Emma Walker, semi-finalist in the BBC’s Junior Apprentice 2010, came to talk to Year 10 PSHE students at Portland Place on Friday 23 September. She now runs two businesses and is in full-time education, so she had a great deal to share with the students about her experiences on and off the small screen. She encouraged the Year 10s to think carefully about their Work Experience placements which the students have to source themselves.

Year 9 Flour Babies Egg Baby Project (18 images)
Year 9 Flour Babies Egg Baby Project On October 14th 2011, Miss Wilson’s English class took up the challenge to take care of a hard-boiled egg all day as if it were their own child. They had to keep it safe and take it with them to all their lessons. If they could not take them to a particular lesson, a suitable baby-sitter had to be found! This project is based on the play Flour Babies that we have been studying, in which a science class of boys have to take care of bags of flour for two weeks in order to learn the responsibilities of bringing up a child. At the end of our day-long project, only four eggs out of ten returned in one piece! Well done to Jordan Akester, Nathan Perlman, Alex Stedman and Edward Trebilcock who proved the best Egg Parents!
