Making Maths Fun for Primary Pupils
Thursday, 03 October 2013
Bolton School hosted its annual Maths Challenge for local Primary Schools to help get young people involved in Maths in a fun way.
Fifteen Primary School teams took part in the challenges, tackling a series of different mathematic activities. Each team was made up of four to six pupils and they were assisted in the challenges by Bolton School Year 12 boys.
Teams received points for each activity and at the end of the day the winners were SS Osmund and Andrew’s Primary. In second place were Markland Hill and Beaumont School came in third. Winning teams received vouchers and every child received a certificate and a geometry set.
This is the fourth year the event has been held and once again was a huge success, becoming another firmly established community event at the school, alongside the SHINE programme and the Language, Sports, Literacy, 5-a-side Football and Science Festivals which Bolton School run for local Primary Schools.
