Over 40 girls from 20 schools in London and the southeast spent the day at Roedean last week for the 'Shape, Ratttle and Roll' Discovery Day.
Taking the Fibionnaci numbers as a starting point, the girls worked together in groups to create and manipulate shapes in different media and scenarios. Many thanks to our Maths, PE and Art departments for creating such an imaginative programme.
Trampolining and gym was such fun, [writes Esmee Ellis] - we played with ribbons and then did some trampolining. We learned to make different shapes like a pike, a straddle and a tuck and then put them together to make own own routine.
In Art, [writes Beth Blakey], we made own pieces of work consisting of coloured triangles and hexagons on a dark background, which impressed my dad so much that he has decided to frame it. In the Maths room we were given squared paper. First we drew circles using a compass and then drew lines through the circles to make interesting shapes.
After lunch we went down the secret tunnel at the bottom of the Roedean grounds, [writes Eleanor Wade]. It wasn’t dark in the tunnel, so Hermione and I counted the steps and there were over one hundred! The tunnel led straight to the beach so we could walk along the undercliff. It was a fabulous day!
