Four Year 4 boys, Charlie, Jacob, Jack and Diwen, competed in the Somerhill Maths Challenge against 34 other pairs from over a dozen schools.  For an hour and a half, they concentrated intently upon various mathematical tasks, testing everything from their spacial awareness to speed of mental arithmetic.  All of them performed impressively with Charlie and Jacob finishing joint-first.  It was amazing to see such young boys demonstrating perseverance, resilience and a love of Maths.  Their understanding of each other’s strengths and their co-operation were mature beyond their years.  Thank you to all the Pre-Prep and Junior School staff, who have contributed to the boys’ progress.
