The next thing we did was attend the Ambitions careers event at Sparken Hill. There was a huge range of people there to tell us more about different careers and study options that we might want to pursue when we get older.
Sports Day was a huge success with the trophy going to Clumber House. Again!! Quite a few of us attended the Big Transition events at Portland to prepare us for the transition days this week. You can let us know how you’re getting on whilst you’re away if you want to!
In our science work, we have been finding out lots more about ‘Light’. I was very impressed with how you were able to talk about angles of incidence and reflection and how you applied this when you were making your periscopes!
Our adventures turned then to Derbyshire. Having researched lots of different places, we visited Bakewell where we observed the livestock auction in action, took to the streets to complete some town surveys before hiking 7 miles! We were exhausted but very, very proud of ourselves and were rewarded with some delicious local delicacies. Bakewell tart beat Bakewell pudding by a mile when we voted on our favourite!!
We still have another three and a bit weeks of learning left so check back in again soon to see what else we get up to: there’s lots more to come!!
