Just before exeat, the 2017 House Times Tables Competition took place.
The children had 5 minutes to answer 100 questions, allowing just 3 seconds per question, so quick, accurate recollection was the key.
Every child’s result goes towards the house total, so thank you to all the families who put in the extra effort to get their children up to speed with their times tables and mental methods. Mr Mortimer was particularly impressed with the small number of Year 2 children that did the challenge.
The Following children achieved the best result in their year (their scores are listed in the brackets):
Year 2 Max G (33)
Year 3 Beth F T (79)
Year 4 James S (95)
Year 5 Harriet M (99)
Year 6 Will H (84)
Year 7 Vladimir P (95)
Year 8 Alex P (100)
Kinder Joshua G (97)
Derwent George W (98)
These children also did well enough to be awarded a times tables badge:
Beth F T (79), Oli G (80), Mungo R (80), Archie C (80), Tom H S (80), Sam B (80), Will D (81), Theo F (81), Miles K (82), Sam C C (82), Will H (84), Ben R (87), Charlie B (87), Melissa R (87), Jack W (87), Seb R (89), Leah H (92), James S (95), Vladimir P (95), Joshua G (97), George W (98), Harriet M (99), Flora K (99), Alex P (100).
Congratulations to Alex in Year 8, who has made a brilliant start to his time at S. Anselm’s by being the only competitor to score a perfect 100 this year.
Alex has won a difficult wooden puzzle and a book of advanced mathematical problems.
