Accelerated Reader is here! Organised by Mrs Colley you will now read new books in form. As soon as you get into your classroom you will get 15 minutes of reading time before you go to Period 1, as well as encouraging you to read it will also boost your vocabulary and reading age in English lessons. The event will go on until the end of the school year and try and help your reading abilities, after the event the tutor group with the most books read will be able to go on a trip like Alton Towers. Mrs Colley commented: ”The Year 10s are exceeding in this so far whilst many other classes have some catching up to do if they're going to win the prize! I hope you can try harder and win the trip with your tutor group.” If you have finished a book you can go on the Accelerated Reader website in form or your own time and try to complete the quiz set for you.
For more details visit the school website at www.kevi.org.uk or see the interview with Mrs Colley about AR on KEVI TV.

The Intermediate Maths challenge is run by the UK Mathematics Trust and is aimed at those students in years 9, 10 and 11. It is a one hour multiple choice paper that tests students’ ability to solve mathematical problems and challenges. Marks are awarded for correct answers but are deducted for wrong answers so it does encourage students to think rather than to guess.
Students at King Edward VI High School achieved 9 silvers and 7 bronzes in this year’s UKMT Intermediate Maths Challenge. Over 250,000 students from across the UK sat the Challenge with roughly the top 6% receiving a gold certificate, the next 13% silver and then next 21% bronze.
