On 1st April, 88 school across London went head to head for a place in the finals of the Count on Us Primary Challenge, a Maths competition involving shape, number and code breaking activities. The games are an annual event run by the Mayor's Fund for London to both encourage and recognise budding mathematicians and raise the profile of Maths among students.
On the day, there were 2 team rounds and an individual round. Normandy Primary School performed brilliantly against stromg competition and won FIRST place and a guaranteed place in the finals which will see our team compete with 14 other schools in London at City Hall. Our team has performed exceptionally well and their hard work and determenation has really paid off.
Normandy has also competed in the Bexley Games and has managed to be awarded one of the top teams and invited to the Civic Chambers to compete against the top schools in Greenwich.
The events were a brilliant experience for all the students at Normandy and a fantastic way to spotlight Maths education in the borough. We are extremely proud of all the children who have contributed to the team's success and are looking forward to our next challenge. Well done team Normandy!
Abigail commented "Monday was the best thing that could have happened to me. We went to City Hall to play 24 Games. I went with Miss Martin and Miss Hutchinson, all of us were nervouse because there were a lot of children. 24 Games has helped me to improve my mental maths skills to become more confident in maths. I never thought we would come this far!"
