Year 8 pupils have been investigating what surface a ball bounces on best. They took short photo bursts on a camera to see the balls highest point. They found out the ball bounces the highest on concrete and the lowest on grass! The Year 9 pupils looked at chromatography of inks, look at the photo of the food colourings in skittles making a lovely rainbow!
LB class have started enjoying Yoga lessons. The pupils are really following the school motto well because they are all having a go and doing their best. It was a bit strange for some people at first but the teacher said thinking about our breathing and doing Yoga poses might help us to be in the Green Zone. It worked! The exercises made Jamie feel calm and Paris feel peaceful. Connor said 'It was fun'.
A group of pupils from our Secondary Department were very lucky enough to recently be invited to experience a day of Fishing in Brentwood. They visited Tylers Common Fishery where they learnt about the different skills that are needed to go fishing. As you can see from the photos they did extremely well!
Year 11 Prom
On Wednesday 13th June the Year 11 pupils attended their Prom. They arrived in style in Limousines and had their photographs taken on the red carpet. Once inside they were entertained by a magician and were served a drink from the Cocktail Bar. During the evening they sat down for a meal together and then enjoyed time dancing and having some more photos taken with props etc. A lovely night was had by all!
Duke of Edinburgh Expedition
A huge well done to the group of Year 10 pupils who completed their Bronze expedition recently. The pupils walked for miles during the day, cooked their own dinners with trangias (outdoor camping stoves!) and then camped out overnight in tents. They even had time to have some fun, rolling tractor tyres down hills and hiding in tree trunks! Despite the hard work everyone had an amazing time whilst creating some lovely memories with their friends.
Each Friday Mr Sankey, Miss Stone and a Year 10 class spend the day at Writtle College near Chelmsford. Writtle was established in 1893 and offers a range of land-based, design and sport courses at various levels of academic study including Postgraduate, Undergraduate, Further Education, Short Courses and Apprenticeships. Our Year 10 pupils spend time each week in various areas of the college doing interesting things such as gardening, woodwork and working with the animals.
