Year 5 Inter-School Maths Competition

On Tuesday 20th February, four keen mathematicians from Year 5, from eleven different Enfield schools joined together for a maths competition. Children from The Raglan, Hazelwood, West Grove, Firs Farm, Highfield, St John and St James, Starksfield, Honilands, Garfield, St Michael at Bowes and of course St Monica’s were challenged to think deeply about maths and use their reasoning skills to solve a variety of problems. They showed great collaboration and team skills as they worked together throughout the afternoon. Congratulations to them all but in particular The Raglan who were overall winners, Hazelwood who came second and West Grove and Firs Farm who were joint third. We were thrilled to welcome such hard working and polite children from all the schools. Thanks also to the staff for bringing them here and our maths leader Mrs Hindle who organised the afternoon for everyone so well!
