The Value for this term is:

Badgemore Countdown!

Who needs Carol Vorderman when we’ve got Mr Hoskins?

Well done to everyone who took part in the great Badgemore Countdown Times Tables Competition, the finals for which took place during the last two weeks of term.  Years 1 – 3 set the tone as their final was first, and it was a real thriller, with Sequoia and Daintree sharing first place and Amazon and Sherwood sharing third place, despite more than one tie break question!  However, Amazon were the clear winners of the Years 4 – 6 final, with Sequoia second and Daintree third.  The winners collected 100 points for their teams and, with pupils on each team from across the age ranges, they worked well together to make sure everyone was able to have a go.  The audience participated very well when asked – I’m sure we’ll be swamped with applicants for teams when we run the competition again!  Well done everyone, and huge thanks to Mr Hoskins, our quizmaster, for a very testing range of questions – 0.16 divided by 0.4?  Anyone? …
