Child Development Practical

Year 10 Child Development students enjoyed a very hands-on lesson on Thursday, when they discovered for themselves how creative play helps toddlers to develop key skills.  Students enjoyed creating loom band bracelets , decorating biscuits and fingerpainting.  They correctly identified some of the developmental skills which these activities engender in young children.

Year 8 Rugby Success

The squad travelled to Durham to compete against Durham Johnston, St Leonards, Dene and St Johns.  

The team were without the injured Joe Dent and lost Joe Mott to injury inthe first game but still managed to play very well.  They managed to beat St Johns, Durham Johnston and Dene before losing to the winner St Leonards.

The whole squad were fantastic on the night.  Jamie Wills, Joshua Duarte, Adam Williamson, Edward Birch and Ben Platten all led by example. The team now look forward to their County Cup game on March 3rd against Outon Manor in Hartlepool.

Well done boys!

The Battle of Hastings

History has been in action for Year 7 students.  Mrs Theaker recently created a lesson based on the Norman invasion of England.  Students re-enacted some of the major roles including those of Duke William and King Harold. 

The script, written by Mrs Theaker was delivered with much enthusiasm by students and really brought to life the battle of Hastings for them.
