On Thursday 30th November, four children from 6BK were invited to Worcester Royal Grammar School in order to take part in a morning of maths challenges. Fatima, Charlie, Alex and Toby were excited at the prospect of competing against other schools in the Rivers Academy and another Worcester City Primary School.

One activity involved a series of complex mathematical clues that made a cross word. Year 7 pupils from RGS kept a close eye on the proceedings ensuring all children followed the rules, working in pairs.   This calculation tested the fluency of the children’s amazing mathematical brains!

Another activity enabled the whole group to work together, problem solving and using their fantastic reasoning skills. Fatima, Charlie, Alex and Toby worked collaboratively, effectively reasoning and finding the correct outcomes.

At the end of the morning, they were thrilled to learn that Heronswood Primary School had come first out of the other six schools from Rivers Academy and second place in the overall competition.   Certificates were awarded, alongside a goody bag!

Mrs Kingston, who accompanied the children, was thrilled to report how proud everyone at Heronswood was of the four children who represented the school in the competition.  ‘Today, these amazing children demonstrated the outstanding learning attitudes that is typical of our school. They exuded resilience, perseverance and enjoyed the struggle when their thinking was challenged.  Even though the challenges were tough, they smiled and showed determination and grit’.
