The co-curricular programme at Nexus has been running for 5 weeks now and the students have been getting stuck into lots of new and exciting activities.
In Technology club the students are learning how to programme small computers so they can create LED displays. Last week in Maths Enrichment the students were learning how the stock market works by using real world data to predict the price of commodities as market conditions fluctuate. The Astronomy GCSE class are working with Dr and Mrs MacIntosh and are now being supported by Annabel, a STEM leader from Nexus VI. Beginners Mandarin students have been enjoying learning a totally new language while our more experienced Intermediate group are continuing to develop and extend their vocabulary. Their teacher, Mrs Fedorchenko, is also making sure they have plenty of opportunities to learn more about the chinese culture and way of life as well. Finally, the student-run Scribblers club have been sharing their thoughts about the latest must read book.
This is only a small selection of the many things going on at Nexus in co-curricular time, with students involved in a huge range of activities from robotics to independent research for science fair projects and Philosophy club to working on extended homework tasks in Maths and Science, and of course the weekly chess tournament is hotting up.
We are looking forward to welcoming the parents and carers of Nexus 7 to the Christmas Showcase evening later in the term when the students will be able to show off some of the amazing things they have done so far.
