Sumdog Success once more! (June 2016)

A Sumdog triumph! It’s a hat-trick - we have won the Cumbria Sumdog Maths Contest for the 3rd time this year and the 6th time in the history of the competition - in fact North Lakes are yet to be beaten! Elterwater Maths Group shot into 1st place, winning the competition for the fourth time with 589 points.  Rydal Water Maths group took 3rd place again with 473 points (a new class best), Buttermere Maths Group were 4th (227pts – class best), Windermere Maths Group 6th (187pts – class best), Ullswater Maths Group 8th (145pts) and Coniston Maths Group 11th (77pts) in Cumbria!


It is a brilliant achievement to have all of our classes in the Cumbrian Top 20 yet again! Daily winners of the contest included Buttermere, Elterwater and Rydal. The congratulations don’t stop there, as North Lakes also had 35 Y5&6’s and 3 Y3&4’s in the top 50 students in Cumbria – that’s the most we have ever had!


Each competitor could answer a maximum of 1000 questions each. This time Robert R (Y5) was 1st in Cumbria, with an incredible 891 correct, Ben M (Y5) 2nd with 868 correct and Sophie A (Y6) was 3rd with 857 correct.  Congratulations must also go to Layla H who was the top scorer in Y3&4.  Well done to you all!


We are so proud of everyone who has taken part in this competition – each participant received a special Myths and Legends Sumdog outfit for their avatar, and as the winners, Elterwater have won another free 30 pupil subscription for the school!


Children really need to visit Sumdog on a regular basis as it helps to develop and revise their basic Maths and Literacy Skills - it is proven to sharpen our skills and it is great fun. Play games against class mates, other schools and even the world! It is available to all pupils all summer too!


Sumdog is available throughout the Summer Holidays - ask your child to show you today - visit your child's class page where they can log in with their school Username and Password. Remember the School code is: north_5   Have fun!
