Year 8 squeezed into the Drawing Room for the annual Christmaths Challenge. The competition was kicked off with a Science round based on 15 festive questions. We then launched the Maths part of the event which involved answering a number of challenge problems in 30 minutes. The time flew by as teams scrabbled to get the next question and put their heads together to work on each puzzle. Some of the favourite questions can be viewed by clicking here (answers by email to firstname.lastname@example.org ).
The competition was won by Team 8 comprising of Max Owen, Mackenzie Colsell, Flora Fletcher, Alex Ross and Oscar Wray.
It was great to see the whole of Year 8 thoroughly enjoying their Maths and working together so well. My thanks to Mr. Smith, Mrs. Lyon Taylor, Miss Poyntz, Mr. Benbow and Caroline for helping to make the event possible.
