29 Jun Results of the Maths Week Challenge
Congratulations to everybody who participated in the ‘Times Tables Rockstar London Rocks Competition’ during Maths Week London last week. Maths Week London is all about building children’s confidence, nurturing a love of maths and sparking an interest in a subject that impacts all of our lives, every day. It was fantastic to see so many of our pupils getting involved, both those who are learning from home and those who are currently in school.
London Rocks 2020 ran from 22nd June to 26th June and challenged all classes in London schools to correctly answer as many times tables questions as they could. Pupils dedicated time each day between 2pm and 7pm to answering multiplication and division fact questions, earning a point for each question correctly answered.
The results are now in and it was a valiant effort from our pupils.
