A massive well done and thank you to the 50 Year 8’s and Year 9’s who came to the first Photography Club. The students came up with some fantastic ideas based on their theme ‘What Southam means to me’.

Textile Club Update

KS3 Curriculum Newsletter

This Spring term is an important term for students in Years 7, 8, and 9. All students will have to make choices about subjects that they will like to study in the next academic year. This is a chance to spend more time on subjects they enjoy. This newsletter outlines information about these choices, important dates and the support and guidance available to students and their families. For students in Years 7 and 9 the decisions they have to make are very similar to previous years, however for students in Year 8 there is significant change ; this is due to the changes introduced at national level regarding the content and structure of examinations.

Year 9 Science

Up Periscope!!

This week in Science students had an opportunity to show their creative side. Using cardboard, sellotape and mirrors they created their very own periscopes.

Students learnt how mirrors are used in periscopes and how they reflect light.

Well done 9A5

Year 9 Basketball

Southam v Myton

Year 9 played a solid and very tall Myton squad tonight. King, Plugaru, James, Ridges, Usher, Challice, Cave, Timms, Tongue and Fletcher put in a real shift. We were a little slow to start, defensively a little inexperienced and lacked discipline. This allowed them to open up a 14 – 2 lead in the first quarter. Slowly though the boys started to execute the tactical strategy that we’d set out at the start. Fletch, Timms and Challice boxed out very effectively against players of at least 6ft. Offensively creativity came from King, James and Usher trying to catch them on the counter. Things started to click and the squad started to frustrate them taking the score within 4 points at one stage. However, fatigue and the “head start” we’d afforded them told and they came away 33-25 winners.

Well done boys a great game for the neutral.
