Gillespie news: new recruit & book review

February 21, 2017

The New Recruit

Out of the blue we were sent a letter from an aspiring young scientist who wanted to be a member of our committee. This was unexpected because it is the middle of the year and the interviews have already taken place. We felt like this young scientist’s letter was very thoughtful and she had loads of experience of a lot of clubs and organisations including engineering within the school. We were awestruck by the letter and so we decided to let her in to the next stage: the interview. During the interview we asked her many questions about her commitment to the committee and her experience and skills. We asked her questions based on our aspirations for a fab committee member that we came up with in the morning:


She is very kind to others and always includes people and gets along with others. We could tell that she is a committed and hard-working scientist. That’s why we want her in the committee. Welcome Nimo!

Science book review: Itchitch

Recently I have read a book called “Itch” by Simon Mayo. It is about a boy called Itchingham Lofte who is an element hunter and is very adventurous and brave. He is very cheeky and takes many risks with his elements for example one day he takes some arsenic wallpaper into school. Page after page you will see plenty of action and adventure but still lots of humour.

Written by Daniel (Y6), Zac (Y5) and Naomi (Y5)

P.S. Next week we will be writing about our latest tool, which was donated to the lab by Zac today! Carole has tried it out and made this with it, can you guess what our new tool is?
