Maths Competition

As ASPIRE we have set up a number of opportunities to get together so that the children get to know one another and compete with each other in a supportive environment. One is the events we hold roughly each term is a maths competition.  Within the school year each school takes it in turns to host the maths competitions.  The children are asked a range of mathematical problems which cover the National Curriculum objectives.  There is a definite focus on fluency skills which are so important so that children can use these skills to problem solve and reason.  Each time we hold a competition we ask children of different abilities to compete against each other.  The winning team take the cup back to their school for that term.  Morley Victoria have been successful at these events on a number of occasions.
