Alde Valley Academy were delighted to host a “Crystal Maze” maths event for Year 5 students from local primary schools last week. Students from Benhall, Coldfair Green, Leiston, Saxmundham, Yoxford and Peasenhall were placed in mixed school groups of four, five or six working well with their possible future peers.
Our Year 8 students welcomed them to the school and superbly guided and encouraged them with the activities, each one leading their own group which were all named after animals from A to Z. Pupils enjoyed a morning of tricky mathematical challenges from around the world collecting a crystal for each challenge completed successfully.
Congratulations to Toby’s winning team the ‘Alligators’ who collected the most crystals and each of them received an original AVA laser cut trophy made in our DT department. A great time was had by all watching and participating and we look forward to our next time hosting ‘The Crystal Maze’.
