Today Year 11 had Donna from ASK Apprentices in to talk about all the different options they have when they leave school. We found out more about the types of apprenticeships offered and also learned about T Levels 😊
Year 11 have been working so hard in their GCSE Art lessons. We have been looking at the artist Keith Haring and today some students got to create a life-size poster based on his art work! Watch this space to see how this poster turns out! Very proud of you all 🌟 🎨
During PE this half term Primary classes Beech and Birch have been working together in groups in practicing bat and ball skills and learning the skills, rules and techniques of cricket and rounders. The pupils have used this opportunity to share knowledge and experience of their own skills and supported others which were new to the game. During this time, it has gave the younger children time to extend their social circle of friends whilst having fun and staying fit and healthy.
Hazel Class have been working on Fairy Tales in English, this week we created our own characters.
Pupils were asked to think of a goodie and a baddy for their stories.
However, over night something strange happened and they came to life!
If you click on the characters you should be able to see some of the things they were doing.
Inspired by the Artist Annalees Rees and their English book ‘Whizzbang Wizard’, 9R pupils worked on a large scale to create a wizards house of their own. Pupils used decision making and team skills, alongside learning how to join their 3D materials with practical skills. Pupils also learned and applied finishing techniques of paper mache to strengthen their structure and large scale paining to unify their creation. Each pupil then used shape and colour to add architectural features and details to the final model. Well done, class 9R it looks fantastic!
Today some of the pupils in 11M and 11V had a visit to New College Durham. We had a lovely tour of the building and visited some of the different departments and classrooms, Charlotte even got to have a try of a 1927 piano! We found out a lot of helpful information about New College Durham.
Rowan class held a press conference today. They thought of questions they needed to ask for their newspaper report, to ensure their readers got the information necessary. Luckily we had a member of the class who had seen the events unfold there to answer all their questions.
