Lindfield Maths Competition

Published Feb 9, 2016

There was success all round for Lindfield Primary Academy's budding young mathematicians earlier this month as they took part in the Haywards Heath Primary Maths Challenge. Two teams were entered into the local competition along with 10 other teams from the other local primary schools. The children had to answer a variety of questions in different rounds including a particularly challenging logic task and a range of complicated two step problems. Both teams from Lindfield did fantastically well throughout, however Nathan Weekes, Ella Tingley, Thomas Manchester and Alice Gibson were particularly successful, finishing in 1st place and claiming the winners trophies. Deputy Principal Vanessa Smith, who accompanied the children to the event held at Bolnore Village Primary, said "All the children were fantastic! The questions were extremely tough but our Year 5s & 6s worked really well as a team, supporting each other and persevering throughout; they did us proud!"
