Year 9 students experienced two sides to enrichment day on Wednesday, half the day was spent strategically thinking with the Maths team and the other half was spent researching and then playing American Sports with the PE Team.

The Maths team had a number of challenges ready for the students to tackle, ranging from building newspaper towers and making sturdy paper structures to solving different riddles and problems which all tested their team building skills and logical thinking.

Students then spent a session in the ICT suites finding out about rules, players, statistics and history of baseball, basketball and American football before taking to the field to try them out. Performances would have put the pros to shame, with some students thinking that they deserved the big pay cheques that the professional players earn!
