As part of our Easter celebrations, 9R explored natural and man-made dyes. We wrapped eggs in onion skin and boiled them; as well as boiling eggs in brightly coloured dyes of the pupils’ choice. Pupils looked at the finished eggs to see which had been the most effective.
9R had a lot of fun trying out a traditional Easter game of egg jarping. Pupils chose one of our beautifully dyed eggs and rolled it down a ramp to see which ones would survive and which would get smashed. The least damaged egg wins!
A group of pupils participated in a Boccia competition at Spennymoor Leisure Centre. They all had a brilliant day and came 3rd overall. Well done ‘The Oaks’
We had another busy afternoon in the Up-Cycling group.
We finished our Space Desk today. It has height adjustable legs and has been glazed in three coats of clear waterproof varnish – making it the perfect desk or work table to a bedroom. We think it is out of this world!!
Our Space Table is available to be sold. We will put further details of the table and its price on our selling page.
We also started work on our two kitchen stools – one of which is designed to hold a bottle of wine and two glasses. This project has been commissioned by a member of staff, who would like us to give the two stools a ‘horsey’ theme!! Ride on Cowboy!!
On Friday, the military fitness group joined some of the CHAD year 11s to go hiking up the Auckland Way. We walked from school to the near Binchester. We walked four miles in under two hours…
We deserved our weekend break. Until next time.
