There were a record of  92 entries this time in the Years 1&2 and 3&4 Maths Challenge with a total of 53 that were correct and put in the hat for a prize.

There were 46 entries in the Years 5 & 6 Maths Challenge and a lot of children solved the first part of the question correctly. However, only 3 children from Year 5 and one child from Year 6 solved both parts correctly. The answer was 16 chocolates in the box and the box will be a cube.

Well done to everyone.

The winners will receive a certificate and maths pencil
