Fourteen of our Year Six pupils sat their first Maths Foundation GCSE paper this morning at Hulme Grammar. This is an optional examination we offer for our most advanced mathematicians. In previous years, almost all of our pupils entered have achieved a “C” or above; this year there is a new Foundation GCSE, where the top grade available is a “5”. (“4” represents the old grade C).
They all seemed to cope well with the morning; I am very proud of them for having the character as well as the aptitude to take on this challenge.
Children had to fit the numbers into the grid by first deciding upon the column and row headings. Well done Leena, Brogan, Grace and Daniel who completed first, closely followed by Melody, Amy and Lucy.
So who can tell me what a prime or triangular number is?
