Don't forget the Guinea worm!!

Year 8 came to the end of their development topic today with a visit by Jane Attar from ActionAid. Jane delivered two fantastic talks about development levels throughout the world, human rights and how people's rights are regulary denied in developing nations. Year 8 gained a clear insight in how ActionAid can help people to establish their human rights to help to develop their own communities.

We would now like Year 8 to come up with fundraising ideas to raise money for ActionAid in the work that they do. The ideas will be discussed in upcoming form time and hopefully Year 8 will have a project up and running before Christmas. Follow up todays talk on the ActionAid website

Year 10 - Waterfall Models

Year 10 have begun their GCSE by studying river processes and landscapes. As their studies moved along the course of a river they begun to identify specific featues that occur along the course of a river. This led us directly to the formation of waterfalls. After looking at the main processes that lead to the formation of a waterfall, they worked as a group to create four models to demonstrate this

Here are the fantastic results!
