For Geography we started to learn about weather as well as climate and the difference between the two. The children had to choose between the climate area (Mrs Devlin) and weather area (Mrs Kennedy) after reading statements. Over the next few weeks we will be looking at the worlds climate zones.
Some of our Year 11 PFA group organized and set out afternoon tea for some of the PTA group to say a very big thankyou for everything they do for our School. During this time it has helped the pupils develop so many skills and prepare them for leaving school this year including building confidence, self esteem, working as part of a team, listening and following instructions, community inclusion, personal safety and health and hygiene whilst preparing food. One of the pupils said ” I really enjoyed this it has built my confidence being around people I don’t know”. Everyone had a lovely time and lots of good food and chat. Thank you once again PTA
Students in Year 11 have been busy working on their fantastic art pieces. Pupils were able to choose their own contemporary issue, whether social or political and create a piece of artwork surrounding this topic. From Women’s Rights, Animal Rights, LGBTQIA+, Climate Change and the Holocaust, Year 11 have been working especially hard. Very proud of your efforts Year 11’s!!
Today marked the rebirth of our Outdoor Ed area! Thank you to everyone who supported us on the day and helped to make it such a success: the adults – Joan, Daniel, Kevan, Kay and Kevin, John, John, James and the PTA (who kept us hydrated and fed); the pupils (primary and secondary) for for all their energy and hard work. Thank you Morrisons for supplying us with some lovely healthy snacks. Together we created some beautifully crafted wooden bird tables, planted broad beans, strawberries and chives; sowed courgettes, radishes, lettuces, beetroot; potted on coriander, kale and parsley; and sowed a wild flower meadow! An awesome compost bay and bug hotel were also created for us from pallets.
Local Councillors, Joan, Christine and Daniel have been very generous with funding for the area – thank you!
The development of the outdoor education area will be updated on the blog so please keep an eye out and let’s see how much we can grow!
