This afternoon, a group of four Year 4 mathematicians represented the school brilliantly at Heat 6 of a mathematics competition held at King Edward’s School. 12 schools were assembled to pick their way through a series of mathematical challenges. In the first round, the children had to work as a team to answer a tricky crossnumber puzzle – a fabulous score of 47/51 was achieved. The second round involved lots of sprinting as well as thinking in a relay to solve maths puzzles.
Overall, Bournville Junior School finished 2nd, a tiny fraction behind St Alphege’s Junior School in Solihull.
The silver medallists.

Finding lots of ways!
