Pupils of Sgoil an Rubha recently took part in a Western Isles Sumdog Competition. Each pupil had one week to answer 1000 mental maths questions. We got 3rd place in the competition. We were delighted to find that seven out of the top ten pupils in the competition were pupils from Sgoil an Rubha: Liam (P5), Kirsty (P6), Ailsa (GMU7), Sian (P6), Cailean (P5), Danielle (P7) and Nathan (P7). Well done to them and all who took part.
Who was involved?
All the schools in the Western Isles were invited to join the Sumdog Maths Competition. The schools that took part were Sgoil an Rubha, Stornoway Primary, Sgoil Bhreascleit, Eoligarry Primary School, Sir E Scott School and Castlebay School.
This is not our first time entering a Sumdog Competition. On the 13th of September we played against 21 schools from around the country and came 2nd. Also, the following week we played against 47 schools in a UK contest and we gained 3rd place.
What is Sumdog?
Sumdog is a fun-filled, action- packed online website. On Sumdog children can play fun maths games to help get their brains going. You can play against a computer or other people in your class. While we are playing, our teacher can see how well we are doing when she logs into Sumdog. You can even play Sumdog at home on your own computer. The children of Sgoil an Rubha love Sumdog and are always eager to play! Sumdog can be found at www.sumdog.com.
Why do we love Sumdog?
We love 'Sumdog' because of its great games. Our favourites are: Junk Pile, Dress Down, Talent Show and Tower Climber. We get ranks of animals such as brown rat, chimpanzee, narwhal and many more. Thumbs up for 'Sumdog'!!!
