As part of their Dynamic Earth topic, Year 7 constructed volcanoes and used Bicarbonate of soda and vinegar to erupt them!

Egg drop challenge! Year 7 were given limited resources to build something that would protect their egg from a height. Most survived the drop from mobile 6 but only the eggs in the best designs survived falling from the classroom window!

Business beginnings challenge

Visit to the Titanic Museum

The pupils enjoyed creating pictures with 2D shapes. They then made algebraic equations to calculate the number of corners in their pictures! 

The Year 7s were invited to the Somme centre for a guided tour around the museum and had the chance to handle artefacts and weaponry. They learnt about the 36th Ulster division and their memorial in Thiepval, a replica of Helen’s tower in Clandeboye where they trained. A very moving visit.

William Morris: an influential Victorian artist known best for his textile designs based upon nature. The pupils studied his work and printed their own nature designs.
