Our most able mathematicians in year 6 attend a weekly after school maths club in Westminster Academy. They had to sit an initial preliminary test in the form of a Junior UKMT maths challenge paper in order to qualify for a place in the club. The club is named after Emmy Noether, a mathematician who made huge advances in algebra and theoretical physics! They are currently enjoying applying their mathematical knowledge to solve problems in different contexts!
Here are a few quotes from children attending the club:
- “It is very stimulating, challenging and best of all, it’s fun” – Mustafa
“It’s very exciting, and competing with Year 7s is very challenging, along with other Year 6s.” – Habib
