As part of Priory’s Gifted & Talented Primary School Programme, we invited Year 5 pupils from our feeder schools to attend a Maths Challenge Day.

Pupils from Whitefield, Cop Lane, St Stephens, Walton Le Dale, New Longton, Longton and Little Hoole Primary Schools worked through three sessions across the day. 

Pupils spent the day with Mr Baker, Mr Raynor and Head of Maths, Mr Kenrick, problem solving in real life contexts, using mental arithmetic and written strategies.

After break, pupils teamed up for challenges using whiteboards to solve fractions, take part in probability experiments and a fraction masterclass, finishing off with a mathematical team relay.

Priory’s Maths Sparks pupils supported the younger pupils throughout their visit - T Grafton, H Patrick, C Prescott, A Davies and J Martin.  Pupils all returned to their primary school clutching well-earned participation certificates.

Priory’s Gifted & Talented Programme continues through the academic year with workshops across the curriculum.  

Anyone wanting to know more about them should contact the Transition Manager, Mrs Farley, email l.farley@priory.lancs.sch.uk
