Two classes of Year 6 students from Wellesley Park School have visited Court Fields School to take part in the ‘Secrets of the Ice’ investigation. The youngsters were given the chance to investigate the history of the Earth’s environment through a series of engaging and hands-on experiments.
They were ably assisted by Mr Uddin and Mr Seymour from the science department. The stars of the show though were 18 Year 9 students from Court Fields who led the groups through their activities. Tessa Clarke from Wellesley Park said ‘The children really enjoyed it, especially getting their hands on ‘grown-up’ science equipment.’
Mr Bond, Head of Science at Court Fields is keen for all local Yr6 students to get a sneak preview of Science at Court Fields. ‘I’m really keen for them to hit the ground running when they come in year 7. We want them to carry their enthusiasm right through their time here and help to continue our year-on-year improvement in results.’
On Thursday 18th September 5 Court Fields year 7 students were joined by gifted and talented singers from our feeder primaries including Langford Budville, Samford and Rockwell Green to spend the morning taking part in a singing workshop. The activities were led by Kirtsen Wordley, from Somerset Music, and Sarah Chidgey, Head of Music at Court Fields School.
Students performed at the end of the morning and the repertoire included such diverse songs as Lean On Me and Ain’t No Mountain High Enough to traditional African Tribal songs – all sung in up to three parts and from memory. Everyone had a great time and the students took their new knowledge back to their schools to pass onto other singers.
