Christ’s Hospital Maths Challenge

On Thursday 28th February, four children from Year 4 were lucky enough to visit Christ’s Hospital for a Maths challenge day.

The Challenge itself, was indeed quite a challenge! The children were split into pairs at the start and stayed in pairs for the whole of the Challenge. The rounds included:

  • Moving tangrams around to match a particular shape
  • Positioning dominoes so that they completed a pattern
  • A simple code-breaking type exercise, which involved working out values associated with different letters and then adding them up (it was framed as a shopping list challenge)
  • Using +,-, x and divide to make a set of numbers add up to a total of 24. (I think they found this quite tough to complete in the time limit).

Many thanks to the parents who drove their children to the event.
