Academy Inter-School Maths Challenge
On Wednesday 30th January, The Village Academy celebrated Maths Week with an inter-school maths challenge, the first of its kind. The six super teams, one from each school in the Academy, competed in Big Maths, mental maths, a deeper thinking activity called 'Joints' and a maths relay, which was great fun!
The teams gave it their all and tried their hardest at all the different activities. Petham took home the trophy on this occasion, but all schools look forward to next year's competition - watch out Petham! All children received a certificate of participation and a special maths pencil - Well done to you all and a big thank you to Mrs Deysel (Executive Head for Petham & Dymchurch) for organising the event. Look out for details of future VA inter-house events.
