Gold For Georgina In PMC
The Primary Mathematics Challenge (PMC) is a fun and exciting mathematical challenge aimed at pupils in Years 5 and 6. It is not designed to be just another test in the school year, instead it encourages enthusiasm, boosts confidence in mathematics and shows how questions can be asked in different ways.
The problem-solving it requires is hugely important as a means of helping pupils develop their reasoning skills and helps pupils to think outside the box. The questions asked are not necessarily subjects that have been covered in the curriculum nor are the questions heavily reliant on formal mathematical knowledge, but they can all be solved by logical reasoning.
At Crackley this year we had 19 Junior 6 pupils and 16 Junior 5 pupils take part and were delighted with the results.
Many congratulations to the following pupils who were awarded certificates following the challenge including:
Gold – Georgina
Silver – Isabelle, George, Lily, Jack, Matilda, Theo, Lucas, Kate, Julia and Georgie
The gold and silver winners have had their scores submitted to go through to the next round. Well done to all pupils who took part.
