Some of our Year 5 and 6 children are enjoying an amazing opportunity and taking part in our Royal Institution Masterclasses. Young mathematicians are challenging themselves and using their mathematical skills and understanding in different contexts to their regular Maths classes.
When asked about their experience of the workshops, Layla and Gracie wrote:
“On Fridays we have been going to the Senior School to do a Maths Masterclass. The first week a man from the Royal Institution showed us different experiments. We had to predict the shortest route between three cities and had to go to the front of the class and draw our predictions on a whiteboard.
“We were then given a bucket of soap solution and two perspex sheets with symbols on, held together with suction cups. We dipped the ‘wafer’ into the water and brought it out slowly to discover where the strands of soap had formed. It was a brilliant afternoon and it was also really cool creating 3D shapes with bubbles!”
