It was wonderful to welcome our new year 7 students to the Leigh UTC today as they took park in their induction.
Throughout the day students took park in a range of activities that helped them to solve the mystery of the lost Principal. In Science they investigated a crime scene completing a range of forensic experiments.
In English they analysed transcripts and character profiling whilst in Maths they completed probability puzzles based on who they thought the suspects were. Many astute students solved the mystery and found out that cunning Mrs Fox our Careers and LRC manager was the villain.
This was an excellent opportunity for all of our year 7s to experience our interdisciplinary approaches to learning. all students collected class chart points on their IB cogs which will be added to their class chart totals at the start of the year. At the end of the day we proudly awarded certificates linked to our IB character profile to students that had demonstrated these attributes consistently throughout the day.
We are really looking forward to seeing them all again September. We hope that they have enjoyed the day as much as we have.
