In STEM club this week the students have used red cabbages to make their own indicators to test for acids and alkalis. The students agreed it was a better indicator than the traditional laboratory stock. 

The learning support team have been making craft items for Easter.  They will be selling the items they make to raise funds for materials for future craft projects. 

Pet therapy continues to be a great support for our students, with groups interacting with and learning how to use hand signals to train the dogs. The dogs enjoy their bonus treats as well at the end of each session.

Enrichment continues to provide our students with a wide range of activities and experiences to complement their education. This week’s highlights were a fantastic display of static electricity in science, some lovely cupcakes and flapjacks in cookery, live music courtesy of the music department, and confident cycling skills from Mr Butt’s cycling group. 

Next week is Science week and the academy will see a focus on careers in science.  

April also look very busy for our sporting clubs, with football fixtures throughout the month and the dodgeball club taking part in a tournament in Derby.  Good luck to all of our students taking part in sporting fixtures.
