X26 Immersion Week

It’s been a fantastic start in maths for X26 this week! We’ve been working hard to understand how we can work hard, get smart, and be kind in maths whilst at XP.

We also visited Hyde Park Cemetery to learn about the fallen soldiers from WWI. Students asked fantastic questions and were incredibly respectful.

Later on in the week we travelled back in time to 1914. No longer were we students of mathematics, but we were the British Government’s top mathematicians cracking coded messages sent between enemy forces during the war! Everyone in Room 40 (the decoding facility) worked incredibly hard, whilst under a lot of pressure, to decrypt the messages and help the allied forces. It was tough, but we did it!

Well done X26 on such brilliant beginnings. This year will be a good one, I can already tell.
