In Science pupils were looking at how shoe sole casts are made at crime scenes. We had to use our observation skills to match the patterns. 

Groups tried taking their fingerprints to see how different we all are. We had fun making mini villains.

In Technology and Design pupils were learning about structures and how they are used in everyday life. We focused on Geodesic domes, the creator of the domes and how they are formed. Pupils created small Geodesic Domes using art straws and also paper. We also constructed a life size structure. This allowed pupils to experience how Geodesic domes are created using triangular construction. 

KS3 and KS4 pupils participated in Art workshops to promote S.T.E.A.M day. Pupils created a colourful tactile mural of science instruments and imagery to be displayed and enjoyed in school.

In Maths the focus was on financial capabilities, specifically all the different ways we can pay for things and how to do it safely.

The use of ATM’s – how to use them safely, how to look out for ATM’s that have been tampered with and what to do if you see anything suspicious.  

The use of chip and pin in shops – how to cover your pin number, what to do if your card is lost or stolen etc.

How to use contactless payment.

The differences between credit, debit and cash cards.

How to write a cheque.

How to buy things on the internet and how to do it safely.
