Bishop’s team secure a place in the final
On Tuesday 10th March, Bishop’s Hatfield Girls’ School hosted the local Year 7 Maths Challenge Heat. There were 9 teams, 3 from Bishop’s, 2 from Stanborough, 1 from The Ridgway, 2 from Townsend and 1 from Katherine Warington. Most of the Bishop’s competitors have been attending the Maths Team Challenge Enrichment club since September 2019, so were well prepared for the types of challenging questions. The pupils used their time before the start of the competition to practise their estimating skills.
There were 4 rounds, 2 general maths questions, 1 estimation round and 1 memory round. Team C came 2nd and team A came 3rd, narrowly beaten by a team from Townsend. Team C have definitely qualified for the final on Thursday 26th March and we need to wait for the other heats to find out if team A qualify as one of the highest finishers.
A few quotes from the competitors: “I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to any new Year 7s!” “I loved working as a team and competing with others” “It was a great team building exercise and coming 2nd was just a bonus”
Well done to all the teams, it was great to have so many enthusiastic Year 7s!
