Welbourn's Sir William Robertson Academy hosts Newark primary schools for maths challenge
An academy welcomed year five and six pupils from 11 schools to take part in its Primary Maths Challenge.
The competition at Sir William Robertson Academy, Welbourn, was organised by maths teachers Mrs Thompson-Hayes and Mr Boden.
It included a group round, cross numbers, a speed round, logic, and a relay round.
Each school was represented by a team of four pupils, all of whom did well in what turned out to be a close-fought contest.
Congratulations go to Chuter Ede Primary School who were declared overall winners.
They were closely followed by runners-up the Sir Donald Bailey Academy, Newark.
Third place was awarded to Holy Trinity Catholic Voluntary Academy, also from Newark. Primary schools from Bassingham, Brant Broughton, Caythorpe, Coddington, Winthorpe, Witham St Hughs and Kirkby La Thorpe were also represented.
All participants were presented with certificates and goody bags, and the top three teams each received a trophy and medals.
Mrs Thompson-Hayes said: “Having been unable to host this event for the past two years we were delighted to be able to welcome local schools to the Primary Maths Challenge once again.
“All the teams did a great job and were a real credit to their schools.”
Sir William Robertson Academy offers comprehensive education for 11-18 year olds. It is hosting a summer open evening for prospective pupils on Thursday, June 23, from 6pm to 8.30pm, and an open week (including another open evening) from September 19 to 21.
