Acids and Alkalis

In science 7M used universal indicator to find out if substances were acids or alkalis.

Friday Enrichment Myths and Legends

This term we are learning about Norse mythology. Last week we learned how Vikings used runes and this week we made them!

Next week we shall be painting our runes, so come back and see our marvellous designs.

Year 7 Science

7M and 7S have both started the chemistry module ‘Acids and Bases’. We started by trying some of the everyday acids we have already encountered in food.

Some flavours were not popular.

8T Science

Since returning 8T have started a new topic called Rocks and Weathering. So far we have learned who Mary Anning is and used our observation skills to examine some rocks of our own. Great job 8T.

7M Christmas Day 1

What a great day, we started by opening presents, and watched the school assembly where we celebrated our achievements and laughed so much at Mr Tweddle and Mr Keen! We then played games, and ate a pizza and a buffet for lunch. We enjoyed a movie to finish off the afternoon. Thank you FOTO’s for the donation so we could enjoy today.

Myths and Legends

Today we created our own legends. Adorable? Horrifying? You decide.

Friday Enrichment: Myths and Legends

After more practice we fine tuned our dot painting techniques. Do you like our finished work? We are very proud of what we have achieved.

7M Science

7M are learning about variation. In this topic we look at how living organisms are different and how they have adapted to their environments.


Over the past 2 lessons we have designed and made a model of our own animal which is a mix of at least two different animals. Can you guess the animal combinations?


Myths and Legends

Today we explored aboriginal culture and had a go at aboriginal dot painting. Today we painted a boomerang and explored mixing colours and different dot techniques. We hope you like our work. Next week we are putting our skills to the test and have selected Australian animals to paint.

We practised first and made some designs,

Myths and Legends

Today we learned about Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plot. We made our own sparklers! Next week we will be doing something crafty, so stay tuned.
