Pi Day Celebrations

Our third annual Pi Day celebrations at Aldenham saw Years 6 and 7 working together through a series of challenges, using only circular objects to measure straight distances. Healthy competition and accuracy were the order of the day as they used the wondrous properties of pi to help them.

March 14 is recognised across the world as Pi Day, thanks to the resemblance of the date "3/14" to the first three digits of mathematics' most famous constant to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter – approximately 3.14.

Another fun fact – 14 March just so happens to be Albert Einstein's birthday.
