S5 are engaging well in a ‘forces’ topic in Science this term and really enjoying the sensory science experiments.

The pupils are going to cookery with Gail for a 6 week block to make snacks and meals which are easy to prepare – the sticky granola bars were devoured this week!

We are going to ‘coding club’ this term which puts children in control of the computer and lets them learn through experimentation, mastering concepts such as logic and consequences. It can also be a lot more fun than traditional ICT lessons, which typically revolve around using Word and PowerPoint. The pupils have been loving controlling robots, making devices change colour through iPad apps and engaging in problem solving devices.
