Sierpinski’s Triangle is a beautiful mathematical object known as a fractal.  Fractals are made up from simple rules but appear to be very complex.

In this masterclass, students will investigate this amazing and very visual shape.  They will construct the shape and see how it links to Pascal’s triangle, another interesting mathematical object.

Book Club – a two session Book Club before and after half-term

The Girl Who Became a Tree by Joseph Coelho

A re-telling of the ancient legend of Daphne who was turned into a tree to avoid the attentions of the god Apollo.  This is a heart-stoppingly imaginative story told in poems, at times bleak and even tragic, which is layered, rich and ultimately a tour de force of poetic skill and energy.

In our first session we will introduce the book to our young readers, with time to read it over half term – followed by a discussion group during the second session after half term.

Suitable for Year 5, for girls interested in a place in our Year 6 2021 or Year 7 2022.

Dates: Wednesday 26 May & Wednesday 9 June

Time: 4.15pm – 4.45pm

Brighton History

A two-session trip back in time to a very different sort of lock-down. Join us for a time travel adventure back to what Brighton was like during the Second World War. What might you have eaten? Could your street have been bombed?

The most vivid incident that I can remember is being machine-gunned by a German plane flying over our playing fields during a hockey match with Brighton & Hove High School.”

Brighton Girls Brighton Quiz

Run by our Sixth Form Team, here are some interesting facts and figures about Brighton and Brighton Girls GDST to inspire you to get involved. Did you know for example that the Temple building, currently undergoing a multi-million pound refurbishment, was once the home of Thomas Read Kemp of Kemp Town fame? Or that the artist Constable once lived just down the road from the school in Sillwood Road?   Lastly, as the oldest surviving girls’ school in Brighton, and I’ve started so I’ll finish, Brighton Girls was founded by pioneering women for the women of the future.  Join us for a fun quiz with our Sixth Form Leadership Team.
