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.

mkschoolsyr10badmintonTourn1819Walton High swept the board at the recent MK Schools YR10 Girls Badminton Tournament held at Lord Grey.

Two of our girls, Alysha and Charlotte, have played together many times as part of our Badminton squad throughout their time at Walton High, but this ranks as their best performance yet.

Mr Eyre said they were “brilliant and a pleasure to watch”. Their technique at times was fantastic and he could tell right from the start that they would do very well against the other schools.

It was a pity that they had to play each other in the Singles semi-final,  but that is the nature of tournaments. Mr Eyre said it was a fantastic game that Alysha eventually won. She then went on to win the title quite comfortably.

Charlotte played with Alysha in the Doubles competition and they won that too.

Terrific effort girls!
