The Paper Bag Challenge

As part of our Fairtrade topic, Year 7 had the challenge of working in teams to make paper bags.  This was to replicate the experiences of eleven-year-old children in India who do this as a job.  We calculated how many paper bags we could make in a day and whether or not it provided us with enough rupees to live on.

Creativity Week

Year 7 enjoyed a variety of creative activities this week - drumming, highland dancing, hip hop, drama and art.

They also produced splendid Pop Art inspired by Andy Warhol, for our Edwards 'Art of the Extraordinary' Gallery.

Internet Safety Day 2024

To raise awareness of both the positives and dangers of life 'online,' Year 7 had an informative visit from the PSNI and an excellent presentation  from the Technology Council.  

Morse Code

Year 7 have experimented with making circuits to tap Morse Code.  We have learned that Morse Code saved many lives during World War II.

Verse Speaking

Congratulations to the Year 7 pupils who participated in verse speaking today.  They did a beautiful job of learning and reciting the poem, 'The Flattered Flying Fish.'

Abigail, Caleb and John-Ross took equal first place and won the KS2 Verse Speaking Cup.

Firepit Fun

To celebrate SEAG results Year 7 pupils enjoyed toasting marshmallows and washing them down with hot chocolate. Delicious!


Year 7 designed and experimented with  making a transporter for a toy and running it along ziplines.  We explored using different variables to see how they would affect our results.
