Transatlantic maths champs

More than 200 pupils at Great Crosby Catholic Primary School helped Great Britain beat the United States in a transatlantic maths challenge.

A week-long Fai-Tea contest run by learning website saw 865 schools across Britain compete against their counterparts in America, solving maths questions to win points for their school and country.

Great Crosby beat a school from New York during an online series of 24-hour rounds to help steer Team GB to victory by 466 points to 399 points.

The 700-pupil Crosby school was among the highest ranking of the 1,730 schools taking part.

Maths teacher Adrian Cannell, said: “Our boys and girls really rose to the challenge. Manga High is leading the way in games-based learning and our pupils love it – it’s a great way of learning while having fun.”
