Year 5 Guildhall Challenge Day 

Year 5 Guildhall Challenge Day 

Our Year 5 Maths team accepted the invitation from Christ’s Hospital to take part in an exciting mathematics challenge in The Guildhall, City of London. 

The head of mathematics hosted the event on behalf of Christ’s Hospital and it was the most prestigious location the children had been to! 

The young mathematicians participated in different mathematical tasks gaining points as they went along. Although it was very competitive and difficult, it was also really fun! 

Samples of activities can be found in the presentation.  At each of the stations the young mathematicians could be solving puzzles using calculators, pentominoes, playing cards, tangrams, dominoes. The final round had all the young mathematicians together where they are tasked with lateral thinking questions.

It was a very special day for all involved!
