Junior School Primary Maths Challenge

In the week beginning 11 November, 150 Junior School students took part in the Primary Maths Challenge – a national competition consisting of a set of mathematical puzzles, rewarding logical thinking and application of skills in unfamiliar contexts. Some of the questions were head-scratchingly difficult, leading to some rich discussions in subsequent Maths lessons.

Eltham College students achieved unprecedented success, with twenty-one students achieving scores of 20 or more in the 25-question paper. A bonus round takes place in February 2020, and we await confirmation of which students have qualified.
