Another week and another successful Science club meeting – well, almost…..


As the year 7 and 8 science enthusiasts began to get to grips with some rocket building, a small glitch almost spelt disaster for the meeting!

Instead of building some mini-rockets, the girls got to begin thinking about how best to design their rockets, and discuss the best way to test them.

Should we aim for the highest rocket launch? Or the greatest distance travelled? Or should we aim to launch our rockets as fast as possible?


These are all factors the girls came up with to investigate, and we will be looking at investigating them all in next weeks club! So if you couldn’t make it today, make sure you come along for some rocket building next Thursday! 12.45pm in Science 5 🙂

Miss Gilleece 🙂

Welcome back!

Loreto Science is back , and welcomes everybody to a new year of discovery.
A year of exciting activities is just beginning, so we’d like to invite you to join Miss Gilleece on a journey through the world of Mad science every Thursday at 12:45 in SC5.

This week saw year 7 and 8 students getting to grips with lighting effects. The group enjoyed using prisms and filters to come up with some spectacular images (and stories!) for their light shows – with some trying to act out an X-Factor audition!

The club will hopefully see students gaining a Crest award by the end of the year; some of the topics we will touch on will include rockets and medical physics, alongside a project the girls will design for their Crest award.

So if you haven’t already come, don’t worry!! You can drop in any Thursday, but I’d love to see you there every week! 🙂

See you all next Thursday!

Miss Gilleece
