Miss Aiston and Miss Jamison, with the help of some willing 6th form volunteers, have been busy working with some of our primary feeder schools already this year!
Highfield Primary school runs Space competition sponsored by St Anne’s!
Inspired by Tim Peake’s impending journey to the International Space station, pupils from Highfield Primary school took part in a space science competition. Through our previous work with the Primary Science Teaching Trust, we were able to fund prizes for year group winners and overall KS1 and 2 winners. The entries were brilliant and Miss Aiston and Miss Jamison were very glad they were not the ones having to make those tricky decisions! Below are pictures of some of the entries and more information can be found on Highfield primary schools blog: http://www.highfieldceprimaryschool.co.uk/2015/10/space-competition-winners-revealed/
Gopher Science Labs Day
This event involved a visit from the three Year 5 classes from Spring Hill who joined us to participate in a Gopher Science Labs day. A group of excellent student demonstrators from Year 8 and Year 11 worked with the Year 5’s on a number of practical activities. A great day was had by all! Below are some pictures of the day.
Thank you to the science technician team and our pupil demonstrators; Misha Patel, Sophie Lee, Bethany Howard, Lovena Appadoo, Emily Green, Abigail Lash, Fajr Khan, Mariya Idiculla, Olivia Gadziha, Natalia Skrobot, Sejal Kumar, Temiloluwa Onanuga, Sidrah Sultan, Suhra Bil Samiha, Anna Swindell, Larissa Serban, Amandeep Bhandall, Yasmin Gusmao, Nancy Lambert, Haneen Al-Hashimi, Amrita Bhakar, Alyana Cacacho, Maria Takeuchi, Maimoona Niazi and Olivia Stapleton.
A Time to Grow Workshops
By the end of the Autumn term Miss Aiston and Miss Jamison will have visited 7 feeder schools to work with students from Years 4 to 6 on a special workshop covering what plants need to grow and exploring what helps people to grow as individuals. They have been really impressed by the attitudes and enthusiasm of the pupils they have visited so far and hope to see lots of class plant pots and packets of seeds being nurtured by the students, their friends and families over the coming months. They are also looking forward to meeting even more Year 7 ‘St Annian’s’ of the future this term!
During the spring and summer terms Miss Aiston and Miss Jamison will be returning to a number of feeder schools to work with smaller groups of students from Year 4 and 5 on specially tailored space science and RE projects about healthy growth, both physically on board the International Space station (as Tim Peake is about to become the first British astronaut to take up residence there!) and spiritually (using their thinking skills and creativity).
