On Friday 18th June a few members of Year 5 went to the Fortismere maths fair, to compete in a Maths competition against other schools in Haringey.

The competition was very tough and some of the projects were amazing and a very high standard. The aim of the competition was to show present and show a display of Maths in context. We took along a presentations about Maths in Art, Maths in Music and Maths about the Number 24.

We were very nervous and didn’t expect to do very well, as this was the first time we had ever entered this sort of competition. Several judges came round to ask questions and listen to the presentations. Whilst they wrote the scores down and we kept our fingers crossed. Eventually the results came in.

It was very close but Francesca, Hugo and Maria’s group came 1st which showed Maths linked to Art. There were artistic drawings about pi, how Fibonacci is important in famous paintings like the Mona Lisa and how to use art and multiplication.

In addition Hugo and Sam won 1st place in the robotics contest led Computing department and older Fortismere (ex Tetherdown) students.

So in the end we did well, very well!!! Thank you to all our teachers who gave us ideas, the parents who came to support us especially improving our presentation skills and to Ms Ashraf for taking and guiding us.
