Week 2: Diploma games:
On Friday 10th March, it was the second week of the year 7 diploma games and this was all about resilience. The 10 forms had to answer all off the 4 maths sheets (which contained a tricky problem) given to them, whoever finished first with all the right answers would win!
The first problem was a grid with missing numbers where every line had to add up to 34 which was already a hard start to the games! 7I were the first to finish this and were onto the second...
The second was the dominoes challenge where you had to line up the dominoes you were given but each row and Colum had to add up to a certain number. This proved to be the hardest of them all which unfortunately added to lots of arguments between teammates.
Then came the third and fourth, another grid and a problem solving question and by this point things were getting tense! All the teams were working their hardest to get first place, all the teams wanted to finish first but even if you were first, would you be right? One child said “It was the final and everyone was panicking, with only minutes left, we still had one more sheet to go and other forms where already finishing, what could we do?” 7F finished first then it was 7I and 7J but who was right?
In joint 1st was: 7J and 7I!!!! Well done!
Because of this, both forms got 31 points and on the leader board it is now 7I with 7C in first place with 47 points and 7J closely following in 2nd with 45! But what will happen next? Who will be the overall champion??? We still have 4 weeks left to go....
