Primary Maths Olympics

On Thursday 17th March, Penrice Academy hosted it’s annual Year 6 Maths Olympics Day.

Th day saw local Primary Schools compete in an all-day Maths event for gifted and talented Year 6 students, including a range of activities not only testing the students’ mathematical skills but also their ability to work as a team.

Mrs Johns, Maths Teacher, said: “The day was a real success – not only were the Year 6 students amazing and worked really hard but the Year 10 helpers were fantastic too.  They assisted throughout the day and showed a high level of professionalism; a real credit to Penrice!”

“This year was dominated by Charlestown, achieving 1st and 2nd place!  We look forward to hosting next year and seeing if Charlestown can maintain their title.”


1st Place – Charlestown Team 2 (Sam, Dillion, Raymond and Toby) Year 10 Helper: Lauren Knight

2nd Place – Charlestown Team 1 (Amalie, Max, Seb and Ellie) Year 10 Helper: Natalie Frazer

3rd Place – St Mewan Team 1 (Maizee, Lauren, Joe and Ethan) Year 10 Helper: Tanicha Chapman

Thank you to our Year 10 Supervisors Jack Parr and Abi Tamblyn who helped oversee the day looking after all the teams and Year 10 helpers.
