They have selected their partners and will be working with them every week at lunch time. Manipulatives are used to reinforce mathematical concepts before moving onto Pictorial representations and then the Abstract. The club is lead with the support of the maths co-ordinator to ensure that year 4 children are being supported and challenged appropriately.

Count On Us club

Most able mathematicians in years 4 and 5 also attend a lunch time club in Hallfield. The Count On Us club aims to further develop children’s love for mathematics through fun activities whilst challenging them. Hallfield will be taking part in and hosting the Regional Heats for the Count on Us Primary Challenge in April!

Count on Us Challenge is a maths tournament involving over 100 schools from across London. The tournament focuses on shape puzzles, number games and code breaking challenges to help develop children’s confidence, problem-solving skills, and arithmetic abilities. Last year, we came in 15th position out of 100 schools and we are certainly looking forward to doing even better at the tournaments this year!

Noether club

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
