Curwen's Year 4 Maths Big Outcome

One the 27th February 2019, 120 year 4 pupils took to the main hall and participated in a problem solving competition. With the help of their teachers and their parents the children were challenged in various problem solving timed activities, which included trangrams, pentominoes, code breaking and the 24 game. The challenges were hard but the children were prepared for that and knew this would be a real test on their resilience.  

A massive thank to all the Year 4 parents who turned up to cheer their children on and the staff who made this event possible.

The Winners Are...
