Mathematics - Summer 2022
Our Mathematics Masterclasses aim to bring together like-minded Year 5 children (Year 6 in the Autumn Term) from local primary and middle schools to work through a variety of mathematical puzzles in an enjoyable and thought-provoking way.
In Summer Term 2022 we will be holding two identical courses (‘Aragon’ and ‘Popham’) of six sessions. The dates are as follows:
- Saturday 30 April: Code Breakers
- Saturday 7 May: How Computers Count
- Saturday 14 May: How Bookmakers Win
- Saturday 21 May: Maths Team Challenge
Break for Kimbolton School Speech Day (28 May) and Half Term (4 June)
- Saturday 11 June: Maths Assault Course
- Saturday 18 June: The Menger Sponge
Each session runs for one hour with the timings outlined in the table below. The first meeting will start with a short briefing for parents.
|Aragon Course||Popham Course|
|Week(s)||Intro Briefing||Class||Final Presentation||Intro Briefing||Class||Final Presentation|
|2 to 5||0900-1000||1030-1130|
Although each session is independent of the others, we expect children to attend all the Masterclasses in their course. There is no charge, but places are limited and we cannot guarantee a place for every child who applies.
We have written to headteachers of participating schools to invite them to nominate suitable children. The deadline for applications has now passed. We will email all parents/carers by the evening of Tuesday 29 March to inform them of their success or otherwise in obtaining a place. Please check your junk/spam box if you have not heard from us by this date. Our next series after this one will be in Autumn Term 2022 for 2022-23 Year 6 pupils.
We will be holding the same courses in Autumn Term 2022 for 2022-23 Year 6 children. We will write to headteachers in May with further details.
