Outdoor Learning Day 2018 brought temperatures in the high twenties and a wide variety of subjects taking their lessons out of the classroom into our beautiful school grounds. Thank you to students and staff that took part.
• In Art it was the perfect opportunity for year 9 students to try ‘hydro-dipping’, allowing them to use expressive gestures to apply paint without worrying about making a mess.
• In Latin 8B acted out the tribal voting of 5th Century democratic Athens.
• In Science 8C searched for examples of different types of pollination.
• In Computing year 10 students raced against time to complete the computational thinking challenge.
• Many English lessons took place outside.
• In Geography year 8 students studied the Madagascan Rainforest whilst sitting in the school woods.
• In RS year 7 students acted out modern day parables and year 8 students answered questions on Constantine.
• In Maths year 7s used trigonometry to estimate the height of the new quad and another class learnt about loci.
A year 10 Maths class had a practical lesson including bearings, distance and speed.
