IMG 6224On Tuesday 10th September, 43 Year 8 pupils travelled to Juniper Hall and the River Tillingbourne to collect data for their Common Entrance Coursework. 

Pupils were investigating changes made to a river from the source to the mouth. As a result the boys and girls visited three sites along the River Tillingbourne ; Crossways Farm, Abinger Hammer and Gomshall. 

At each site the students collected data regarding the 'width', 'depth', 'flow velocity' and 'wetted perimeter' of the river bed. A few pupils got a little wet but they all dried off quickly in the glorious sunshine. 

A good day was had by all.

Happy ! Year 6 pupils were studying poems about the seasons in their English class today. The library provided a quiet space to read poems at break and I was treated to a recital of Leila's own poem "Hole Truth". Amazing! Well done Leila!
