A “Thriller” of a Maths Trip – May 2017

Posted on: 7th, June 2017 in: General,

Students from the Year 9 accelerated GCSE Maths group were given the chance to enrich their mathematical knowledge and develop their problem solving skills with an overnight trip to London.

The trip consisted of visits to the Royal Bank of England, Science Museum and British Museum to complete an array of mathematical challenges and listen to some very engaging talks. Students were able to discover how the Royal Bank of England sets its base rate and how a STEM subject career can have a massive impact on the future of the world. In the British Museum students were split up into small groups to complete mathematical problems involving some famous exhibits which tested out their problem solving skills and ability.

However, no trip to London is complete without a show-stopping evening at a top West-End theatre. The students watched a performance of “Thriller Live!” in London’s Lyric Theatre. The high energy show certainly got the whole audience on their feet dancing. Stokesley’s students certainly showed off their dances moves – luckily none of them were that “Bad” we were told to “Beat It”!

A fantastic trip had by all. Well done Year 9!
