An intrepid team of Year 5 mathematicians triumphed at The Merchiston Castle School, Edinburgh Maths Day today.
They spent the morning working on puzzles and after a delicious lunch, then took part in a relay competition answering as many questions as they could. After a very interesting talk by Professor Mc Bride, we heard that we had come first out of 32 teams! Fettes B came third with 656 points, George Watson’s B came second with 790 points but Cargilfield were far in the lead with an impressive total score of 880 points!
Very well done to the team of Patrick, Daniel, Natasha and Joseph and thank you to Merchiston for hosting a day that was so much fun!
