A common interest in Rubik’s Cube style puzzles has led to Ely College students competing in a friendly inter-house contest to speed solve the classic toy.

A maths lesson in cubed numbers with Mrs Goodey shed light on a popular hobby shared by a number of students.

She said: “It was lovely to see passion and confidence in students as they shared their hobbies linked to maths and problem solving”.

In their spare time, Year 7 pupil Cameron Lamb and Year 10 pupil Oscar Barter push themselves to speed solve different types of Rubik’s Cubes. Both have competed in national competitions and their teacher was keen to help them share their hobby after they impressed their class mates. Demonstrations have prompted some friendly competition and the possibility of starting a ‘Session 6’ afterschool club.

Session 6 at Ely College extends the school day to 4.15pm for students who wish to stay for after-school activities or additional curriculum assistance.
