How did your first solo flight go? Here are the puzzles for this week. Instructions are straight forward and a 5-10 minute pre-read will allow you to think about the skills you want to develop in your teams and boost your practice. We'd suggest you start with 'Which Scripts?' and move to 'Cryptarithm' if there is time. For each puzzle, Max, you'll need to print out as many instruction sheets as there are coaches and then one handout per team of 4 players. Mix and split up your teams. You'll now have laminated name tags. Before the teams come to the classroom, put the tags on the relevant desks together with some rough paper and pencils. Don't forget to use your buzzers (one per room) and leave at least 10-15 minutes at the end to allow the winning team to discuss how they did it. Tips on how to get the conversation flowing are on the coaches' instruction sheets. You may want to ask team members to talk about hurdles they encountered and how they overcame them. The other team can ask them about their assumptions and test/question their theory. Bonne Chance! https://drive.google.com/open?id=1HizR-QVNMCIKvujtfTAjMv8tcv-pIRes
We will meet in the dinning hall on Thursday. The afternoon will be split into two parts. The first is a maths relay and the second is the farewell and prize giving. You'll get the instructions you need for the rally on the day. For the prize giving, make sure you bring your comments about each of your children. Don't wing it. They'll notice. See you soon!
