This week 16 Year 6 pupils were given the opportunity to participate in a first round heat of Quiz Club’s National Mathematics Inter-School Quiz Championship at St. Dominic’s Grammar School in Staffordshire. The children worked collaboratively in four groups of four pupils and competed against teams from other schools. The questions ranged from speedy mental arithmetic calculations to more complex problem solving challenges and involved a wide range of core mathematics skills and concepts. All four Blue Coat teams achieved impressive overall scores with one team winning the heat and being invited to the semi-final.
