On Wednesday 28th March, the GCSE Geography students enjoyed a visit to Birmingham where they collected primary data to help them to investigate the task question ‘How does quality of life vary in Birmingham?’. The students had prepared for the visit by deciding on key questions and methods of data collection; they chose an environmental quality survey and created a questionnaire.
Our Key Stage 3 students enjoyed an instructive and enjoyable day at the Museum of Science and Industry, situated on the site of the world’s first inter-city railway station in Manchester, the cradle of the Industrial Revolution.
The museum not only illustrates how scientific ideas are used to develop useful machines with interactive displays and exhibits, but also describes the social changes and impact on the population. A truly cross-curricular experience.
Reception joined in the Easter Assembly this morning and read their Easter Poem.
Reception class children had a lovely afternoon with parent’s at their 'Stay and Play'. They decorated Easter Bonnets, which they will parade at the Easter Assembly tomorrow.
Year 7 students worked in groups of 3 or 4 to create collages to represent their views on climate change. They used a variety of materials and images to create the collages and presented their work to the whole class. Mrs Jovanovic and Mrs Longmore were very impressed with the standard of the work and their enthusiasm for the project.
On Wednesday 21st March, we held a special whole school assembly on Earth Hour. Mrs Longmore led the assembly and asked students to think about; what makes Planet Earth special? What are the biggest threats to Planet Earth and what can we do to help to protect the planet?
Whilst there, all had the opportunity to take time out from the pressures of school work; pray; reflect on what was important to them in life; strengthen friendships and support each other in the various challenges set for them.
Primary 1 had a wonderful day visiting the Museum of Childhood. Thank you to our very informative tour guide who showed us around the museum. We played with toys from the past and compared them to the toys that we play with now.
