This Week’s Theme:
– Be Respectful
Festival of Chemistry
– Four students from Year 7 and Year 8 attended the University of Manchester for a Salters’ Institute Festival of Chemistry. The Salters’ Institute Festivals of Chemistry are a series of popular and inspiring one day Chemistry events held at Universities and Colleges across the UK. The festival provided the opportunity for the students to spend a day in the university department and to take part in practical chemistry activities which were fun! Students experienced exciting hands-on practical Chemistry challenges in University labs, carried out investigations “like a real Chemist”, worked well in a team to independently solve a problem and saw the Amazing FLASH BANG POP SHOW. The students who attended received a certificate for taking part. Well done to: Haniyyah Parvaiz, Deacon Hulme, Elliot Farrell and Oyin Owolabi.
Junior Maths Challenge
– Year 7 and 8 High Achievers in Maths recently participated in the Junior Maths Challenge. 28 students achieved enough marks for a certificate; with 18 gaining bronze, 8 gaining silver and 2 gaining gold; very well done. A special mention for Year 7 student Nicholas Robinson who has been selected to participate in the Maths Challenge Kangaroo which is the next stage of the competition.
