World Education Games

Room 8 will be taking part in the World Education Games next week. This is linked to our mathletics passwords.

Tuesday March 5th is Literacy Day
Wednesday March 6th is Maths Day
Thursday March 7th is Science Day

What is the World Education Games?
The World Education Games is an annual  global online challenge to get all students (4 -18 years of age) excited about learning, and to give the top students in all schools an opportunity to see how they measure up against the best in the world. Free entry allows all students to get involved and celebrate their education with equal opportunities. Split over three days and focussing on literacy, mathematics and science, the World Education Games is a hugely exciting and engaging way to promote learning and education across theworld.

How it works
On each specific day you have to complete 50 (1minute games) against 2 other people the same age as you anywhere in the world. Each time you log on you will be randomly assigned to play against 2/3 people. You have 48 hours to play the 50 minutes so we will do some at school and some at home as part of homework. You get 1 point for each correct answer. If kids don't have computer access at home they can complete at school

For more information have a look at the website. We already went on today to have a practise.
 So log on now and get practicing before next Tuesday! Lets see if we can get in the top 50 classes!
