Welcome to our First Years!

Today we were delighted to welcome our First Years students for 2021/22!

The sun was shining,so they all headed outside for a bit of ‘Speed Dating’ to get to know each other followed by a quick IT lesson on their new tablets.

We hope they all enjoyed their first day and look forward to seeing them all again for their first full day on Monday!

First year Green Schools members busy at work!

Some of the first year Greenschools students busy working on the Biodiversity theme…using a novel way to find the height and age of a tree!

Move away from the tree to a point where you can clearly see the top of the tree through your legs as you bend over . Measure the distance from you to the tree and then measure the length of your leg ,add the two together and you have your answer.

So the oak tree at the front of our school is approx 120 years old and it stands at 52 feet tall.
