Maths & Science Day
There were screams of excitement all around the school on Monday as the children (and teachers) competed in a whole school rollercoaster challenge!
The challenge was to use their knowledge and understanding of forces and energy combined with mathematical and spatial awareness to create a rollercoaster made from paper. The children worked in pairs/groups to design and make their ideas in a timed challenge. There were some amazing creations and it was fantastic to see everyone in the school working towards the same goal.
Congratulations to the winners in each year group and the overall winners for the school.
