On Thursday 21 November, the Mayor of Winchester, along with 160 pupils and parents from 13 schools in Hampshire attended a celebration of the Primary Schools Maths Challenge. The Challenge aims to make pupils think outside the box. The questions asked are not necessarily subjects that have been covered in the curriculum but create a great starting point for further discussion and can often be solved by logical reasoning.
Since June 2019, pupils have attended our mentoring programme at the school, led by Mrs Zampeta in the Maths department to support them in their maths learning. We invite pupils in Year 4, 5 and 6 from all Hampshire state schools who enjoy mathematics and are keen on developing their problem solving skills. In October, fifty pupils sat the Winchester Maths Challenge, which we devised as useful preparation for the national competition. Winchester College hosted the Challenge competition earlier this month, for the second year running, and some of the pupils have now qualified to sit the Bonus round in February.
The celebratory event brought together pupils, parents and their Winchester College mentors for tea, cake and certificates, which were presented by the Mayor.
The school runs a numberof maths clubs and events during term time including:
