Year 7 ‘Taste the Future’ during enrichment

On November 5th, year 7 enjoyed five taster lessons of subjects that they have never studied before but one day, might choose to.

Several year 7s said that they enjoyed Politics best, because “I learnt loads that I never knew before” and “I now understand what is happening with Trump and Biden in the election”. Next door, the year 7 workshop was Criminology ‘The Face of Crime’ in which students discussed what a ‘criminal’ looked like. In Sociology students created societies. I particularly liked Isabel O’Donoghue’s ‘Candy Land’. In Psychology, students studied memory, authority and attention. They created an experiment for one of the topics studied. Another favourite amongst several students was Business Studies which ran an ‘App Design’ session. Students liked the fact that their App had to solve a real problem. Luckily no child was behaving badly during the ‘Children Behaving Badly’ session run by the Childcare department. Lots of discussion took place here about the rights and wrongs of rewards and how the ‘Supernanny Naughty Step’ could be most effectively used. Computing provided an opportunity for students to be creative again through a programming task. Year 7s even got to space travel during their ‘Alien Adventures in Philosophy’. One student told me that he liked the question asked because “they made him think carefully”.

All in all, a fun, exciting and ‘different’ day at school for year 7. One for them to remember!
