Rainbow Class Assembly

Rainbow class took their parents, teachers and school friends on a journey through the sea, with amazing shark facts and shark songs. The story of Shark in the Park based on the book by Nick Sharratt featured a crow, a cat,

and a shark all viewed through Timothy Pope’s telescope. It was a pleasure to see the children so happy and excited to share their learning with everyone.

Key Stage 2 Sports Day

Key Stage 2 take the football field for their annual Sport’s Day. Year 5 and 6 started with track events, competing in 400, 200 and 100 meters, before ending with the relays. On the inside of the track, there were 15 events such as the long jump, standing triple jump and shot put. The children had their passports stamped after each event, with complete cards earning their house five points.

Each year group then battled it out in a tug of war competition, before the parents beat the teachers in the same event. Thankfully the teacher’s pride was restored when Mrs Clarke won the 100m sprint.

Year 9 Geodome Project

Year 9 maths classes made geodesic domes from recycled newspapers. First, each group had to make 65 tubes, cut to the correct “long” or “short” length (good practise understanding how a production line works) then follow the instruction to construct the dome within an hour. We made 8 domes altogether. Geodesic domes are used for sports halls, greenhouses and many other buildings as they are aesthetically pleasing to look at and a good use of space.

Speed Info Session for Year 11

DBGS Senior School held a very successful speed information session between year 11 and Sixth form students. The session started with our university counselor, Mr Swords, and a short presentation on university application and course selection. During the sessions, year 11 students were asking questions about the various subjects offered at our A-Level programme so they can make an informed decision when choosing their A-Level subjects.
