A ‘taste’ of secondary school

19th June 2013

The Chatham & Clarendon Grammar School Federation opened its doors to over 400 Y5 primary school students during the first two weeks of June, giving pupils a real insight into secondary school life.

Taster sessions, led by the science & technology departments, allowed students to develop a range of skills whilst improving their own understanding of the subjects. Pupils had the opportunity to make a fortune in Science during the ‘panning for gold’ activity, bake a scrumptious apple & cinnamon rock cake in the high-tech ‘Master-Chef’ style Food Technology room  & fabricate their very own pewter key fob with the Product Design team. Fun was had by all!

Feedback from visiting staff - The children had an amazing time and a very worthwhile learning experience, which also fitted in with so many of the curriculum topics that we are studying at the moment.” 

If you are interested in your school becoming involved in next year’s Y5 outreach programme (2nd June 2014 onwards) please email kparkins@ccgrammarschool.co.uk
