Super Sumdog Success (Dec 2015)

North Lakes have done it again! We have won the Cumbria Sumdog Maths Contest for the 4th time in a row! Elterwater Maths Group rocketed into 1st place, winning the competition for the second time with 609 points and overtaking the leaders – Black Combe Junior School. Rydal Water Maths group took 3rd place with 504 points, Buttermere Maths Group were 6th, Ullswater Maths Group 9th, Windermere Maths Group 11th  and Coniston Maths Group 12th in Cumbria!


It is a fantastic achievement to have all of our classes in the Cumbrian Top 12! Daily winners in the contest included Elterwater, Rydal and Ullswater. The congratulations don’t stop there, as North Lakes also had 23 of the top 50 students in Cumbria!


Each competitor could answer a maximum of 1000 questions each. Robert R (Y5) was 4th in Cumbria, with a tremendous 882 correct, Reon (Y6) 6th with 870 correct and Thomas R (Y5) was 7th, also with 870 correct, and a slightly longer time. 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!
