Class Swap Day

This week children in the Pre-Prep and Prep have enjoyed class swap and transition days. This was a great opportunity for the children to meet their new teachers and for children joining Webber in September to meet their classmates.

In Mr Jeacock's Year 4 lesson the children created their own runes of their name as part of the History topic 'Anglo Saxons, Romans and Vikings'.

Chemistry at Work


Year 8 Science and Year 9 Chemistry students recently attended a Chemistry at Work workshop at the Milton Keynes City Discovery Centre. They saw eight different demonstrations, including experiments with oxygen and how snails, slugs and worms use chemistry to live. The students also learnt about how chemistry is used in the cosmetics industry and much more. The trip showed them how Chemistry is used in the ‘real world’ and that it isn’t just a subject you learn about in school. The students thoroughly enjoyed the trip and hope to go back to the Discovery Centre again next year.
