D2 Technology​

In Technology lessons in D2, students have been working on three main projects so far this term – cooking, design and woodburning. Each week on a Friday periods 3 and 4, students in D1 and D2 get together and cook, then share a meal with each other and their teachers and SLSOs. This week it was D2’s turn to cook for everyone, and they cooked pizza, even making the dough from scratch. In design, students upcycled some wire, glass drops and beads into a pendant. In woodburning, students have started a class project to contribute to the school that will be revealed at a later date! Stay tuned!

Miss Christoff brings Biology to D1/D2!​

This term we were very fortunate to welcome the expertise of Miss Christoff, Science/Biology teacher, to D1/D2 for a science lesson on dissections.

Students watched Miss Christoff’s demonstration of a bull’s eye being dissected, while she explained what each part was, what each part did and how it was the same or different to that of a human eye.
Students were then welcomed to put on a pair of gloves and touch each of the parts, even trying to put the eye back together to see how it all worked.

Thankyou Miss Christoff for a really interesting (and a little gross!) Science lesson!
