On Friday 5th December, Newquay Tretherras took part in the nationwide maths fundraising event ‘Number Day’.
Victoria Pitcher, a representative from The Happy Puzzle Company, led Maths puzzle workshops where teams of Year 8 students had to use their Maths and logic skills to collaboratively solve challenges.
Victoria commented, “The students were brilliant, they were very enthusiastic and threw themselves into all the challenges that they were presented with.”
A Maths competition was also run throughout the week and a collection box was put out to raise money for the NSPCC, organisers of the event.
Teacher, Mrs Joanna Band said, “As a department, we used this day to raise the profile of numeracy across the curriculum and hopefully make more of our students realise how enjoyable Maths can be.”
