are not heavily reliant on formal mathematical knowledge but can be solved by logical reasoning too. Our pupils achieved a very high standard in Mathematics to be awarded the certificates.”
Oakham’s large Maths department provides a strong foundation of mathematical skills for all its students to help them achieve their potential.
