On Friday 14 June, Year 7 had a Maths/Art incursion. We had several puzzles and games to solve in The World of Maths workshop which had a wide range of difficulty. We also drew the Mona Lisa, to scale, in the main quad using chalk, and then we drew the Fibonacci spiral onto it to see the proportions used in the painting. The third activity included taking photos of tiny street art. This included tiny people in different objects such as donuts, leaves and ropes inspired by Slinkachu. Overall it was a fun and interesting day. We learnt a lot about scale and how there is a link between maths and art.
