Budding Einsteins thrive in Clevedon maths challenge


Children from Clevedon and Tickenham took part in a maths challenge.

Forty students from All Saints, Tickenham, St Nicholas' Chantry, Yeo Moor and Mary Elton primary schools tackled a series of puzzles designed to test their mathematical and problem-solving skills.

They worked in small teams to represent their schools, which are all part of the Clevedon Learning Trust.

The winning teams were Tickenham A Team year five and Tickenham B Team year six.

Rebecca Underwood, a teacher from Tickenham Primary School, said: "The children thoroughly enjoyed their time and were buzzing with enthusiasm on their return to school.

"The variety of mathematical activities available were really fun and challenged the children perfectly."

Mark Nelson, event organiser, said: "As a trust we cater for a wide range of pupil interests."
