Gateshead Maths Challenge!

This is the first time we have entered the ‘U.K.M.T (United Kingdom Math’s Trust) Math’s Challenge,’ an event held at Joseph Swan for the ‘Most Able Mathematicians.’


On Wednesday 18th October afternoon, Mr Gallagher was with a team of four children (two from Y5 and two from Y6) who had to answer a wide range of complicated problem solving questions. The challenge was to see which children could correctly answer the questions first, explaining their methods and reasons why. We were against other Y6 children teams from local primary schools.


The good news is we won! WOW – AMAZING!


The adults, from Joseph Swan Math’s Department and the U.K.M.T, were blown away by the speed with which we solved the problems. All the children and staff here at Brighton Avenue are so proud! Well done!


We can’t wait for the next competition!
