Cardiff and Vale Maths Challenge Finals
9:52am Thursday 26th June 2014 in News
COLCOT Primary School hosted the first Cardiff and Vale Maths Challenge Finals on Monday June 9.
Four teams consisting of pupils from four Barry primary schools - Colcot, Gladstone, Barry Island and Romilly Primary had met previously in the year for the first rounds of competitions and the top two teams faced two teams from Cardiff schools - Coryton, Willowbrook, Baden Powell and Glan Yr Afon Primaries. The questions set by Mr Mark Ellis, deputy head teacher of Colcot Primary School were extremely challenging and the children all did a fabulous job working together to find the solutions. The afternoon was a perfect opportunity for the pupils to work together and to compete against each other in an enjoyable way. The countdown round proved to be a lot of fun and the children managed to complete the problems very quickly, even before the countdown clock had finished. The afternoon was also a great opportunity for staff from the eight schools to work together and share ideas. The members of the winning team each received a trophy and all contestants had a certificate as recognition for their hard work.
