Frogs were metaphorically hopping across the classroom at Melbourn Village College as 30 eager primary school pupils spent the day at the school.

The Year 6 youngsters from seven schools were at Melbourn to experience a Maths Gifted and Talented Day, which focused on how many hops it would take an army of frogs to swap from one side of the class to another.

The students learned how to form algebraic rules and spot patterns through experimentation. Towards the end of the session, they created a web animation to show others how to do it themselves.

Maths teacher Liz Neville said: “I was impressed with all the students and how quickly the spotted the patterns throughout. There were some excellent mathematicians in the group.”

James Richardson, who teaches computing and led the animation section, said: “It is always great to see enthusiastic students engaged in challenging tasks. I’m looking forward to seeing them up at Melbourn next year.”
