During our science work about light we have been understanding how our eyes work and finding the different parts of an eye. We were very proud that everyone found a way to be part of this activity.
We mixed acids and alkalis to make sherbert. Our favourite recipes were;
Citric acid : bicarbonate of soda: strawberry jelly
2 : 1 : 1
2 : 3 : 4
The KS3 craft option module this term has had a seasonal theme. Students have been busy making homemade gifts by upcycling and recycling frames. They have also made scented candles and hand-sewn lavender bags, filling them with the dried lavender flowers, harvested from our grounds.
World Mental Health Day
Friday 9th October was World Mental Health day. We celebrated this on Thursday 8th October. We wanted to raise some money for Young Minds, the mental health charity for young people. They used Yellow as their theme.
Lots of us from KS3 PRU wore yellow and some other sites joined in too. We also did sponsored challenges like running or walking a mile, winning at pool or staying silent for as long as we could. We also made and sold cakes.
All together we raised…. £44.25!
During lock down we only had a few students on site, so we decided to repaint our break room. The students and staff worked really hard to brighten up the space, here are some pictures of the work in progress.
