In the Maths department this week, Year 7 brought in family recipes. Students used the recipe to apply understanding of direct proportion and ratio. They scaled up the recipes to plan for a celebration feast. The Maths skills extended to converting between imperial and metric, converting kitchen measures to metric and best-buy problems; and we learnt more about the diversity and traditions in our classrooms.

In the Business department our Year 9 Business students were given the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and understanding of local entrepreneurs and products hailing from Brent. They were challenged to research famous entrepreneurs from Brent, and then present the information in a suitable format. They had to include some relevant information about the entrepreneur and their products or services. The girls were amazing and worked well as a team to put together their individual research into posters and PowerPoints featuring entrepreneurs within Brent such as Julian Hall, Ade Hassan, Michelle Bailey and Jerry Roberts.

In the Science Department this week, our Year 10 students were assigned the task to research and prepare posters on the incidence of non-communicable diseases in the UK with a special focus on the current status of health and well-being of our local community, Brent. This assignment was designed as an opportunity for students to engage with the issues that could have a direct and at times indirect effect on their own personal health and happiness. In keeping with this thought, students summarised highlights on the prevalence of non-communicable diseases in Brent and outlined practices that could have beneficial implications on our lives.
