Year 3 and 4 Maths Final (June 2018)

The day finally came - the chance to defend our title and the chance to bring the trophy home forever! We were a bit nervous when we got there as there were 10 schools altogether! That meant 9 we had to beat!

Round 1 started with Make 24. A simple game where you have 4 numbers and have to make 24. We were given the numbers 21, 5, 4 and 2. We did it like this:

 2 x 4 = 8

8 - 5 = 3

21 + 3 = 24

Can you find any another ways?

 

Round 2 was called Dice Trains. You made a dice train by using dice to model a train with blue dice for the train and one white die for the funnel.

The number on top of the white dice must equal the total of the tops of the blue dice showing. And all of the dice faces that touch each other must have the same number touching! Trains always contain 4 or 5 dice.

Hint - the opposite sides of a die add up to 7.

 

Round 3 was the Perimeter Challenge. On a 3cm by 3cm grid the perimeter of the square would be 12cm. The challenge was to make as many other shapes with a perimeter of 12cm.

There are 16 shapes you can make in total (including the square) and you are not allowed to simply rotate the shapes.

 

Round 4 was called shape challenge. Each shape has a value between 1 and 9 but no two different shapes can have the same value. The rows and columns all have totals and we had to work out which values fitted with which shapes.

 

The final round was our favourite, “Countdown”. A target number was given along with 6 numbers. It was made harder this year by having to use all of the numbers to make the target number.

For instance, making 127 with

1 2 3 25 50 100

would be 100 + 50 = 150

150 - 25 = 125

125 + 3 = 128

128 - 2 = 126

126 + 1 = 127

Could you make 126 using these numbers:

6 4 10 3 5 25

 

Unfortunately we think Countdown was our undoing this year as we could make the target numbers but we struggled to make them with all of the numbers given.

We came 3rd overall with 83 points. Well done to Manor Way who came 2nd with 85 points and Glynn Primary who came 1st with just 86 points.

 

A big well done to the team for getting through to the final. A massive achievement on its own.

We did really well on the spot prize with Ely guessing the number of giant balls that would fill the hall - the answer was 552 (and Ely guessed 550). He has won a family ticket to go and see Goodnight Mr Tom by the Stourbridge Theatre Company.
