COCKERMOUTH SCHOOL NEWS ~ FIRST YEAR 5 EXPERIENCES FOR THE ACADEMIC YEAR ~


We welcomed almost 150 Year 5 students from our feeder primary schools to take part in a range of activities around the theme of Harry Potter,


organised by our Science department.


Students used their wands (temperature probes) to establish where Lord Voldemort had hidden the Philosopher’s Stone, they helped Neville Longbottom get his potions in order by conducting a series of flame tests to determine the crucial ingredients, they assisted Hermione by making some flesh-eating slug slime for Professor Lupin and finally they used chromatography to identify the Slytherin who had kidnapped Ron Weasley.


A huge thanks to the Science department technicians who went to great lengths to create an engaging and stimulating environment. The attention to detail in producing numerous Harry Potter- themed items, including platform 9¾ with shopping trolley and owl, was a delight to see.


The Year 5 students engaged fully with the WWW.THECOCKERMOUTHPOST.CO.UK


challenge and we were very impressed by their concentration, enthusiasm and scientific knowledge. To see students entering the classrooms full of wonder, whilst collecting their invisibility cloaks, was a real highlight.


Behind all the fun and the excitement, there are some important reasons for running such events. It is great to be able to get the primary school students into our science laboratories and to give them a


flavour of the activities and experiments that they will be able to experience in a secondary school environment. Just as important though, it helps massively with the transition to secondary school.


We have been fortunate enough to be welcomed into our brilliant feeder primary schools for many years and we really value that link and the opportunity to see on a regular basis our prospective students. The move from primary school to secondary school is a big change for everyone involved but it is also the most exciting of times and a great opportunity.

By having cross-phase events like these, we look to take some of the mystery out of the move to Cockermouth School. The time that students are with us during events in Year 5 and Year 6 means that they are much more prepared and confident about the challenges that lie ahead.


The pupils are already looking forward to our Year 5 robotics and computing event at the end of March, which will provide more opportunities and


enjoyment for what already look like a fantastic bunch of Year 5 students.
