Junior Mathematical Challenge 2021

Novaschool Sunland International joins the Junior Mathematical Challenge 2021 with Y7 and Y8 students.

Today Monday 26th of April, after being tested here, our 30 best students will represent the school in this competition.

The JMC is a 60-minute, multiple-choice competition aimed at students of British Schools and colleges. Problems are designed to encourage mathematical reasoning, precision of thought and fluency in using basic techniques.

As a charity, UKMT (United Kingdom Mathematics Trust) does not make a profit from entry fees but they invest all the money raised on advancing the education of young people in mathematics.

Taking part to this event is a stimulating and rewarding experience for all students and teachers involved. At the end of the competition the UKMT award the top-scoring 40% of participants with Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates in the ratio 3:2:1.

Besides, they invite around 2000 of the very highest performers to take part in the Junior Olympiad and over 10.000 to take part in the Junior Kangaroo.


Novaschool Sunland Years 3 Mathematics

On Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 23rd of May, Years 3 were working on measuring distances in Mathematics. After doing an exercise in class, changing amounts from centimetres into metres and vice versa, they were then shown how to use a trundle wheel. This a device used to measure long distances in metres.

Then we went out to measure the length and width of the Primary building and after that we made other measurements around the school.

The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the lesson. Well done Years 3!!

World Maths Day

Wednesday, 6th March 2013, students from across Primary went to the ICT suite to participate in a worldwide Maths competition to celebrate World Maths Day. The room was busy throughout the day with students anxiously typing in answers to Maths problems. There was even an I.T. technician on hand to resolve any technical difficulties. Students had a lovely time, and for some, it was a wonderful moment to strengthen their Maths skills and to increase their motivation for the subject. Some students even continued participating in the competition at the end of the school day from home!
