Two Year 8 teams compete against 20 schools in Hertfordshire
On Monday 25th April, 8 of our Year 8 pupils were split into 2 teams to participate in a Maths Team Challenge competition against other secondary schools in Hertfordshire. Just like last year, the event was run online and the pupils competed in 4 rounds; 2 general knowledge rounds, a memory round (where 2 competitors had to draw a poster based off a description given from the other 2 on the team) and an estimation round.
Both teams gave an excellent performance and Team A (The Four Math-keteers) came 5th. Team B (Square Root to Success) came 7th. The year 8 competitors were: Nathalie A, Amelia B, Arabella A and Maahi P in team A. Lilly-Jade T, Em W, Jiya P and Alysha J in team B. Both teams did an excellent job and the Maths department is very proud and impressed with their efforts.
Unfortunately we didn’t make it to the final this year but there’s always next year!
