2015 Ark Schools Maths Challenge
On Thursday 22nd January, Brunel hosted the Ark Schools Maths Challenge for Year 3 & 4 pupils. Pupils and staff from twelve other Ark schools in London, Portsmouth, Hastings and Birmingham came to take part in the event. A range of mathematical tasks challenged pupils’ thinking and problem-solving skills. Pupils worked in teams to try and solve the challenges set. There was a calm and purposeful atmosphere throughout and it was a joy to see pupils so engaged in the competition. Hannah, a Year 3 pupil said: “It was great working as a team and I really liked solving the puzzles.” Well done to all who took part with special congratulations to KSA who came first with a total of 63 points.
