Magical maths workshops

SCHOOL pupils across Weston enjoyed a week of maths based activities to coincide with Pi Day yesterday (Weds).

Youngsters enjoyed a mathematical magic workshop where they witnessed seemingly impossible tricks before discovering how they were done using arithmetical logic.

Pupils at Hans Price Academy, Priory Community School, Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College and Worle Community School enjoyed a range of maths events to tie in with Pi Day throughout the week.

But this week is also National Science and Engineering Week.

Priory Community School pupils showed off their Stem Cast award, a prize given out to the pupils who could create the best video explaining a scientific concept.
