Mathematics: Not just in the classroom.
Rydal Penrhos School’s Mathematics Year 8 boys set out on an exhilarating five day PGL enrichment camp to Winmarleigh Hall on the 9th of May being active outdoor as well as indoor, taking part in exciting activities such as Abseiling, Fencing, Zip wire pole, Archery, team challenges, Quad biking and Orienteering. They also had Maths sessions involving these activities including using the speed and angles of Abseiling to find heights of the towers and finding out their sectioned speeds at quad biking. Evening activities incorporated shelter building, capture the flag (manhunt) and fun flag treasure hunts with questions about countries.
Overall the boys had a triumphant week and had a lot of fun mastering Mathematics puzzles being proactive outside the classroom.
