SJS Team Triumphant at Peterborough Maths Challenge
Over the summer holidays, a team from Stamford Junior School won the Peterborough Area Primary Schools’ Maths Challenge. The SJS team comprised two Year 5 pupils, Hannah Burns and Charlie James, and two Year 6 pupils, Hal Parkes and Charles Smith. The team played extremely well together and were the winners of the 33 schools involved, beating stiff competition.
The King’s School Primary Maths Challenge is an annual event held in the summer term for schools within the Peterborough area and provides an opportunity for enthusiastic mathematicians to compete in a variety of rounds, including speed and logic rounds, and culminates in a relay. The children won a shield, trophy and maths games for their school, as well as individual maths puzzles.
After winning, the team commented “We knew we were close but the top three places kept changing throughout the day. We are extremely happy to have won in the end.”
