    Jan 2018 - Interhouse Maths Challenge

    During October we held our Fourth annual Interhouse Maths Challenge with teams of four pupils from each year group and each house competing over 5 hours for the title of Interhouse Maths Champions of 2017-2018. Eighty KS3 and KS4 students took part with 22 sixth form maths pupils supporting the competition on a rolling programme to cover each activity.

    A great day was had by all with eventual winners being Hull on 1380 points (following a 3 year winning streak by Spalden!). Within each house sixth formers also chose an individual prize winner for their outstanding contribution to their teams during the day. Winners were:

    • Boothby – Justyna M Year 9
    • Cockayne - Ajay D Year 7
    • Hull - Rosie B Year 8
    • Spalden - Ben R Year 11

    The day ended with a final practical challenge (origami stacking cubes), all house selected a team of four sixth formers to compete as well. The armada that appeared on the stage was pretty impressive too!!

    We were pleased to be joined by our Chair of Governors for the closing address and the presentation of awards. Mrs H Baker gave an inspirational talk and challenged the students further with a few puzzles of her own. So, we will leave you with her final question:

    “What number less than fifty is also, paradoxically, over fifty?” Good luck.
