Computing Challenge Success
Just after half term, the School took part in the National Computing challenge, Bebras for Years 2 and above. Over a quarter of a million pupils enter this competition annually. Up to Year 5, the pupils compete in teams of either two or three pupils. Notable successes included the Year 2 team of Ben H & Tabitha H-S scoring 113 in the Years 2 & 3 competition. This was the highest score in Lincolnshire and only 6 less than the highest national score. Equally in Year 5, the team of Huxley S, Henry J and Dan G scored 121 in the Years 4 & 5 competition, again the highest score in Lincolnshire.
In Years 6 and above, pupils compete as individuals with the top 10% being invited to take part in a separate competition run by Oxford University in March. This year, after doing extremely well in the Year 6 & 7 competition which 80,000 pupils entered, William B, Eddie E and Annabel S have been invited to take part. We wish them every success.
