Year 8 created some awesome DNA models over the Christmas break, well done!
Students attended the Royal Christmas Lectures, they have been a delight. Most of them are currently studying ‘Genes and Variation’ so it has been especially relevant to them. They have asked many questions about the evolution of humans and have made links back in lessons – the have even been teaching others additional information!
“In science we have been watching the Christmas Lectures, this year called Who Am I? It is all about genetics, evolution and animal and human adaptation. We have also been learning about this particular topic in science lessons too. I have really enjoyed watching the films to further my understanding and also watch experiments that can prove things on a bigger scale.”

STEM club, Year 9s have been looking at ‘Exciting Electrons’ and testing metal ions using flame tests. They especially enjoyed a bit of STEAM (Art – taking photographs of the flames).
