Fascinating lecture to possible future A Level students
We had a brilliant Masterclass speaker who came to talk about anatomy and the circulatory system to our PE GCSE students. An attentive group of Year 9 and 10s listened to Simon Blomfield who specialises in Anatomy and Physiology at Alton College. He really engaged with all the students and gave them a real taste of A Level learning.
Here's what a couple of students thought:
'I found the PE anatomy class very beneficial because, not only was it educational, it was also fun to be taught in a different style. It was interesting that the focus of the lesson was on active learning; it was very enjoyable due to the fact we all got involved at different parts of the session. As a student, I felt it was very useful to get a taste of what college life will be like in the future, especially if I choose to study PE/Biology.' (Evie G.)
'It was really interesting and I enjoyed the way he taught us. I learnt a bit more all round and had fun. I also liked the fact that if we did something, he gave a prize!' (Morgan B.)
Do the Maths! Year 10 students Libby, Evie, Jess and Cali took up the Alton School Maths Challenge this week. Working with four future Eggar's students from Bentley School, they tackled three rounds of very difficult problem-solving maths. They were fantastic ambassadors https://t.co/onVvrb3qcJ 10:18 PM - 25 Jun 2022
It's Fri-YAY and we're celebrating Matt D and his performance at the National Schools Biathle last weekend. He was placed 2nd in the Year 7 Boys race. (Biathle is an event that can involve a runswimrun course, or simply a swimrun course). #SoundsExhausting #GoMattGo https://t.co/pIe7RXQUpa 6:00 PM - 24 Jun 2022
