A select group of our Y7 students have been participating in Brunts very own ‘Escape Room’. The students worked in teams of 4 or 5 to solve a series of problems, each containing a 3 digit solution, in order to unlock the clues to the final code and escape from the classroom. The problems ranged in levels of complexity, drawing on students’ knowledge of the curriculum as well as requiring a degree of lateral thinking. Students had to work collaboratively to decipher the information they were presented with. Sixty second penalties was added for teams that required additional hints and tips along the way. The winning team consisting of Charlie Birkin, Alivia Peabody, Jessica Powers and Ella Smith escaped in 36:34:36 minutes having accrued a 2 minute penalty.
