Oak-Tree Maths Challenge 2023

The first Group event of the year was a huge success! Yesterday afternoon, select pupils from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 from all four schools in the Oak-Tree Group came together at Braeside School for a competitive Maths Challenge. After settling in and enjoying a few refreshments, it was time for the tournament to start. Year 3 kicked off the proceedings, with three pupils representing their school. They only had a few minutes to complete a mental maths challenge, before clearing the stage to make room for Year 4. Once all of the year groups had their turn, the judges set about marking the papers.

It was then time for the second stage of the challenge. In this round, the children’s teamwork was put to the test, as they had to work together to complete a series of tricky problems.

After the scores from both stages were added up, it was announced that Coopersale Hall pupils were the overall champions! We can’t wait to hold another Maths Challenge next year.
