Welcome to

Crestwood Park Primary School

Be the best you can be

Hello and welcome to our Crestwood Park Math's challenge page! Each week I will put on some family math's challenges for you to attempt. Sometimes these will be whole school and sometimes for your key stage. Every class across the school can take part with varying degrees of support from family members. Remember to get your parents and brothers and sisters involved and try to do the challenges pratically. 

It would be amazing if you could send me your answers by the Friday morning of the posted week via email. Please send them to- gmorgan@crestwood-p.dudley.sch.uk

I'll then reveal the answers! 

Get solving.

Love Mrs Morgan
