The Year 7’s at The Royal Harbour Academy were visited by The Problem Solving Company on Monday 31st January. The RHA students had the opportunity to put their maths skills into practice by solving a variety of puzzles, ensuring that they worked collaboratively with their peers
The challenges ranged in difficulty; the more difficult the task, the more points each team would achieve. The competitive element kept the Year 7 students focused on the task in hand. Lily said that “It was great to make us think in a different way, work with our friends to work out fun puzzles.
George, the lead instructor from The Problem Solving Company commented that the pupils' behaviour was exemplary and that all classes were focused on the tasks which created a real buzz and some good learning.
