Logan, Maddison, Michaela, James, Tyler, Isaac and Tom (all year 7) are showing off their cake stands that they designed and made during two X Block sessions in the DT workshop this term. The cakes were baked by other members of year 7 as part of their Chefistry expedition. Look out for more beautiful work from our talented year 7 students!
As part of the year 7 expedition Rock On! last year’s students created a website detailing their findings about the other geological sites around Doncaster so that it can be used by other people who want to know about Doncaster’s rich geological history.
Students in Year 7 will be going out on fieldwork every Wednesday as part of their current expedition, beginning tomorrow (11th May).
All students will be working outdoors for extended periods so must have the following:
Wellington boots/walking boots
Students will be doing field research as well as manual service learning at Potteric Carr nature reserve so it is important that they have the appropriate kit.
We ask that students do not arrive in jeans, canvas trainers or open toed shoes for fieldwork as they are not appropriate for outdoor work. Students may bring a change of clothes for when they return to school.
Timings of the day will run as normal so there is no need to make a packed lunch. Students will finish the day at the normal time of 3.15.
Students have just completed a mid-term test on the surface area of cuboids. Paige (aged 12) was able to use her knowledge of cuboids to successfully calculate the surface area of an L-shaped prism too.
As part of their Chefistry Expedition, students are working to define what makes a healthy, savoury meal. They used unit rate to determine nutritional information per serving, calculated the daily recommended intake of each menu item and applied this information to make a nutrition labels.
