Winter Warmers

Over four different mornings in early December all of the Year 3 children from Cliftonville Primary School visited King Ethelbert School and the students from Year 5 visited Hartsdown Academy and used their food technology departments to create soup and pizza respectively. They had designed recipes as part of their DT unit on food and nutrition. The children were taken through the cooking process step by step.  All the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and learnt lots of great safety tips for being in the kitchen.  They all enjoyed the soup and pizza that they made and many shared it with their parents when they went home at the end of the day.

“Just a quick email to say a massive thank you for having us!  All the children had a fantastic time and really enjoyed making their soups.  Hoping we can do the same again next year!  Thanks again.” Mr Kirby Year 3 Teacher

Faraday Challenge

On Wednesday 3rd May, King Ethelbert School hosted a “Faraday Challenge” for twelve of our Year 8 students, who were accompanied by twelve students from Royal Harbour Academy and another twelve from Hartsdown Academy.

This is a national competition run by the Institute for Engineering, where students are challenged to design a prototype of a product as a solution to a current real life problem.

All students had a great day and learnt a lot from Phil Hart, the engineer tasked with running the day.

It was great to get schools from within the Coastal Academies Trust together for a day full of learning about how to make the world a better place.

They battled it out to see who could make the best design and …….

A huge well done to the final winners who were group 3 from Royal Harbour Academy!
