Royal Institution Maths masterclasses begin

Last Tuesday we welcomed 27 year 5 students from across our cluster to St Gabriel’s College for the first of our 6 session series of Royal Institution Master Classes. This master class was led by Ben Dornan from the Royal Institution and focussed on the children learning and doing practical activities on digital computing and how to write in Binary.The children were set lots of binary code challenges, including some to take back to school. Looking forward to our next session after half term, when the children shall explore Special Number. Our thanks to Royal Institution for providing exciting and detailed resources, as well as speakers, for our series.
