Year 5 and 6 Science and Innovation in Nottingham

On Thursday last week, pupils in Years 5 and 6 had a day out of school looking at science and innovation in Nottingham.

In the morning, we visited the ‘Urban Room’ at 38 Carrington Street. Urban Rooms like this one are part of a growing network throughout the UK to provide a dedicated space “where people can go understand, debate and get involved in the past, present and future of where they live, work and play”. 38 Carrington Street is an independent partnership between Nottingham City Council, University of Nottingham, Historic England, Nottingham and Derby Society of Architect and Royal Institute of British Architects. Whilst we were here, we were shown a presentation on the industrial heritage of Nottingham; discussed all the amazing products, innovations and brands that originated in Nottingham; and then went on a walking tour of the city.

In the afternoon, we visited the creative and virtual technologies lab and the 3D printing workshop at Nottingham Trent University.The lab is a multidisciplinary research environment where architects, artists, designers, engineers, computer scientists and human scientists collaborate to explore the potential of new visualisation techniques and digital design models and processes. We explored the cutting-edge technologies found in the lab including: visualisation technologies (augmented reality, mixed reality, virtual reality), tracking systems, human computer interaction systems and audio devices and BIM/3D modelling/rendering software.

Year 6 Spanish ‘Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’

If there is an opportunity to sing, dance and learn all at the same time, you can be sure that Miss Nisan will be involved! Last week, pupils in Year 6 learnt ‘Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’ in Spanish whilst practising the merengue style of dance.

Pop Mime

The first half of Spring Term can be a difficult one for pupils in Senior School with mock exams, reports, Parents’ Evenings and so on, so we like to finish for February Half Term with a bit of fun.

‘Pop Mime’ is an annual Hollygirt tradition where pupils from Years 7 to 11 can put themselves forward in groups or as a solo act to mime to a song of their choice. Pupils not taking part in the performance pay £1 to watch their peers and all money raised goes to charity. This year, the chosen charity was Framework.

Best Mime – Amy, Year 7
Best Dance – Leo, Year 7
Best Team – Year 8
Best Overall Performance – Year 11
