Y5 Maths Challenge 

On Thursday 9th May 2024 Ben, Finn, Trevor and Jake from Year 5 visited Cheltenham Ladies College to compete in a Primary Maths Challenge. Our boys scored ahead of 11 other Cheltenham primary schools to take first place - what an amazing achievement! There were 5 tough rounds, including a speed round, logic round and relay round.  All four boys worked exceptionally hard throughout the day, showing genuine determination, enthusiasm and resilience (there were some really difficult questions!).  They were impeccably behaved, worked brilliantly as a team and were a credit to our school. Well done!
