French Students Visit AVA

A group of 6th Form students from Carriat High school in Bourg en Bresse, France visited The Aylesbury Vale Academy on Thursday 27th February 2014 to take part in a Maths day and improve their English. 

A group of 6th Form students from Carriat High school in Bourg en Bresse, France visited The Aylesbury Vale Academy on Thursday 27th February 2014 to take part in a Maths day and improve their English. The students were staying in England for a Maths based trip entitled “Maths is Everywhere” where they visited the Science Museum, Saint Paul’s Cathedral and the Tate Modern in London, King’s College and Whipple Museum in Cambridge and finally Bletchley Park. During their day at the Academy the students participated in a number of activities such as problem solving group activities with Year 11; teaching and supporting younger students and finally completing a Maths investigation with our Gifted and Talented students in Year 10. The day was a resounding success and we hope to now repeat the Maths day in other subject areas. Here are some comments from the French students:
