Mini Volcanoes

 

Year 9s have been focusing  on natural hazards this term such as—volcanoes and earthquakes. We decided to create our own mini exploding volcanic structures. We tested using mentos with coke and baking soda with vinegar; we found that the latter gave the best results! The Y9s produced creative models with the surviving volcanoes displayed in their classroom. .

Maths trip to the Aquarium

Yr 10s travelled to  the London Aquarium on Fri 18th Dec 2015  with Ms Mamduha and Ms Hayat Mohamed as part of their curriculum on calculating volume. Learning Maths could not have been more exciting as Maths was taken outside the classroom! We calculated volume and area using fractions, ratios and percentages. We learnt about how structures in zoos and aquariums decide on the size of tanks in proportion to the amount of sea life that is kept there.
