CHAFYN GROVE - SALISBURY
Year 5 went to Canford and spent the afternoon being enthralled by the magic in numbers. One of Canford's Maths teachers led the session and impressed us by his ability to predict a particularly placed word in a book chosen at random by Tarrick from their library. He then asked the children to think of a domino and do various calculations with the numbers on “their domino.” The children were impressed when he was able to tell them exactly which domino they were thinking of when they told him their final answer. There were other, equally impressive “magic tricks”, which were explained to the children once they had sworn an oath not to reveal how it was done. Much fun was had by all, with some delicious brownies served in the interval.
