Students Engage in Maths Drop Down Day

On Friday 24th May, Lower Academy students experienced a drop-down day dedicated entirely to the subject of Maths, a day packed with a variety of engaging and interactive maths-based activities.

Students kicked off the event with a series of quizzes that tested their knowledge and problem-solving skills in a fun and competitive environment. The excitement continued with an escape room activity, where teams of students worked together to solve puzzles and unlock clues.

It has helped to build a positive relationship with maths by allowing for collaboration, creativity, problem solving and highlighting the relevance of maths in everyday life and future careers."
