The students enjoyed a day at Swanage Beach investigating the impact of coastal defences, followed by as a visit to Corfe Castle to see if the media image truly reflected the perceptions of locals. All Geography students are required to carry out two days fieldwork before taking their AS exams and they use this experience to prepare them for both their public exams in the summer and to get ideas for the independent investigation carried out in the summer term.
Thank you to the Science Museum for their engaging experiments today. Year 7 enjoyed seeing instant ice cream being made with liquid nitrogen, whilst Years 8 and 9 were captivated by the world of materials experiments.
The students saw the 21 century robotic assembly line and the production methods.
Readings from several poets brought the work alive and questions from the students allowed the poets to give an insight into their works. Highlights included the Poet Laureate, Simon Armitage, Daljit Nagra and the ever-popular John Agard who finished the day with a fantastic recital of 'Checking Out Me History'.
Congratulations to our Year 10 students and Ms Day, who are presenting with Albion Computers this week at the Bett show
