C22 Expert Visits

Students in C22 have recently enjoyed a visit from a number of experts in connection with their current expedition ‘War! What is it good for?’ and to help them answer the guiding question ‘How has conflict shaped out world?’. Firstly, students experienced what it was like to be soldiers in WW1 with a visit from Doncaster Museum where they participated in trench cooking and trench building. Students also handled a number of WW1 artefacts and weapons and had the opportunity to have their burning questions answered by a second WW1/2 expert. Finally, students have had the chance to take part in a session delivered by the Doncaster Conversation Club who work with local asylum seekers and refugees to enhance their understanding of how and why people flee war-torn countries. Great work from all in C22!

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.
