On Tuesday 4th June a Primary Masterclass took place for Y6 students, this was run by Dr Shilling and Mrs Crawshaw (English and Drama) and was based on "The Tempest" by William Shakespeare. We were exploring the relationship between Caliban and Prospero using our voices and puppetry.  

Huge congratulations: to Minnie Bauer, Freya Elliott, Luisa Gould, Freya Hills. Isabel Lees, Lilia Karn, Emma Kenshole, Grace Sobey, Izzy Smith, Christina Vallance, Melissa Zalick in Year 8 and Tarryn Vallance in Year 9, for winning the local heat of the national Magistrates’ Court Mock Trial Competition, in Plymouth.

The competition helps young people to develop their understanding of criminal law, the criminal justice system and how courts work in a fun and innovative way.

Liskeard School & Community College have a team of Year 7 and 8 Science Leaders. They applied for the student leadership position at the start of the year and participate in leading science activities both within the school and for the local primary schools, aiming to develop their leadership and science skills. Poppy Honeywell, one of our Year 7 science leaders was asked what she enjoyed about the position, “It’s great fun and interesting and I love all of the experiences we get.”

Once again the Science Department at Liskeard School and Community College have embraced National Science and Engineering Week in spectacular style with their annual Science Show. Mr Trudgett and Mr Inger presented a two hour long show which was dynamic and interesting and featured lots of new experiments such as the rainbow flames and elephant’s toothpaste alongside some of our regular favourites.

The pair started on the theme of Energy by demonstrating the effects of cooling using liquid Nitrogen. Several lucky audience members were able to try a cryogenically frozen wotsit or some ice-cream made with liquid Nitrogen.

On Thursday 7th March, Liskeard School and Community College challenged staff and students to come into school dressed as their favourite literary character to celebrate World Book Day. This resulted in some amazing outfits: from Gangsta Granny to Mary Poppins! Certainly a favourite for the students were characters from books by Roald Dahl and David Walliams. Well done to all those who took part - everyone dressing up earned some precious house points.
