Hampton School welcomed young mathematicians from 15 local primary schools to battle it out for the title of Maths Wizard Champion 2021.
Teams of Year Five pupils put their mathematical knowledge to the test, tackling a range of tricky numerical puzzles in a bid to win the coveted trophy. The mathematicians took part in five rounds of problems ranging from the Am I Odd? round to Consecutive Numbers. In the Cross Number round, the young mathematicians were mentored by Upper Sixth Hamptonians and tasked with completing a challenging numerical crossword puzzle. The competition culminated in a final round, in which the pupils had to work together to solve some challenging maths problems.
Congratulations to all those who took part and demonstrated brilliant number crunching skills and team work. The runners up were Ashley C of E Primary School (third) and Latchmere School (second), and in first place, the winners of the Maths Wizard Trophy 2021, were St Mary’s and St Peter’s C of E Primary School. Well done to all our Maths Wizards!
