Count on Us (Primary Maths Challenge)

What is the Count on Us Primary Maths Challenge?
  • The 2018 Count on Us Primary Challenge is a maths tournament for Year 4 and 5 pupils involving over 119 schools from across London. 
  • The tournament focuses on shape puzzles, number games and code breaking challenges to help develop children’s confidence, problem solving skills and arithmetic abilities.  
  • After running activities in school, schools select a team of their top mathematicians to represent them in the Regional Heats. Qualifying teams are then invited to City Hall for the Primary Challenge Semi-Finals in the spring, concluding with the grand finale for the top 15 schools in the summer term.  
  • The grand finale took place in July and we are proud to announce that Baring's team of 3 - Oriya and Ashvini in Y5 and Evan in Y4 came 3rd 
Here is a quote from the count on us website "Our budding mathematicians were on awesome form as they tackled challenges that included 24® Card Game, Tangram shape puzzles, Pentominoes and Codebreaking."
