Students from across the capital competed in a maths competition.
Children from Normandy Primary School, Bexley, competed in the first ever “Count on Us” London maths final, hosted by mathematician Johnny Ball and charity Mayor’s Fund for London, at City Hall on June 10.
The school were runners up and comprised of 10-year-old pupils Adam Bagshaw, Ellie Bland and Ben Ramsden, who each received a certificate and a medal.
13 schools competed using the 24®game, which involves a pack of cards and four numbers which must be used once to make 24 using basic arithmetic operations of adding, subtracting, dividing and multiplying.
Johnny Ball said: “The 24® game is a great example of how we can engage with children to make Maths fun. Numeracy is one of the most important things we can teach young people today. “
