On Monday 10th October, we took a team of four children from Years 5 and 6 to the Lord Wandsworth College to participate in the Logic Cup. The event is run by the College for Prep schools whose mathematicians are invited to wrestle with logic problems and follow a maths trail around the College campus.
Having completed the initial quiz, Eloise, Taryn, Jonty, and Dimitri went on to partake in the Mathematical Trail. Each team was given a map and the children had to answer mathematical clues which were located around the College and enabled them to move from one position to the next. At the end of the morning, the Newland House team was in top position on the leaderboard! Just However, the final relay competition was extremely challenging, and the team had to relinquish the top spot. Nevertheless, they did extremely well and tied for 3rd place, overall.
Well done to the team who demonstrated great focus and enthusiasm and achieved excellent results.
