Maths Feast

ON WEDNESDAY 21st February four Year Ten students braved the wet weather and journeyed over to Raynes Park High School to compete in the annual Maths Feast (organised by the AMSP) against schools from the southwest of London.

Over the course of two and a half hours they worked through 4 diverse rounds of questions. They particularly enjoyed the round that was based on TV quiz shows like Only Connect, House of Games and The 1% Club. They have asked us to try to incorporate it into a lesson for Year Ten Soon!

The logic round (named Maths Hatters) was like Marmite to the team: half of them liked it and the other half loathed it! The final round had a more creative flavour, as they had to construct Polyhedra using very specific instructions.

The icing on the cake was when the results were announced. Wilson’s won comprehensively with a score of 97 (out of 100). The second placed team could only manage a score in the eighties! We would like to send our congratulations to the students who took part as they worked brilliantly as a team: Abhinav, Jamie, Egemen and Gautam.

REMINDER

NO TIME LIKE SPRING

As young grass springs on the plain and young leaves clothe early hedgerow trees, please consider donating outgrown items of uniform better suited to the frost-locked winter. Blazers and jumpers can be handed in at the school reception. Used items are available for purchase via Cladish Sports.
