Year 8 Computer Science students visited the Center for Computing History in Cambridge.

Students were grouped into ‘the Mighty Commodores,’ ‘Razor Sharp Spectrum’ and ‘The legendary Dragons.’ They took part in a range of activities, including a tour of the main gallery looking at the history and timeline of computing, an educational workshop and lecture on Robots in the ‘Mega Processor Zone,’ the world’s largest working model of a microprocessor and an interactive session with ‘Jennifer’ an advanced robot. They also had an engaging lesson on programming using pi models and controlling objects with Python.

ww1cen18 1914Students at both campuses have been involved in commemorating the WW1 Centenary. 

Every student at Walton High from was given the opportunity to create a poppy for remembrance, either for those who perished in the conflict or for someone close to them.

At least ninety students volunteered after school to help put the displays together.  We cannot thank them enough and would like to say how very proud we are.

Miss Crummy, Miss Keiller and the Art department worked tirelessly to produce the amazing installation with each poppy was handmade by students. 

Key Stage 3 Drama students prepared poems to perform at lunchtime and work from Year 6 students at Heronsgate is displayed in Student Services.

The levels of enthusiasm shown by students has been fantastic. A big thank you to everyone involved!

Our Year 10 Design and Technology students have been creating poppies of remembrance this week. They have been making them by hand using acrylic, with some students applying heat to create 3D poppies. Fantastic work.

lang18 19Training for the UK Linguistics Olympiad started last night at Brooklands. Students from years 7-11 were involved looking at linguistic puzzles in Mokilese, Tamil, Estonian & Tshiluba languages.

This is a national competition where students have to decode other languages and break down linguistic patterns, which is extremely challenging!

The students all worked really hard in their first training session, working towards the competition in February. Keep up the good work!
