Pupils in Year 7 took part in the annual ‘Cells Competition’, in which pupils were tasked to create an animal or plant cell of their choice in the form of a model.

Pupils were challenged to be as creative as possible, and the entries didn’t disappoint. We had some fabulous cakes, Lego models and lots of marvellous structures.

This year, a number of students used recycled material for the entries, with everyone in the science department impressed at the pupil’s efforts. Due to this, we decided it was impossible to choose just a 3rd, 2nd or 1st winner. So, we choose to award winners for the wide variety of competition categories, including:

  • Best 3D model
  • Most scientific
  • Most colourful
  • Most detailed

This year each class had 3rd and 2nd place winners; both winning an additional certificate and chocolate prize. The 1st place winners for each class were awarded an additional certificate, chocolate as well as the shine homework postcard.

A massive well done to Year 7, who made this year’s competition a fantastic event and one that was exceptionally difficult to judge!
