Junior Maths Challenge Success 2018
22nd June 2016
Ryvers Pupils in Year 6 have achieved 3 gold, 2 silver and 1 bronze in this year’s UKMT Junior Maths Challenge. Over 260000 pupils from across the UK sat the Junior Maths Challenge with roughly the top 6% receiving a gold certificate, the next 13% silver and the next 21% bronze.
3 of our pupils were then selected to go on and sit a follow on competition – the Junior Mathematical Olympiad.
The Junior Maths Challenge is run by the UK Mathematics Trust and supported by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. It is aimed at those in Years 6,7 and 8 and is sat in schools.

Well done to all pupils who took part. It is superb to see the success of our pupils!
At the beginning of December, the children at Ryvers took part in a Christmas Craft Competition. Each class was given a £50.00 budget to spend on resources. They then spent a week planning and making a variety of Christmas Crafts (with the help of their very creative teachers!) The aim of the competition was to make as much profit as possible at the Craft Fayre.
A huge well done to everyone, but a special mention must go to 6 Azure who were the winning class with a staggering profit of over £100! A big thanks to both the teachers and children in Year 6 who spent the afternoon behind the stalls selling the crafts.
Ryvers took part in 'Anti Bullying Week' from the 16th-20th November. The theme this year was 'make noise about bullying'. All of the children took part in learning activities throughout the week, which included learning about E-safety. On Wednesday, the police paid us a visit and talked to the children about how to 'beat the bullies'.
Mrs Dalgleish worked with some children in Year 6 who wrote their own anti-bullying rap and then performed it in assembly. It culminated in a mufti day. All of the children dressed up in blue clothing and accessories. Below you can see some fantastic anti-bullying messages and logos! Well done everyone!
