Crescent Rose To Inaugural Princethorpe College Year 5 Maths Challenge

On Monday 7 October Crescent took part in the inaugural Princethorpe College Year 5 Maths Challenge.  The event was run by Douglas Buchanan of DCBEAGLE Challenges, who specialises in organising exciting and innovative maths activities for primary school aged children.

Crescent took three teams of two to compete against 30 pairs of enthusiastic and very talented mathematicians from 15 local schools, the pupils took part in a series of puzzles against the clock.  In six eight-minute rounds the children tackled Tangram Triangles, Broken Calculators, Domino Jigsaws, Catch The Train, Card Order and Curly’s Cycling Circuits, before finishing with a bonus round of five final mathematics questions.

Ably supported and marked by a team of Princethorpe’s Year 10 pupils, the competition stretched and challenged the children with mathematical activities that required both reasoning skills and mathematical knowledge.

The event was huge fun for all who took part and everyone who participated received a certificate and a special Princethorpe cookie.

Crescent School’s best placed team Crescent 3, Alyssa and Isla came a fantastic 7th overall, Crescent 2 were 14th and Crescent 1 came 29th.

Mrs Forth commented, “It was a great opportunity for all to put their maths skills to the test.   Well done team Crescent, we are proud of how you represented our school.”

Competing for Crescent were Alyssa Barnett, Isla Barrack, Jack Moyney, Isaac Nelson, Jay Patil and Hattie Sarkies.

School Crossing Patrol - Monday 14 October 2019

Warwickshire County Council have advised the following message re the Crossing Patrol on Monday 14 October:

Chris Simpkins, the school crossing patrol on Bawnmore Road, will not be on duty on Monday 14 October.  Chris will try to make it back for the afternoon shift but is not sure whether that will be possible. Therefore it is probably best if we say there won't be a patrol on duty all day. If he is able to get back it will be a bonus.
