Primary Schools attend “Maths Factor”
On the 16th February 2011, Eighteen pupils from our feeder primary schools of Ysgol Mair, Ysgol Llewelyn, Ysgol Emmanuel, Ysgol Bryn Hedydd and Christchurch County Primary School visited Rhyl High School to see who had the “Maths Factor”.
10 Maths questions involving Magic Squares, Mazes, Camels, Splitting Images and Square Numbers tested the Year 6′s maths abilities. Could they complete the challenges not only precisely but also in under 3 minutes ?
Ably assisted by a team of eager Year 7 timekeepers and scorers from Rhyl High; Mr Ecob, posed the questions.
After 40 minutes, a 3-way-tie was announced, between Ysgol Llewelyn, Ysgol Bryn Hedydd and Ysgol Emmanuel. Ysgol Llewelyn were finally announced the winners, after having answered a cryptic code question in the time of 1 minute and 3 seconds.
The Chairman of Denbighshire County Council, Councillor Meirick Lloyd Davies very kindly donated some appropriate prizes for the Event, and presented the winners with a plaque.
Mrs Jacquie Chan, the primary numeracy advisor for Denbighshire, issued all pupils involved with a certificate.
Councillor Davies commented on how impressed he was with all of the pupils’ teamwork and their mental maths capabilities. Da Iawn !
