Year 6 pupil – Henry Franke top of UKMT Grey Kangaroo Maths Competition
Huge congratulations to Henry Franke in 4A (Year 6) for achieving a Merit Award (the highest award) in the Grey Kangaroo, designed for pupils in Year 9. This is an exceptional achievement for Henry as he was competing against children 3 years above him at school.
A couple of questions from the competition this year to get you thinking at home:
This year there were more than 800 entrants in the Kangaroo Hop race. Exactly 35% of the
entrants were female and there were 252 more males than females. How many entrants were
there in total?
Eric and Eleanor are training on a 720-metre circular track. They run in opposite directions,
each at a constant speed. Eric takes four minutes to complete the full circuit and Eleanor takes
five minutes. How far does Eleanor run between consecutive meetings of the two runners?
