A journey into the Royal Marines’ Band
Below you can watch a video that follows our former head boy, Jack Bell, during his week auditions for a place in the Royal Marines’ Band. I am delighted to be able to tell you that Jack has secured a place within this most prestigious unit and is currently undertaking his studies. This video follows him and two of his fellow recruits during this most challenging week where he was put to the test for his musical ability as well as being able to meet the physical demands of being a Royal Marine.
Your best shot Fun Friday
Last week we challenged students and staff to share videos of their best shot – you can see them below. Mr Bindon hasn’t forgiven me yet for the snowball…
You can also find the challenge for next week’s Fun Friday at the end of the video, clue: it is pancake related!
Stars of the Term
Teachers have been nominating Stars of the Term in their subjects for this half term, both in school and at home. Congratulations to everyone who was presented with an award this morning.
Hot chocolate and chocolate Fun Friday!
What better way to end a half term, especially on a cold day, than with lots of hot chocolate and chocolate!
Enrichment activities at home
It’s been another busy week at home for our students! The winners of this week’s £10 vouchers are Kieran Towell, Will Reed and Leon Bell.
Will Reed in 9P has been regularly litter picking each week working towards his bronze Duke of Edinburgh award for the volunteering section. He has been shocked by the amount of discarded face masks which are a sad consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please dispose of them responsibly!! This bag was just one hours worth of litter collection.
Year 7 Pasties!
The Year 7s have been very busy in the kitchen making pasties – they look delicious! Well done!
Students this week in the essential school have been mixing, baking and decorating fairy cakes to take home to parents and carers. Even Mr Weaver has been having a go!
Perfect pasties at home…
As part of the online home learning for Design & Technology this week, students were set an optional extension task to bake cheese and onion pasties. It was great to hear from students who were able to get stuck into this task and here are a selection of the photos sent in. Well done in particular to Lana, Alfie and Sophie – superb baking – I hope they tasted as good as they look!
Not quite a snow day!
