The 2016 EMC Team Maths Challenge held at Lowestoft Sixth Form College was once again a huge success! The day had lots of fun and interactive mathematical quiz rounds to challenge some of the top ‘mathletes’ from the local primary and secondary schools.
The competition was fierce and the battle for the top spot lasted all the way to the final challenge where all 8 teams were still in with a chance of winning. After a nail biting finale, The Sir John Leman High School (team Omega) were victorious and stole the winners spot with Pakefield (team Alpha) and Ormiston Denes Academy (team Alpha) coming a very close second and third.
A big thank you goes out to Helen Cavill, Adrian Sweetman and Ian McLean for organising the event and also to all the local schools (Sir John Leman High School, Ormiston Denes Academy, Bungay High School, Pakefield High School, Albert Pye Primary, Roman Hill Primary, Bungay Primary, Somerleyton Primary, Pakefield Primary) for taking part and making the day such a fantastic event. ...

The ‘Design, Create, Innovate’ conference we hosted last Wednesday saw gifted and talented Year 9 pupils from seven local high schools come together to work on three challenges: logistical, kinaesthetic and technological.
They pooled their creative ideas to build bridges, design new technologies and transport books to remote third world counties, coming up with an impressive array of innovative solutions. Points were awarded for communication skills, creativity, teamwork and originality and several schools won team prizes. However, the overall school winner by just two points was Ormiston Venture Academy and Cliff Park Academy.
Judith Masters, Director of Teaching and Learning at L6FC, who organised the conference, said; “Without doubt, all of the pupils demonstrated resourcefulness, inventiveness and imagination in their approaches to the challenges. They worked well under pressure to come up with a finished product and showed excellent communication skills in describing how they produced some remarkable results.” ... See MoreSee Less
