Middle School 2 have been learning about ‘Forces’ in Science. Today they investigated how applying force can change the effects of gravity. They made a special device to see if they could keep water in a cup whilst swinging the cup around and upside down. They learnt that a fast circular movement (a force) helped to keep the water in the cup even when it was completely upside down. The students had a good laugh as they tested their devices as some initially failed and the cups went flying, but in the end everyone was successful and had a good time. ... See MoreSee Less
Yesterday, our senior students had their first leadership training. Next week they will be leading focus group meetings to collect students' views on how we can improve different aspects of our school. ... See MoreSee Less
Here is the report from last weekend's Geography/Science Field trip
Friday After a long journey we arrived to find Grace and Adam our group leaders waiting for us. After a quick tour of the site we put our bags in our rooms and made our way to the classroom for some work!! We learnt about the coast at Norfolk, before trying out the different field work techniques we would be using the next day.
After a lovely dinner, and a fire practice we got into two groups for our first activity. Group 1 did outdoor laser and Group 2 did an obstacle course. Unfortunately we have no photos of these activities as it was too dark! Great teamwork and communication skills were seen by staff in both groups. After a little free time, and a long day, we headed for bed and everyone was asleep in no time!
