Headteacher's Weekly Update

Claydon High School were delighted to welcome two distinguished visitors to the school yesterday, Lord Burnett of Maldon, the Lord Chief Justice and His Honour Judge Rupert Overbury who is the Diversity and Community Relations Judge for Suffolk. They visited Claydon as part of their new initiative to have greater engagement with schools, both secondary and primary, so students learn about the courts and judicial system through lessons and other activities including visits to local courts for school competitions or to see the court sitting.

Tetrahedron Challenge!

Form groups were set the task of producing a giant tetrahedron. The purpose of this was to show what we can do together, to be the best we can be, by using the principles of STEM as the driving force. Each tutor group was given enough dowel and elastic bands to make between two and four mini tetrahedrons. These in turn made a medium sized tetrahedron to be placed together to form one big one! Tutor groups had 20 minutes to build their mini tetrahedrons following some simple instructions given in an assembly.  Year 9 Prefects helped Years 7 & 8 and the Year 10 Student Leadership Team constructed the giant final tetrahedron.  

Despite some wet and wild weather, this task was completed in less than 60 minutes, split across the week. It just goes to show that from a simple concept, something bigger and more powerful can be the end result! Well done to all who took part.
