Budding mathematicians come first nationally in global maths challenge

Laura Kearns 30th May, 2021

BUDDING mathematicians from Crackley Hall School came first nationally in a global maths challenge.

Children from the Year 2 class came first in the country in the competition which pitched children against their equivalent year group. They ranked 31st in the world.

Pupils at Crackley Hall joined millions of children across the world in a Live Mathletics challenge, a event which saw schools go head-to-head in maths quizzes.

Children took part online, completing 20 rounds of number-based questions, against children in the same school year, answering as many sums as possible in 60 seconds.

Headteacher Rob Duigan said: “This is a super achievement and I am very proud of the children. Their success in this competition reflects the high standard of teaching and learning here at Crackley Hall.

“Having fun with maths is important to embedding maths skills, we use Mathletics to enhance and embed our pupils’ learning and the children really enjoyed this global challenge.”
