On Monday, we held our virtual Induction Day for the new First and Second Form students joining us in September. As we were unable to host them on site, we created a fun, interactive day online. Firstly, our students met the Head of Juniors, Mr Carr, along with their new tutor and their fellow new tutees. They then had a full day of interactive lessons and meet-and-greets, as well as the chance to discover what was inside their hand-delivered boxes, which included their house t-shirt.
In one of the interactive lessons, Mr Kirk, Head of Design and Technology, tasked our new students with creating a vehicle using a rubber band and things they could find around the house, making sure it was sturdy enough that it could carry a lump of plasticine. He commented, “the Design and Technology department would like to thank all of the students who rose to the challenge during the recent Induction Day. Students were resourceful with their materials and effectively put these to use when designing and creating a rubber-band powered vehicle. I’m sure many of these students will continue to experiment with weight distribution, methods for enhancing power, speed, and direction of travel, and will strive to get their vehicle to travel even greater distances.”
We look forward to welcoming all of our new students to Sutton Valence School in September.
