Key Stage 2 Maths Challenge Winner

Congratulations to the winner of last week's Maths Challenge. Children had to use their imaginations to come up with a story behind the number sentence '215-129=?'. Well done to our Year 3 pupil who won with his creative answer, "A chicken laid 215 eggs. 129 of them hatched. How many eggs does the chicken have now? Answer 86". Great job!

"Maths isn't one of my best subjects but I'm still quite good at it. I felt excited in assembly because I thought I had a chance of winning. I won sweeties. I ate them all myself. I got a certificate with maths pictures all over it. Mum and Dad said, 'Well done!'. Winning the Maths Challenge makes me want to do it more to see if I can win it again."
