Royal Institution Maths Masterclasses

We are delighted to have started another series of Royal Institution Maths Masterclasses this term, hosted by St Gabriel’s College. We have had bumper numbers of children engaging this term with 35 year 5 children on the register across 7 local primaries. Last week’s master class focussed on Codes and Ciphers, led by Debo Gbakinro, an engineer with Network Rail and former pupil of one of our primaries, St John Divine. Debo led a great session, with children exploring a range of codes and ciphers used in a range of day to day situations. Our next session will be about Maths in the Solar System. Thanks to all the staff in school, and our excellent masterclass leaders for giving this opportunity to the children.
