By pouring a known volume of water over known masses of different soil samples, Year 7 investigated water drainage. Over 15 minutes, they recorded the volume of water that was able to pass through the soil, into the measuring cylinder below. Our next lesson will involve investigating the volume of air in the same soil samples.
Students from the Young Entrepreneurs programme presented their latest developments to the rest of secondary in this week’s assembly. The teams are ‘Eats and Treats’ and ‘Novagem’ in Year 9 followed by ‘Cook Cookie’ and ‘Bubble Blooms’ in Year 10. The teams have been developing their products since October with just one hour per week during ECA time. Eats and Treats have sourced a supplier, conducted market research and made sales whilst Novagem have spent considerable time developing an exciting new board game. Cook Cookie have focussed on their branding whilst Bubble Blooms have been developing their new drinks to get the flavours just right.
