Maths Morning – 5th July 2018

On Thursday 5th July 2018, four pupils from King’s Lodge had an amazing experience going to Sheldon School to take part in a Maths Challenge.  They had an extraordinary time solving problems with pupils from other schools.  They worked really hard and found success.

“I had a very exciting time at Sheldon.  My team won with 195 points so we got a medal!” said Ben R. in Year 3.

“The problems were difficult but we persevered,” said Lexi, Year 3.

“I really enjoyed this experience at Sheldon School and we all did very well,” said Nicholas, Year 5.

“I had a very nice morning at Sheldon.  I was very happy when I got twenty out of twenty in a very difficult problem but I really enjoyed it,” Lucia R, Year 5.

“I was really proud to be with the King’s Lodge team.  They showed good perseverance and resilience,” said Mrs Jones.

Maths Times Table Challenge 2018

Times Table Competition Results

The Times Table Challenge was a great success. We played maths versions of Donkey and Splat using maths facts knowledge to make progress. The children were amazing and impressed me with their quick recall of knowledge and, in the higher years, being able to quickly use the facts they know to work out related questions.

100 children took part to show off their maths knowledge. All the children who took part earned points for their house and the totals were 174 for Bradbury; 334 for Colborne; 242 for Goldney; and 310 for Hawkins.

Our runners-up were Lucas (Cherry), Blaise (Larch), Ben (Hornbeam), Daisy (Hornbeam), Megan (Pine) and Lucy (Willow). Our Winners were Ethan (Beech), Bertie (Larch), Alfie (Birch), Robert (Oak), Jamie (Pine) and Kris (Willow). Congratulations to everyone who took part.
