  • Dancing our way to the moon

    In our Explore and discover session we got our heart pumping faster whilst learning a dance to "Star Trekking across the universe ......". Some students from the high school came in and taught us the moves in small teams, we practiced and then did the whole performance together as a large group.

    We measured our pulse rate before and after the exercise and worked out that our pulse rate was getting higher because more oxygen had to get all around our bodies to help us exercise.

    We stopped for toast half way through so that we had some more energy to keep going!

    Mission Controller Mrs Charmain Dunham is pleased to report on the huge amount of activities being undertaken by Year 7 students at MMCC. Following our exciting launch day we have now completed all the science missions. The PE department has been encouraging students to take part in all the PE missions. We have extended them to include the Cooper Run and we have been lucky enough to use the Romeera Leisure Centre gym for some of our fitness activities. Students are heading off to Birmingham for the Big Bang Fair. Great news too that Bridget the Mars Rover is visiting the school for our landing day on March 27th. It's all go here in Stansted. The glorious Spring weather has meant that we have had a chance to train outdoors on our lovely green grass!

    Hockerill Anglo European College

    Sixth form students from Hockerill are preparing to welcome international students to the UK as part of Mission X London 2012. They are currently helping students in year 7 with their Mission X activities. However, their role is set to widen as they help with the hosting and welcoming our international friends to London. They are a talented group - between them they speak Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Italian, German, French and of course English. They have a range of interests too - budding astro-physicists, economists, aerospace engineers, doctors, translaters and musicians. They are looking forward to helping out with MIssion X as part of their IB course.
