Maths: Pupils Compete at Year 6 Maths Challenge

Maths Challenge

Can you use the fact that 392 divided by 4 is 98 to calculate 392 divided by 8? On Thursday 26 September four children from Bede's took part in the Year 6 Mathematics Challenge event at Windlesham House and faced many such questions!

The two pairs of children joined another 24 schools to work on calculations in the form of the hit TV programme Countdown, as well as participate in a highly energetic round of problem solving with lots of running.

They had a great deal of fun and, as the host of the event said at the end, the main winner was Mathematics!
