On Friday 25th April two teams of year 5 children from Barnby Road Academy took part in the annual 'Magnus Year 5 Maths Challenge'. All year 5 children had taken part in several team challenges within school led by Stacey Atkins from the Magnus Academy. All of our teams scored really highly and the two highest scoring were chosen to go to the Magnus for a final afternoon of challenges.
After several tense rounds of team maths problems and 'first to the buzzer' activities we won both first and second places and were awarded the trophy and prizes of scientific calculators. Well done to both teams! We have such great maths brains here at Barnby Road.
Winning team: Louis Ketley, Caitlin McDavid, AJ Young, Callum Mumby
Second place to: Thomas Linford, Sophie Lamont, Brooke Woolley, Archie Nesbitt
