The week began with a range of mathematical challenges targeted for each year group and class.

The children tried to collect as many pennies as they could to go all the way round the quad.  This led to a range of exciting money and distance related problems.

Parents and children had to work together to find reference points on a map.  At each point the teams had to solve a mthematical problem in order to find the location of the next clue.

A huge thank you to all the parents and other family members who supported the children this afternoon.
