Maths Week - Treasure Hunt

During Maths Week, each class will receive a Treasure Box, which will be locked with a combination lock. Each class will complete maths challenges which will give them the code to open the treasure box.

Parent and Carers Challenge

On the display in reception is a challenge for parents and carers. You must try and put the class treasure boxes in the correct co-ordinates. Please see the picture example below. The co-ordinates will change each day. So have a go and you might win some treasure!

The Treasure Boxes

The whole school had an assembly on Monday morning to find out about the Treasure Hunt. Each class were given a treasure chest and the students were very excited to find out how they could get inside! They set about finding the first number on their coded padlock.
