Monday 14th March saw the beginning of our celebration of Science Week. Science week began with a Maths Puzzle Day for year 8 organised by Mrs Staunton. This took place in lower school hall and involved the pupils using their mathematical skills to solve a series of puzzles. The pupils had a great time and were able to see much fun Maths really is.
During the L4L day on Tuesday, Year 7 and 8 took part in a STEM Space Day organised by Mrs Quayum. Year 7 designed and built bio domes suitable for life on Mars and year 8 made rockets and solar ovens. Both pupils and form tutors had a great deal of fun and thoroughly enjoyed the day.
The sixth form also took part in Health MOT on L4L day organised by Dr Parker in which they were able to test their fitness levels, blood pressure and learn about some of the ways to live a healthy lifestyle.
Year 9 took part in a special science lesson organised by Mrs Quayum to find out how bubble mixtures work and what factors effect bubble size. Mr Braims’ class managed to make a bubble large enough to completely surround 2 pupils!!
Year 10 took part in a special lesson entitled ‘magic writing’ organised by Mrs Hanvey, in which they learned about how some of the ways in which chemical reactions have everyday applications and how secret messages could be sent in the 19th Century.
