Reception - Year 2 Sports Day again proved to be a fantastic morning, not about who came first, not about the winning but simply having an enormous amount of fun and a chance to show off all the skills learnt, over the course of the year. The smiles on every boy's face was testament to this.
On Monday 4th July, the boys in the Lower School took part in our annual Maths Day. Each classroom contained a different activity for the children to enjoy. This included measuring hand spans, weighing the ingredients to make playdough and carrying out various number puzzles on the school laptops. The boys even had a special visit from Jasmine, who was very magical at maths! She carried out a variety of tricks that covered several mathematical concepts. Even the teachers were left feeling amazed!
Congratulations to Thomas R, Arnav A and George W who successfully navigated the Kangaroo round of this year’s UK Junior Maths Challenge. They each received a Certificate of Qualification and a key fob. There were 4,675 scripts marked and the top 25% received a certificate of merit.
