We celebrated Naitonal Demo Day within the science department yesterday lunchtime by burning Methane Bubbles! Students got to watch Mr Haigh demonstrate how water is a poor conductor of heat and insulates his hands from the flames! Don't try this at home! https://t.co/b6bNdlVVge

Well done to our students who carried out their first practice expedition on Saturday at Boxhill. They planned their routes and tested their navigation skills. Mr Crossan said, "All did really well and worked together brilliantly as a team." https://t.co/9HXQlSDNhB

Count on Us Maths Challenge

Feedback from Mr Sharpe, Maths Teacher: On Thursday 5 March, 26 students from Year 8 and 9 took part in our school competition for the Count On Us Maths Challenge. They started by tackling a variety of different geometric puzzles which were designed to test their problem solving and logistical skills. All students were very hands on trying to solve puzzles involving mathsticks, counters, cubes and pentominoes, showing determination to solve some very difficult puzzles.
 
 They then competed in a tournament of the game of Hex. This involved the students trying to connect to sides of a grid using counters. It sounds easy, but the students discovered that they had to come up with strategies and tactics to try and win, as certain rules made it a much more difficult game. They applied the skills they had developed in one-on-one games to a full sized board where they themselves were the counters. They soon found it became a much more challenging task when playing the game using people as counters, but everyone showed determination to win and had fun in doing so. The competitiveness between the students was brilliant to see. Their mental maths skills were then tested by playing a game of 24 where they had to think quickly on their feet to try and make 24 using four numbers, including negatives, fractions and decimals, and the mathematical operations. The level of quick thinking from the students was very impressive to see. 
 
Finally, they took part in a code breaking task where they had to perform cipher shifts to discover questions and then solve equations to find the answers. The level of teamwork and determination to win was outstanding, with the students showing that they were very capable mathematicians and brilliant team-players. Five students will be selected to represent the school at the regional heats at the end of April but every student who took part was fantastic. The ones who will be selected will be fantastic ambassadors for the school The Jack Petchey Foundation Count on Us Secondary Challenge with the Mayor’s Fund for London is a unique, pan-London maths tournament for Years 7, 8 and 9 students. By combining a series of mental arithmetic and problem solving tasks, the Secondary Challenge helps pupils become confident mathematicians, developing mathematical fluency and improving problem solving skills.
