Year 9 riding across Blackfrairs Bridge on the cycle superhighway to the London Eye then on to Vauxhall and back to School.
Year 7's who are interested in engineering and programming went on a guided tour of Tower Bridge and then took part in a coding workshop. The tour looked at the history of Tower Bridge, who built it and how. There was also a chance to go up on the bridge and look through the glass floor below. The coding workshop involved building a model of the bridge and then coding a small computer to raise and lower the bridge model.
Our host for the day, The Bank of New York Mellon, delivered The Trading Game workshop to Year 9 who were fully engaged as they were responsible for buying and selling stocks, essentially trying to make as much money as possible. They were highly excited at the prospect of being traders for a few hours, showing their organisational, analytical and leadership skills, working effectively in a team environment. Well done Boys!
