In February JMHS students were privileged to be the first school to take part in a nationwide project teaching young people about bell ringing. Six local professionals spent the day teaching year 7 and year 8 students about how to bell ring, how it works and the theory behind it. The project has funded an incredible structure (pictured) built to simulate ringing a tower bell without being in the tower that pupils can learn on safely. The day was fascinating, with pupils learning about how to create the patterns needed to ring, hand bell ringing, learning about how a bell works using a small model and then getting to have a go on the simulator! All pupils enjoyed learning about something unusual that we would normally cover in lessons.
