Pupils at St Ives School in Haslemere have been enjoying a three-day Wizard of Oz Themed Maths Festival this week.

 

The festival started with an opening assembly with all the children arriving at school dressed up as their favourite Wizard of Oz character.  Everyone made a huge effort and there were so many variations on the Dorothies, the Lions, the Scarecrows, the Tin Men as well as Wicked Witches of the West!

For the next three days the children were tasked with various maths themed activities from a ruby slippers investigation, to junk modelling, to an inter-house Maths quiz, to learning how to play bridge, to a speed stacking challenge, as well as a baking extravaganza where the children had to design, bake, decorate and design packaging for Wizard of Oz themed biscuits.

The children also brought in their favourite board games for everyone to enjoy and were then set the challenge of creating a new board game which they had to present at a closing assembly.  All the pupils benefitted from three days of full Maths immersion.   

Kay Goldsworthy, Head Teacher at St Ives, said “Our first Maths Festival has been a huge success.  It has allowed us to really bring Maths to life and show the pupils how important it is in our daily lives and not just in the classroom.”

St George's Day Celebrations in Haslemere

Year 6 pupils enjoyed celebrating St George's Day in Haslemere by joining St George, the dragon, the damsel and her handmaiden for a short ceremony at the war memorial.  A wreath of roses was laid for St George's Day and the flag of St George was raised and then lowered to half mast as a sign of respect for those who lost their lives in the Sri Lankan bombings.
