Successful Year 6 taster day

Last Thursday the year 6 students who are joining Townsend in September all came in for a "Taster Day" with different session run throughout the day to show what life at Townsend is like.

Subjects students took part in included PE with a game of rounders, French (learning the alphabet), Art (drawing sweets), Media studies (learning media conventions and terms), Science (making Magnesium Oxide), Music (creating rhythms in groups), Drama (learning skills in games) and Food Technology, making cookies, which were given out to the whole group in the afternoon before going home.  Students also met STEP who work closely at Townsend, and were also reacquainted with their form tutors for an ice breaker session.

A big thank you to all the staff who supported and ran sessions on the day, and a huge thank you to Miss Scott who organised everything ready for the sessions.

We look forward to seeing all the year 6 students in their purple Townsend blazers in September!!
