This week Year 5 children took part in a Maths quiz. The children were in teams of four and tackled three challenging rounds. In one round they only had two minutes to find the answers to questions such as ‘ Two squirrels, squirrel A and squirrel B each have a pile of nuts. If squirrel A gave squirrel B 1 nut, both squirrels would have the same number of nuts. If squirrel B gave squirrel A 1 nut, then squirrel A would have twice the number of nuts as squirrel B. How many nuts do the squirrels have in total?’
The children impressed Mrs Gillibrand (who doesn’t usually see them in Maths) with their ability to solve problems and their good thinking skills. Well done Year 5!
