medals awarded to pupils after
summer's London Olympics was the theme of a whole week of activities
at Highbridge's King Alfred School.
the final days of the summer term, the Year 7 and 8 youngsters
took part in a number of maths-based Olympic events.
youngsters had their mental maths and problem-solving skills challenged
in a variety of events, ranging from archery and weightlifting,
to sprints and a relay.
teacher and Olympic organiser Shaun Pavey told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"All the students have been challenged by showing them that
maths can be used in a variety of ways beyond the classroom. They
have also improved other skills such as working as part of a team."
winning students took part in a 'closing ceremony' when gold medals
and certificates were presented.
Winning students Caitlin O'Hara, Amelia Ashfold, Chloe Pincombe-Baker,
