FIVE pupils at a Bridlington School are this week completing a world wide maths challenge.

Each year New Pasture Lane School enters its top five mathematicians in to the “World Class Maths” programme.

Last Friday and this week two Year 6 and three Year 5 pupils have been completing a series of computer based assessments and will be compared to others from around the world who undertake the same challenge.

It is designed to challenge and extend their abilities. Having their achievements recognised can also give their self-esteem a boost.

During the tests, which are aimed at the top 10% of ability in schools, the students will need to think creatively and logically, use their skills to solve problems and answer questions on subjects they may not have studied before, work out and respond to unfamiliar information and show how they think through and solve problems.
