The Happy Puzzle Company provide a day of fun!
Puzzle Challenge Day
On 11th March, we were delighted to welcome back The Happy Puzzle Company who ran a special puzzle challenge day for all pupils in Years 1 - 6. A wide range of puzzles were solved including road maps, balancing penguins on an iceberg, jigsaws involving repeating patterns and colours, marble runs, learning how to balance twelve large nails onto one nail and reflecting lights off mirrors to change the direction of the beam. All puzzles involved a high degree of co-operation between the team members and, of course, lots of discussion as to which ideas to try. The team work and perseverence displayed by all of the girls when tackling a problem was impressive. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and left with a well deserved sense of achievement.
