Well done to the students for completing day 1 of the summer camp for Science today. Microscopy and cells ...you smashed it. Hope you remember your onions and your liver and potato experiments. A credit to your school.

In Biology we have replaced chicks with cress seeds. Year 7 have designed suitable environments to germinate and grow the best cress. Each class has a week to look after their environments and see who can grow the tallest. https://t.co/HP7EoIhb6o

Black History Month

Black History MonthWe celebrate Black History Month in the UK in October and at Aureus we spent time in our coaching groups exploring what Black History Month is and how it is relatable to us as a school - namely exploring what it means to diversify the curriculum, a much spoken about topic following the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter campaign both in the UK and the US. Students have had the opportunity to write a letter to our local MP, David Johnston, to explain if and why they think changes should be made to the curriculum and how black history has its place in the National Curriculum. 

Originally founded to recognise the contributions that people of African and Caribbean backgrounds have made to this country over many generations, Black History Month has now expanded to include the history of not just Afro-Caribbean black people but all black people in general.

First launched in London in the 1980s, the aim was for the local community to challenge racism and educate themselves and others about the British history that was not taught in schools.
