During these difficult times our dedicated teams are working around the clock to continue looking after our young people. To facilitate social distancing, our office based support staff will be working from home wherever possible and can be contacted using the numbers on our Contact Us page. We are still reviewing all referrals, offering placements where relevant, and planning for young people to move into our homes where it is safe to do so. Despite the challenges we all face during these testing times, we are committed to supporting you and our young people.
Two of our pupils have been working on an investigation using Minions to find out if the Minion in the middle of a huddle stays the warmest. This task gave them the opportunity to look at safety and fair testing.
The investigation involved 14 individual Minion cups each of which contained the same amount of hot water, The students used digital thermometers to check the water temperature and decided upon the time intervals to record the results.They subsequently discussed the results and conclusion, and were able to ensure it was a fair test. They then wrote up a full science investigation. Great work guys!
In later lessons, this will be linked
to how penguins help to keep each other warm in a big huddle during freezing temperatures.
Our Key Stage 4 group has just completed a AQA required practical (towards their GCSE Science) which involved learning how to use microscopes and draw scientific pictures of their findings. Well done all!
