Blog week ending 7th December
We are thrilled to report that one of our WG6 students has been successfully elected to represent Dartford in The Kent Youth County Council. Jonathan B is an excellent role model and a fine ambassador for the school. With a great interest in Politics (he even enjoys teaching his fellow students in his A Level lessons) and a passion to pursue a career at Westminster, we await with anticipation his calling into mainstream politics, where he can be assured of a great following from his peers in Wilmington.
Mr Powell’s Y8 Physics students have been investigating forces. During a practical lesson students learnt about different ‘pushes’ and ‘pulls’ that arise from contact forces. Students hypothesised the force between two objects in a range of situations. Using items such as bubble wrap, sandpaper and wood they tested their hypotheses by measuring the force required to pull a (constant) weight.
