Meet an Astronaut Trip

Meet an Astronaut Trip

Tuesday 12th July 14 students chosen by the science department for their effort, progress and enthusiasm for science got to go to Chandlers Field Primary School in West Molesey to meet Dr Helen Sharman OBE, the first British astronaut and the first woman to visit the Mir Space Station.

Rydens Enterprise School RES Students

The teachers at Chandlers Field had very kindly invited our students to attend the speech given by Helen and had also asked for them to lead some stalls at their Space Fair afterwards. We were really lucky that our students also got to have individual question and answer time with Helen and then later got signatures and selfies with her.

Here are some quotes from the students who were lucky enough to attend this exciting event:

We were especially selected for our achievements in science, we did some experiments with fizzy drinks for the students using Mentos, vinegar and bicarbonate of soda, which they loved. It was a really fun trip.
Dylan (Year 7)

When I met Helen Sharman I realised how hard it is to become an astronaut, you need to be good at science, engineering, languages and be really fit. Helen told us about her training in Russia, it sounded really interesting.
Tom (Year 7)

The talk from Helen Sharman was really interesting, she explained things well and did demonstrations. After the fascinating talk we went outside and set up our RES stall. We had different experiments going on. We were able to get a picture with Helen and a signature. I thoroughly enjoyed the RES Science trip and especially the talk from Helen.

This was a fantastic opportunity for our budding scientists and so big thanks to Chandlers Field staff for organising it and for Mr McLennan for inviting our students to participate, it was a very inspiring afternoon.

Sad News of the death of an RES student

We were deeply saddened to hear the tragic news about the death of one of our students Dominick Naylor. Our thoughts and condolences are with Dominick’s family and those who were closest to him. I would like to reassure students, parents and carers that we have clear plans in place to support all members of our school community at this difficult time.  If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Spanish Play for Years 9 & 10

Spanish Play for Years 9 & 10

On Wednesday April 20th, the Onatti Theatre Company visited RES to perform a play to help Year 9 and 10 students with their Spanish GCSE.

Onatti Theatre Company at Rydens School

"Primera Cita is a funny show about two Spanish teenagers going on their first date. The characters, Maria and Carlos, show us how a first date shouldn’t go as the first phone call is as awkward as expected and the preparations for the night out don’t go well. Carlos decides to attempt to shave for the first time as Maria frantically searches through her clothes looking for the perfect outfit. To help her to decide between a sparkly dress, stripy tights and many other vivid items, Maria asks a volunteer from the audience up onto the stage to give her advice!

Onatti Theatre Company at Rydens School

During the date Maria and Carlos go to the cinema but end up sitting apart so that they can see. Maria flirted with some Year 10 boys chosen to make up the cinema audience and Carlos got very jealous.

It was a very interactive show and the Spanish was quite easy to follow.  I would recommend it to anyone learning Spanish as it was a fun and enjoyable way to learn."
