Year 10 Netball

Last night Southam College Year 10 netball team went to Princethorpe for what proved to be an intense game of netball. Both teams played amazing with excellent feeds from the centre court players – Nicole Sparkes, Caitlin Thomas, Jeri Jenkins, Maisie Powell and Eve Rea. Jess Frogley, Eve Murphy and Eloise Merrell played well rotating the shooting, working as a team to work the ball into the net. Sophie Kirk and Rosie Hill managed to work well together in defence slowing the Princethorpe feeds down into the attacking circle. Caitlin Thomas was a well deserved player of the match who was in control throughout the game, intercepting regularly and providing excellent feeds into the Southam shooting circle. In the end Princethorpe took a strong lead with their fast and sharp play and although a 29-7 loss, the score didn’t reflect the overall play. A solid game for Southam with some really nice play and whole team effort.

Well done girls!

Science at Southam

Year 10 have been learning about the transition metals and their properties.  They used play dough to model the strong electrostatic attractions between metal cations and delocalised electrons and how these give metals a high melting point.

Well done Year 10!
