Hertfordshire pupils are maths wizards!
TWO pupils from one village school played the numbers game – and ended up going for gold!
Eleven-year-olds Jack Henderson and Max Rose, who both attend Codicote Primary School, were awarded gold medals in the national Primary Maths Challenge.
The event, run by The Mathematical Association, saw some 86,590 pupils from 2,425 schools in the UK take part this year.
Just over 1,000 children who scored 22 or more (out of 25) in the original challenge in November were invited back to take part in a bonus round.
And of those, a total of just 30 gold medals were awarded to pupils who achieved a mark of 24 or 25 – making Codicote’s double triumph even more exceptional.
