On Wednesday, the Year 8 football team played a home fixture against Walton Academy.  It was a tough fixture for the team but the players never gave up and demonstrated an excellent attitude and team spirit. There was some excellent goalkeeping in the first half, which kept Walton Academy at bay until our goalkeeper suffered an injury.  The game was even until 20 minutes from the end when Walton Academy scored the winning goal.  Well done to both teams for a fantastic game!

This term sees two more fixtures and an away fixture for the girls’ team next Monday.

In STEM club this week, we investigated the heat of neutralisation, which required a high degree of accuracy in measurements of volume and temperature.  Concentration skills were a must!

The enrichment program continues to offer new experiences to our students, with highlights of the week being:

  • Eyeball dissection.
  • Quick and easy folded flatbreads in food.
  • History displays.
  • Bass guitar – smoke on the water solo!

During PHSE drop down day on Thursday, Year 11 students received a talk based on revision techniques and growth mind set from LincHigher.  New revision techniques and wellbeing were amongst discussions and the students were pleased to pick up some strategies to help them through the exam series.
