School Report 27th March

This week's report describes the amazing efforts that all the staff and children at Audlem St James' Primary School are making to ensure that school work and the childerns' education continues as far as possible.

The full report can be read by clicking on the link below the picture.

The final message is

Take care and look after each other and ensure that we keep on talking and communicating to people that might not
be able to get out. It's good to talk.

We thought it would be interesting for our readers to see the challenge that Mr Perry has set for the children this week — this is the sort of thing our children and grandchildren take in their stride.

Mr Perry's maths challenge of the week

This challenge is all based around factors. A factor is a number that will divide into a larger number without leaving any remainder.
Example: The factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 12.
The number 6 is a very special number because if you add it's factors together (apart from 6) it equals 6:
The factors of 6 are 1, 2, 3, 6 and 1+2+3 = 6.
6 is an example of a PERFECT NUMBER

Challenge 1: There is 1 other number that is less than 100 that is a perfect number. Can you find it?
Challenge 2: If you want a really hard challenge there is one other number that is bigger than 100 but smaller than 500 that is a perfect number. See if you can find that one.

And don't just google it!
