Weekly Sport Update

Weekly Sport Update:
All summer sports clubs are up and running and the attendance at all of them has been amazing.
Well done to the Year 8 boys football team who made it to the semi final. An excellent effort but unfortunately they lost to Ferndown.

Bird Box

The Science department have set up a bird box just outside S5, as part of Spring watch club. Students have been monitoring the progress of the nest every school day, since the first bird visited on 23rd March. The birds laid some eggs on the 9th April, which we are expecting to hatch between Saturday 21st and Tuesday 25th April.

The students are also growing sunflowers and broad beans and are watching caterpillars develop into butterflies. They have cleaned the school pond and are also tracking the progress of the tadpoles they collected.
More updates to follow.
