It all added up for Parkroyal when they won the The King's ‘Primary Schools Mathematics Challenge’ on Wednesday. Parkroyal were among 13 teams from 12 different primary schools from across the Macclesfield area.
The brilliant Year 5 team won the tough three hour challenge thanks to excellent teamwork and collaboration; the pupils took on a series of taxing questions including many that seemed far from child's play: ‘Dolly's age is the reverse number of her aunt Ada's age and is six elevenths of the difference: What are their ages?”
Mrs Tuson accompanied the team, said: “I am so proud of their enthusiasm and team-working. How they employed different strategies to arrive at the right answer and how they collaborated intelligently as a team. The whole school is very proud of them too.”
In second place were Marlborough Primary School and in third place were Alderley Edge Community Primary School. The other teams competing were King's Juniors, Hollinhey, Lower Peover, Ash Grove, Bollinbrook, Marton, Bollngton St. John's and Rainow Community Primary schools.
(Still struggling: The answer is 27 and 72).
