On the 26th of August our school had a delicious father daughter breakfast with eggs and bacon, juices and the best pastries. On top of all of this food there were sensational beverages such as hot chocolates, coffees and tea served from a cafe van. There was also an amazing photo booth that brought father and daughter together for a magical photo.
Another highlight was some exciting lucky door prizes for both dads and students. The dad’s prize included some beer and a few bottles of wine. For the winner it was definitely worth coming to the breakfast. The student’s prize included a voucher for the most popular shop- SMIGGLE!!
There was also a Father’s Day raffle with the prize being a beautiful hand knitted blanket. The money that was raised went to a school we sponsor in Kenya run by a charity called So they Can.
Maths challenges were next on the agenda. The fathers and their daughters went up to the classroom and did some mathematical thinking as they undertook the following challenge. Design as many houses as you can while following these rules:
1. All the houses are to be made from four cubes.
2. They all have to be different.
3. The same design should not be achieved once rotated on its base.
4. They may be a mirror image of another design.
5. Each house has to have a solid foundation of at least one square.
There was a lot of energy as fathers and girls persisted and trying their best to create as many houses as possible. How many do you think are possible and do you think you know how many shapes there are without twisting the shapes?
