24 Tournament Results
Today, Year 5 children spent the morning in a tense mental maths competition at Burntwood School. Only three children were selected from all of Year 5 to represent the school at The Wandsworth 24 Game Tournament; these children were Jacob, Dylan and Dinah.
The 24 Game requires children to use quick mental methods against their opponents. The object of the game is to make the number 24 from the four numbers on a game card. You can add, subtract, multiply and divide. Use all four numbers on the card, but use each number only once. You do not have to use all four operations.
There were 28 schools in two heats this morning; Hillbrook’s team did incredibly well, and faced some stiff competition, but came in the top 3 in their heat to progress to the final. Dinah was awarded the Bronze Prize in the Heat for the 3rd highest individual score!
In the final of seven teams, the rounds became shorter and the competition intensified, however, the team did very well and managed to come 3rd out of 28 schools from Wandsworth.
