We have decided to postpone C23’s fieldwork to Flamborough Head that was scheduled for this Friday 16th of March. The weather forecast predicts strong winds and heavy rain and having completed a risk assessment, we have decided that it would not be wise to continue with the trip.

We will instead reschedule the visit for Skipper to Tuesday 20th March. Please see our original post on fieldwork requirements for the day.

During the first week back C23 students will be going on fieldwork to the East Yorkshire Coast to investigate the impact of nature on the land. On Wednesday the 14th March Admiral will be going followed by Skipper on Friday 16th March. Students will spend time on the beach at both locations.

We will be leaving at 8.45am and will return to school between 3.30pm and 4pm depending on the traffic. Students will be out of school all day and as a result will need a packed lunch and warm clothing – we would recommend that students have at least 3 layers- as well as a waterproof coat. Students who receive free school meals will be provided with a packed lunch.

If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Next week Year 8 students in their Drama X-block will be having a dress rehearsal for their Presentation of Learning where they will be presenting scenes from Romeo and Juliet. As a result we would appreciate if students could bring a change of dark coloured clothes on the day they have Drama (if possible on a coat hanger) and then leave these clothes in school after the dress rehearsal as their costume for the evening.

The final Presentation of Learning will be held on 20th July at 5.30pm.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Globe 2As part of Year 8’s next expedition entitled ‘Rebellion’ we have organised a visit to see a production of Romeo and Juliet at the Globe Theatre in London on Wednesday 10 May. Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre is built near to the site of the original theatre made famous by Shakespeare and his company who performed many of the bard’s plays for the first time at this venue in the 17th Century! The performance venue has been reconstructed in the style of an Elizabethan theatre and captures the magic and excitement of this period. This is an amazing opportunity for our students to see a live theatre performance in one of the world’s greatest and most sought after venues.

Globe 1We will leave at 8.00am on Wednesday 10 May, travel down to London by coach and watch a matinee performance at 2pm of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. We will return straight after the performance and arrive back in Doncaster at approximately 9.30pm, traffic permitting.Students will need to bring a packed lunch for the journey down to London and either another packed lunch or some money for the services on the way home. Any students who may suffer from travel sickness need to take medication before we leave and have additional medication to take for the journey home.
