Daily Living Skills

This afternoon, my year 10 Transition Challenge group have been talking about different household jobs that they help with at home. We then tried our hand at ironing. Most students were a little nervous at first, as they were worried about burning themselves. However, they all watched a demonstration carefully, and followed instructions perfectly. Well done, year 10 – you all did a fantastic job! 👏👏👏

Important – Covid 19

We currently have a number of staff and pupils who have tested positive for Covid 19. We are trying to keep everyone safe by having class or year group ‘bubbles’, opening windows, not sharing equipment, doing at least twice weekly lateral flow tests, speaking regularly to Public Health and having an enhanced cleaning regime.
We are also asking everyone to wear face coverings around school, inline with the newly amended advice from the government and to regularly wash and sanitise their hands.  Could you please help us by encouraging your child to follow these rules.

Please contact us if you have any queries. Thank you for your support

Number Bonds

Some pupils in 10D have been working hard learning their number bonds to 10 and 20. They used part-whole models to work out pairs of numbers that add up to 10 or 20. Next we will work on rapid recall if these number pairs.

8H – children in need

We all wore yellow/non-uniform for children in need today, with our room decorated with Pudsey faces we made yesterday.

6th form Recycling

Some of our students in their vocational group have been fashion designers, using only recyclable materials. They are very proud of their finished items!

Anti-bullying awareness week

After learning about Anti-bullying in our Rights Respecting Schools lessons, students and staff decided to help raise awareness within school by wearing odd socks for the national anti-bullying week.  This leads into the work that our Student Council are currently involved in, which is reviewing and developing how the school supports such an important subject as anti-bullying.  Well done to all who joined in to help raise awareness this week!

Duke of Edinburgh groups continue in their efforts to keep our coastline clean!

The Bronze, Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh groups have continued in their efforts to keep our beaches litter free. They have shown an excellent attitude towards our weekly beach cleaning sessions and are well on their way to achieving the volunteering section of their award. Well done and thank you!

 

8H – Rights Respecting Schools

This week in our RRS lesson we focused on anti-bullying. As a class we looked at different examples of kind and unkind behaviour on the board. We then worked 1:1 to sort a full list of behaviours into friendly or bullying. A couple of our main friendly behaviours were sharing and helping others; so we got out a couple of games to play together. One really tests our fine motor skills; it can be a bit fiddly, so we all helped each other to put the pieces together.
