STUDENTS of all ages at Robert Blake Science College in Bridgwater have relished the opportunity to experience new and different activities during the latest ‘curriculum day’.

Year 7 youngsters took part in a learning challenge day, designed to teach them new skills to help them become effective learners in secondary school and beyond, while the year above them were wowed by the exhibits at the‘@Bristol science centre.

Students in Year 9 focused on preparing for further education and employment by listening to talks from professionals in the leisure, construction and media industries, and undergoing a CV writing masterclass.

Year 10 students built on the success of London 2012 by taking part in Olympics & Paralympics Day, which combined practical science and PE skills as well as a visit from Robin Williams, who represented Great Britain in blind football, giving students an insight into the lives of the UK’s sporting heroes.

Year 11 students got involved with team-building, problem-solving and communication activities, while hearing practical information on how best to prepare for life after school.

Gregg Morrison, deputy head teacher, said: “The students had a fantastic day and are looking forward to the next curriculum day in March, 2013.”
