This week we invited Year 5 students from our feeder primaries; Holy Cross, Holy Spirit and St Anne's to take part in a Science event with some of our Science Department.
The students were asked to take part in the challenge of building the fastest rocket they could, with only a handful of materials such as balloons.
Throughout the task they worked in teams and brainstormed possible ideas and also showed off their problem-solving and communication skills.
As a school, it is one of our priorities to work hard to build relationships with our local primary schools and the wider community.
Mrs Dawber, Head of Year 7 and Transition said: "It's fantastic seeing students enjoy their time here at St Cuthbert's and have a look into our brilliant subject areas and a real taste of what life is like here."
Mrs Melling, our Science Technician said: "I thoroughly enjoyed my day, as much as the children did. It was great to get them so interested and excited about Science!"
This is just one of many of the fun and engaging events that we hold throughout the academic for our local Primaries, with others being a 'Maths Day and Spelling Bee' and the 'Extended Qualification Project'.
