With protractors at the ready, young mathematicians from three primary schools took part in a maths competition supported by the mayor’s fund for London last week.
Competing in teams of three at Broadford Primary School in Faringdon Avenue, Harold Hill, pupils had to use their mental and teamwork skills to make the number 24 and other puzzles.
Broadford pupil Natalie Towner, 10, explained how much she enjoyed the “Count on Us” event.
“I loved the tangrams,” she said. “The patterns are really simple, but when you have only got a shadow to work with, putting the pieces in the right place is really tricky.”
The event, involving Harold Hill schools Mead Primary in Amersham Road and Pyrgo Priory Primary in Settle Road, consisted of three rounds of two group games and one individual.

Assistant headteacher Georgina Barron said the pupils had done themselves proud.
“Seeing the pupils relishing the challenges was fantastic,” she said. “All of them played the games with a very competitive but friendly attitude. “This has been a perfect rehearsal for the final in London which comes next term.”
