Maths Assemblies and World pi day

Categories: Parent's Information

We were all thoroughly impressed with a group of year 7 students who delivered maths assemblies to all year groups last week.
 
The seven presenters were celebrating world maths day which was on Wednesday 06 March. The assembly explained the importance of maths in our everyday lives and taught us about a range of famous mathematicians throughout history.
 
Very well done to Purdey Roberts-Morgan, Jack Hughes, Noah Watkins, Maisie Bettis, Frank Nichol, Richard Otter,
Sadie-Rose Tyler, Amelia Webb, Harry Mondon, Jessica Hedges and Erin Lansiquot.
 
Well done to the following students who managed to memorise and recite pi to the most number of decimal places in celebration of world pi day on Friday 14 March: 
 
Ryan Everitt, year 9 - 52 decimal place
Caitlin Burch, year 8 - 46 decimal places
Megan Harmond, year 7 - 72 decimal places!  
 
Megan managed to say, from memory:
3.14159 26535 89793 23846 26433 83279 50288 41971 69399 37510 58209 74944 59230 78164 06
Which was amazing – very well done Megan!
