Great Mathematicians

During Mr Wadsworth’s assembly on 25th February 2020, Year 6 Set 1 shared with the whole school their ideas for what qualities great mathematicians have:

  • Curiosity
  • Positive thinking
  • Perseverance
  • Logical approach
  • Taking your time
  • Focussed
  • Good memory
  • A broad knowledge
  • Challenge yourself
  • Be determined
  • Confident to try
  • Creative
  • Questioning
  • Like maths
  •  Be thorough



All the other maths sets in school then voted for the classmate that they think shows these qualities the most. Special certificates were then awarded by their Maths teacher.

Congratulations to all our Great Mathematicians!
