HCH hosts UKMT primary maths challenge

Hampton Court House held its third annual Primary Mathematics Competition yesterday, following the rules of the UKMT Primary Team Challenge. Seven teams, with four year 6 students in each team, took part in a range of tasks and activities to accumulate points for their school throughout the day. The tasks were designed to put the teams’ mathematics skills to the test but also encouraged the students to cooperate with one another in shuttle rounds and relays. The now renowned and fiendishly tricky crossnumber round proved to be a stumbling block for some, while other teams found the last round of the day, the team relay, to be the trickiest of all. The most important thing was that all the teams thoroughly enjoyed rising to the challenge and some friendly competition while also getting to make some new friends from other schools along the way.

Why not have a go at the crossnumber puzzle with your family and friends this weekend?
