THREE pupils from Tydd St Mary Primary School were chosen to compete in a county maths challenge and came out victorious.

Erika Webb (10), Joshua Ripley (9) and Shaun Ely (10), accompanied by Shaun’s dad, Steve Ely, worked their way through the heats until they reached the final where they had to compete against ten other schools to win.

The questions ranged from picture problem solving and quick response questions to percentages and volume.

Headmistress Sonya Ripley said: “They were incredibly nervous but also incredibly excited and once they had won everyone was very proud of them.”

The school won two packs of maths puzzles and also awarded the pupils medals for their great achievement.

When asked what’s next for Tydd Primary School, Mrs Ripley said: “We are always open to take part in any competitions that we can. We want to be able to give our children the opportunity to excel wherever they can.”
