'The AET Maths competition in which we entered teams of Years 5&6 children was a brilliant afternoon with one of the Year 6 Squads winning!! The team were joint first with Ashingdon and now qualify for the County Final in June. The teams had to complete 4 rounds of problem solving activities and it was all about teamwork and collaboration.
The other two squads also did really well too!'
