Third Form students make weather instruments for prep!

The Third Form have been making their own weather instruments as part of their weather and climate unit of study.

Natasha Prankerd has been very impressed with her class' efforts too, with a wide range of weather instruments made. I would like to pass on the department's thanks to the parents and guardians who supported the students with this project.

See what some of the students had to say about their work:

"This project was fun to do, especially as I tested out my project during the current storm. It was great because it worked!" – Maisy Warren

"This was good fun. I enjoyed testing it out in the wind last night." – Oliver Davis

"Mine was a thermometer attached to balloons. This was inspired by a film I watched in Mr Curtis-Dyke's lesson where a weather balloon went up into the troposphere." – Eddy Binks

There were some fantastic pieces of equipment made. One student spent three hours with his father making an anemometer!
