Three of our bright young number crunchers, Lao Noom, Lauren and Rachel, were invited to take part in a summer camp run by The Grammar School at Leeds (GSAL).
36 pupils from 14 schools attended the three-day camp, which extended their maths knowledge to a level beyond their school year in an interactive way appropriate for the age group. The children, from years 4 and 5, were selected for the camp on the basis of their exceptional ability in maths.
The children spent two days at GSAL Junior School, working together on fun maths games and activities designed to develop their problem-solving skills and teamwork. The third day was spent at the University of Leeds, where the children did a maths-themed campus trail and experienced their first university lecture.
Our girls had a wonderful time and we hope there will be another opportunity next summer for more of our fantastic mathematicians to take part.
