Making cakes

Pupils in 7D have enjoyed  Food Technology this half term. We have made a variety of scones, and have now moved on to making small cakes. We started by using a wooden spoon to mix, then moved on to an electric mixer. We all agreed that the mixer was much easier!

7D Science

7D enjoyed testing their helicopters to find out whether the length of the wings altered the time it took to hit the ground.

We found that the smaller the wings, the quicker it fell to the ground!

7S Measuring in Maths

Solar Cars

7S have spent the last couple of weeks on a big project. They researched, designed, made and tested solar cars, because we have been learning about renewable and non renewable energy in science. They all did a brilliant job. Well done 7S!

7S Zoolab

7s had a ‘wild’ time at the zoolab workshop as part of their end of term reward.


Turbine or not turbine…

7S have been learning about renewable energy resources in science. Our latest project was to design and build a wind turbine.


We worked in pairs and made the base using newspaper, we had to think of our own way to make it stand without the base falling over.


We designed our own propellers, using lots of colour.


Finally we tested them using a fan.


We figured out how to make the test fair so we could see whose design would stand the longest.


 7S animations

Students have drawn a storyboard and are now building the sets from Lego or dough in preparation for filming their animations all about ‘road safety’.


Making jelly

In science 7S made jelly, as we are learning about how things dissolve. We looked at how temperature could affect the speed the jelly dissolved. We enjoyed making the jelly and eating it was pretty fun too!

7S, 7M and 7W learning about animation

Year 7 have been making thaumatropes, an early animation device, in computing.  They have been researching the history of animation as they will soon be making their own all about road safety.


Amazing Psychedelic Milk!

In science 7S have been learning about liquids. Today we used milk, food colouring and washing up liquid to help us understand how liquids move.
