Strandites Shine at Junior Maths Challenge
Just before SATs, some Year 5 and 6 pupils took part in the UKMT Junior Maths Challenge for children aged 13 and under. More than 250,000 pupils from schools across the UK participated this year and everyone takes the same paper regardless of age. The top 6% in the country receive a gold certificate, the next 13% silver and the next 21% bronze. The results are finally in and this year our pupils were awarded 1 gold (Keya), 2 silver (Max M and Harry A) and 8 bronze certificates (Brodie, Cara, Finn D, Klara, Lily V, Marianefeli, Pille and Suzie). Congratulations to everyone who took part - it is an impressive achievement to do so well in a challenge aimed at secondary school pupils.
