Beautiful work by Class of 23

Year 7 have been working closely with Age UK in their current expedition Spread A Little Happiness. They have done service learning by playing games with users of Age UK in Sprotbrough and Armthorpe and found out what they like. Students then made “Kindness boxes” for their person with the things they like in.

Here are the beautiful boxes…

Year 7 Expert

Today, Colin from Age UK has been teaching Year 7 students about Dementia. At the end of the presentation students chose whether they Pledge to become a Dementia Friend. Dementia friends is a project run by Alzheimer’s Society to help everyone understand dementia so that people can live well with dementia and feel part of the community.

Year 7 Immersion in January

I am pleased to announce that Year 7 Humanities and Arts Immersion for the next expedition is to the Houses of Parliament in London.

Both Skipper and Admiral will need to be at school for 6.15am on 4th January and we are due to arrive back 7.30-8pm depending on traffic.

All students (bar those on free school meals) need to bring a packed lunch.  Students may want to bring some money with them, as there will be an opportunity to buy something to eat on the way home during the stop at the service station.

We ask that students dress smartly for this visit, no jogging bottoms, hoodies, football shirts or hats of any form.
