Edible Cells with 3HI

This term, 3HI have been learning all about cells, the building blocks of living organisms. 

To help us understand what cells look like, and which organelles we find inside them, we created our own cells out of biscuits.

Well done 3HI!

Rain Water Recovery

Due in part to a grant from the Southern Water Community Grants, we are improving our rain water recovery on the allotment with help from Newfields CIC. 

This will involve new roofing, guttering and water butts for the allotment shed, but as you can see from the photographs, Matthew and his team have their work cut out! 

Their first task was to re-board the allotment beds and clear through this years growth. 

With a final weed through, these will be ready for planting when we return in the Autumn term.

Summer Club 2017 - Saints Foundation





Summer Club 2017 - Saints Foundation
Each Summer Holidays we host a Summer Activity Club for our pupils. Today we were lucky enough to receive a days activities from the Saints Foundation.

Steve Bollon from the Saints Foundation was assisted by our two Thrive Mentors in delivering sports activities to our pupils.
These included dodgeball, table tennis, one legged tag and odd team football.
After lunch they got out their inflatable target for some shooting practice and some team target practice games.
All of the pupils had a great day and our thanks go out to the Saints Foundation for this opportunity.

Celebrating our successes on Doddle.

For our first year using Doddle it has been a HUGE success and we should all be very proud of our achievements.

Iceland 2017 - Day 4

Iceland Residential 2017 - Day 4
The last morning of our Icelandic adventure was an early one as today we were off Whale Watching. After we packed our bags and did a room check we departed to Reykjavik harbour.
We explored the harbour looked at the Coastguard and Navy ships then boarded the Elding Whale Watching vessel.

We departed on our 3 hour voyage in hopes of spotting some of the marine animals that lived in the Icelandic seas.

The ship used sonar pings to try and locate whales and dolphins that were close by in the hopes of us seeing them.
A Minke Whale surfaced on a couple of occasions for air but we were to slow too capture a good shot. We were however fortunate enough to be joined by a pod of dolphins for at least 20 minutes. They swam alongside the boat and even did some acrobatics whilst trying to disturb fish for food.

When we departed we visited the Perlan, a glass domed art gallery and performing space, which gave us an excellent last look across Reykjavik.
We took our last bus trip out of Reykjavik to Keflavik Airport where we said a fond farewell to Karl, our driver and guide.
Time to go home. As you can see some were very excited by this prospect!
We got to see some great sights, visit some amazing places and meet some wonderful people.
All of the pupils and staff had a brilliant time.
Thank you to Discover the World for organising our itinerary.
We truly had a wonderful trip.

A lovely year with the year 7s...

As we near the end of this academic year, I thought it would be nice to upload some of our favourite pictures from the last year.

I would like to tell you all boys how proud we are of you-you have all come so far in a short amount of time and we will miss having you as out year group (don't worry-you still have Maths with us everyday!)
Have a lovely summer and know we will be thinking of you and looking forward to September.

Well done Jaiden D, Liam, Jaiden P, Ethan, Dean, Taylor and Ryan-we have made a great team!
