Good luck to the Year 8 future business magnates team at tonight’s FBM finals, they’ve done a brilliant job so far in the competition with their presentation and their product, Kapopo recycling where people can win points and these are turned into prizes. Good luck.
Y10 started their tasters of colleges with a visit to New College. They chose two taster subjects that interested them to try. Everyone had a fantastic time. Pupils enjoyed using equipment that they had never used before such as pipe cutters and welding equipment.
This week 8W have been working on our measuring skills. We spent one lesson measuring water and using pippettes.
Parents evening for pupils in Year 7, 8, 9, 10 and any year 11 pupils who are not leaving
Year 9 have been focussing on non-fiction texts and have used their knowledge to create an eye catching and informative display.
Today, year 11 textiles are displaying their work to parents, staff and pupils. They have all worked hard throughout the course and produced some wonderful pieces as well as learning new skills. Well done year 11!
Some pupils in Year 11 have enjoyed taking part in an outdoor fitness session run by Rob Proud today – everyone tried hard and had lots of fun!
The year 10 Vocational Studies group were back at the Locomotion Museum garden this afternoon.
The recent combination of warm weather and rain has helped the plants grow and start to flower. Unfortunately, it has also helped the weeds to grow – so we had to spend some time weeding the raised flowerbeds again. We also spent time picking the weeds from the gravel around the flowerbeds.
There were a few spaces in the flowerbeds, so we planted the last of our new plants for the season. This included planting twenty nasturtium seedlings – which should be blooming with sways of red flowers by the time we next visit the garden in July.
Staff at the museum tell us that they get lots of comments from visitors to the museum about the flowerbeds.
Well done team – all your hard work is clearly appreciated by the local community!!
