On Saturday 12th November, some of our children from Years 5 and 6, competed in the AISG's Maths Olympiad 2016. We took 32 children, who formed 8 teams, and they worked together to solve complex mathematical problems.
The day was all about stretching their thinking skills, and how they could communicate with each other to solve the problems. Not only did they show tremendous effort throughout the day, but we are proud of their Commitment to their teams, showing Responsibility for taking a leading part in each question, and for showing their Integrity for discussing how to improve their mathematical thinking.
At the end of the day, the children very enthusiastic about the experience, and were still displaying their best examples of a Love of Learning. They finished the competition by showing Respect 'British-style' by shaking hands with the organisers and thanking them for their efforts in organising such an amazing day.
The children all performed well against children that were a year older than them, and were a credit to the school. BSG team number 2 from the Year 6 category also scored enough points to earn a medal for their efforts. Well done to all involved, and a big thank you to the parents for getting them there, and the staff (Mr Paul Jones, Dr Chris Chilvers, and Miss Angela Huang) who gave up their day off to enable them to compete. We look forward to returning next year for another challenging event.
