Year 10 Chemistry

November 19th, 2020 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Gallery | News - (0 Comments)

Year 10 students Josh Beadle, Lucas Turner and Thomas Morcom making the salt sodium chloride using a technique called a titration. It involves the particularly tricky use of a pipette filler (as demonstrated) by Josh to measure the sodium hydroxide solution. They all did really well and carried out the practical perfectly.

It was great to be back in school and see everybody this first half term, although we have all been socially distancing, something makes everyone feel closer and more part of the St Joseph’s family than ever!

At the beginning of term with European day of languages, all of the prefects helped out in different ways, whether it was hiding dolls or taking photos, the day was a big success.

School council met just before half term and a number of great ideas from all years were put forward, so we are planning to meet again in the next couple of weeks to discuss what actions we can take to make the ideas possible.

The prefect team have been working hard and helping staff by helping with after school prep on a number of occasions and generally helping out with whatever is needed. Over this past half term we have been really proud of the Year 8 deputy prefects who have managed the prefect roles in their bubbles. Those students are, Ella, Lowen, Oscar, Max, Hollie, Rosie, Grace , Will and Jack.

Looking forward to this half term, Children in Need day will be another big success and although limited in the range of activities we can do, the prefect team has helped to make sure everybody plays their part and gets involved.
