Sewing machine skills

This afternoon pupils in 7D had the opportunity to experiment with some different speeds and styles of stitching using a sewing machine, as well as using the foot pedal. With a little practice everyone became more confident when using the sewing machine, and were very proud of the work they produced. Well done, 7D!




This afternoon the fabulous 7D have enjoyed making cells using sweets! We used strawberry laces to represent the cell membrane, a strawberry mushroom to be the nucleus, jelly tots as mitochondrion and rainbow drops as the ribosomes. We topped it off with some jelly to represent the cytoplasm. We had great fun!

11L Science

We have been working on the AQA award Introduction to chemistry. This week we explored what happened when we put magnesium metal into hydrochloric acid.

We conducted a risk assessment first.

We could see bubbling, hear fizzing and the test tube felt warm from the chemical reaction taking place.
