Gad’s pupils enjoy puzzling maths lesson

Our Seniors and older Juniors were challenged to solve mathematical quizzes and number conundrum at a maths puzzle day.

Working in teams, in the school hall, the peers took part in the event run by the maths department and Happy Puzzle Company.

The aim of the hour-long sessions was to enhance thinking skills, grow resilience in the pupils, allow them the opportunity to work effectively as a team and boost their confidence about what they can achieve.

Head of Maths, Mr Richard Harris said:  “Pupils were motivated and determined to solve each puzzle presented to them, and it was great to witness those enthusiastic and relieved faces, and cheers, when they managed to solve a problem.”
