Both the Prep and Senior Departments embraced the first ever Maths Week England last week and we had some excellent results from our pupils.
Head of Mathematics at the Senior school, Mr Goodhew and Head of Mathematics, Mr Sowry were delighted with the pupils’ outcomes “Our Langley pupils have really enjoyed the competitive element of the challenges, whilst learning and consolidating in key topics areas.”
Mangahigh Maths continues to be a popular resource at the Prep school yet this is the first time it has been used at the Senior School. “I am grateful to Mr Sowry for suggesting Mangahigh Maths to us. It has been an enormously positive experience for the pupils, and to be involved in such a dynamic National competition has provided an extra level of engagement from the pupils.” Pupils across both sites have been very determined to win points for the competition, even spending extra time in the computer rooms before school and at break times to accrue points. The top four Year 6 and 7 pupils from the Senior School (pictured below) were Thomas Hsia, Jack Lark, Toby Goldsmith (Senior School overall winner), James Goldsmith.
From the Prep School:
Years 3 – 5 took part in a National Sumdog Competition and we had 10 children completing all 1000 questions. Special mention to Thomas S and Coen T who finished 58th and 20th out of over 20000 contestants – what an achievement!
Years 6 – 8 were able to access the Mangahigh Ninja Challenge for the week with Beau K and Thomas T in Year 6 both completing over 200 points to gain a medal.
Years 5 & 6 also took part in the Primary Mathematics Challenge which aims to stretch even the most able of mathematicians. It was great to see many of our Y6 Progress set wanting to take part and they performed really well, Rayyan gaining a bronze certificate. Our Gold certificate winners were Tolly W and Olivia G – excellent performances from both.
