Maths Week 2016

Monday 18 April - Friday 22 April

Maths Week 2016 started off with an exciting and enriching trip for the Year 8s to Kidzania.  Students had the opportunity to experience the World of Work in a safe and interactive environment.  Students wrote about their experiences after the trip, some of the work can be viewed below.

Over the course of the week, students took part in activities designed to challenge their thinking and develop their problem-solving skills.  Lots of fun was had and students had the opportunity to practice and consolidate mathematical skills.
