A day packed with fun activities designed to give girls a taste of life at Queen's. Girls in Year 5 from any school are welcome to come along for this day. The 2018 event will be held on Monday 2 July, enabling girls to experience first-hand the opportunities for learning and enrichment available at Queen's before the Open Morning.

Subject

Activity

Art

The girls explore introductory methods, techniques and tools for printmaking.  The Queen's School offers exceptional printmaking facilities enabling students to work with both relief and intaglio techniques.

IT

Computing is a very popular subject for girls here at Queen’s and our teams do well in regional and even  national competitions. The girls program a Micro:Bit microprocessor to create a step-o-meter; their version of a proto-FitBit. 

Drama

Unleash your inner Drama Queen! The Drama Department worls with the girls on      Melodrama, a Victorian genre which led to the birth of our modern-day pantomime.  They explore exaggerated characters, performances and speech in order to create their own mini-play about heroes, heroines and villains.

Food and

Nutrition

Food and Nutrition is vital to our wellbeing and survival and the girls explore the more creative and artistic elements of this subject.  They bake and decorate a floral medley of cupcakes and allow their imaginations to run wild.

PE

The girls play sports, promoting body-confidence and raising their heart rates.  They are introduced to some techniques for lacrosse - a very popular sport here at Queen's. We regularly win through to the national finals for this exciting team game and we hope the girls enjoyed getting to grips with this new sport.

Science

The sciences are very popular here at Queen's with biology, chemistry and physics all taught separately from Year 7. More than half of our students choose to study one or more of the sciences at A-level. The girls extract DNA from a Kiwi fruit and make a DNA model from jelly babies! 

Mandarin

Ni Hao! Mandarin Chinese is a particular strength here at Queen’s, and every student has the opportunity to study it in Year 7.  The girls enjoy an introduction to the Chinese language and learn a few calligraphy techniques as they create their own panda fans and draw Chinese characters with an authentic brush.  

Music

The girls collaborate and cooperate together in order to record their own song. Music is an integral part of life here at Queen’s, with many opportunities for soloists and group performance.  In Year 7 the girls are able to try out new instruments and are encouraged to join the various choirs and other musical groups that practice and perform in school. 

 

This event is designed for girls to quickly make friends and be put at ease, so please don't worry about girls attending on their own. Girls will need to wear casual, comfortable clothing and trainers. Lunch and other refreshments will be provided free of charge.
