Monkey Mob!

We were treated to a special musical performance at our assembly yesterday from Monkey Mob – Hamish, Fin and Blade! They played an amazing version of the White Stripes’ Seven Nation Army. I’m sure Jack White would be impressed by their talent. Great work, boys!

The Amazing Oliver!

Congratulations to our super KenKen puzzle master, Oliver!

This term in the OC we have been enjoying working on KenKen puzzles (part sudoku, part magic square, part problem solving, totally challenging) as part of our maths homework options.

Last week we found out that KenKen run a challenge twice a term for schools on their blog. We eagerly awaited for the puzzle to be posted at midday and began trying to solve it. The first class to correctly solve the puzzle and email in a screenshot of their work would win a prize pack. We were thrilled to discover that Oliver was the first to correctly solve the challenging puzzle! He will be receiving his prize pack shortly. Well done!
