Date Posted: 12/01/2018 | Posted In: A Level, Student News

Year 9 high school pupils engaged in some very interesting activities on our RAY evening. The STEM strand included dissecting a variety of animal species comparing their digestive and respiratory systems. Pupils explored Polymers in Chemistry which included sticky moments and flying objects! Psychology pupils took part in a ‘taste the rainbow’ experiment looking at how evolution has affected the way in which we identify and perceive factors in our environments.

The Sport strand included sessions on Anatomy and Physiology, Nutrition, Sports and Exercise Massage, Leadership in Sport and Exercise Physiology. Some pupils used their creative skills to generate electronic music, original arrangements and combinations of sounds to create a dance, rock or pop track using the app GarageBand. Also included in the sessions were: Creative Writing, Languages, Art and Design, Computer Science, Humanities and Health and Social Care!

Year 10 pupils took part in revision workshops and team building events involving lots of newspaper! Well done to all our Ray pupils for your enthusiasm and dedication during the evening.
