St David’s HS Maths Challenge
On the 26th of May P7 and P6 went to a maths challenge at St David’s High school and had lots of fun.
We earned lots of points and won three awards: we came third in the ‘Measurement’ poster competition (which we made at school before the event) and came 1st and 2nd in the overall competition. We were really excited to win scientific calculators as prizes! We would also like to say a big well done to St Andrew’s for winning the best school prize.
During the day, we took part in some fantastic active maths challenges as well as problem solving activities, which were lots of fun! The third years gave us scores for how well we completed the activities and sometimes they even helped us to get on the right track with finding the solutions.
After such a successful and enjoyable day, Primary 6 have already said how excited and determined they are about going back next year! We hope that all the other schools had fun and will come back next year too. We would like to say a big thank you to the high school for inviting us to the maths challenge. We had the coolest time ever we also like to say thank you to all the staff and third years for taking time out off class to help all of us. We would also like to say thank you to Miss O’Brien, Miss Gilmore and Sandra for taking time off their time table and looking after us. Primary 6 and Primary 7 also feel that they represented St David’s well by trying their hardest, working really well together and showing manners to other schools and staff at the high school.
