This week saw the return of students to Sharples, and so too the return of our Science Enrichment lunchtime clubs. If you are in Year 7, speak to your form tutor about joining up!

 

Star Wars Club

Tuesdays with Miss Fairhurst in G59. A short time ago in a classroom not too far away… Haris Kaduji 7S made his own lightsaber using an old water gun, fairy lights and duct tape; Alex Croston 7S1 made a droid out of recyclable rubbish; and Finn Wright 7S1 won the end of term raffle to win a Millennium Falcon stationery tin!

 

Astronomy Club

Thursdays with Mr Harding in G43. An opportunity to explore our fantastic observatory facility, including telescope maintenance (above left); light spectra (above right); galaxies, stars and planets.

 

STEM Club

Fridays with Miss Dudley in G45. Another opportunity to try out even more exciting practical activities in the lab! Practical work is a key hands-on skill for our Science students to develop, deepening their knowledge and understanding by enabling them to put their classroom theory into real-world practice.
