Year 10 Maths Feast
Two teams of Year 10 students were accompanied by Mrs Share and Dr Gale to the Year 10 Maths Feast at John Warner School. There were lots of local schools represented and our teams of Isobel, Zoe, Opeyemi, Maeva, Niharika, Emilia, Lotty and Madeline had a great morning of maths which tested problem-solving and teamwork skills.
There were several rounds requiring different knowledge and strategies for success and we were awarded a certificate for high scoring in all the rounds.
The girls worked together brilliantly and supported each other so well to solve some really challenging problems, requiring great resilience. Well done to them all!
