Yr 5 Maths Challenge took place on Friday 4th April 2014 for the record breaking seventh time here at Cathedral Academy. Because of the success from the previous challenges, we feel it is important to show prospective Yr 5 pupils what the academy has to offer. It was fantastic to see pupils from Flanshaw, St Michaels, Lawfield, Methodist, Mount and Snapethorpe all taking part. This was the first ever we invited 72 students and 30 parents.
The day was full of fun activities where pupils had the opportunity to create 3D shapes using straws, design fun maths posters and see how Technology can be used to enhance Maths skills using Tablets and Nintendo DS.
Round 2 saw all the six feeder schools taking part in first ever Maths darts competition where the Yr 5 pupils had to get to 0 from 301 as quickly as possible with the captains calculating the scores overseen by G&T Yr 8 helpers. It was all to play for in the final round – the maths relay competition with captains having to do special tasks e.g. press ups and commando rolls.
A big congratulation to Flanshaw for winning the competition. We look forward to them defending their title in April 2015. The feedback from the pupils and parents was amazing as some can’t wait to take part again and be part of the academy in the near future.
A big thank you to Yr 8 helpers, Ms Trout, Ms Magyar and Ms Krishnan for helping on the day.
