On Friday Design and Technology students from Year 9 and 10 visited Princess Yachts in Plymouth. They were met by two fantastic members of the team, who gave them a tour of each factory. They experienced different stages of the production process from smaller yachts at 40ft to larger yachts at 85ft. They were also lucky enough to be the first group of students to step inside a near finished boat, where they could see parts made in the factory, finished and in place. Vicky Clansey gave a talk on the apprentice scheme, where we discovered the range of apprenticeships and amazing opportunities available with this established global company. We had a truly fantastic day. Thank you Princess Yachts, we have come away inspired and educated.

Our annual Easter Eggstravaganza took place on Friday evening. The Junior School was buzzing with children trying to work out the Easter code to win their Easter prizes! Using their Easter passports they travelled around the Junior School searching for letters and taking part in egg-citing activities. Once they had successfully cracked the code they headed to the dining room to create their own crowns.
On Friday we also held an Easter bonnet competition. The bonnets were fantastic – well done to everyone.

Year 3 had a wonderful morning in the catering suite creating their own Rainforest Cookies. They have been learning about Rainforests this term and used ingredients they might find in the Rainforest. They cracked eggs, weighed ingredients and mashed bananas to create some fantastic Rainforest Cookies. Thank you to the Year 9 GCSE Food students who supported our Year 3 bakers.

Year 8 English

In English Year 8 have been studying the poetry of World War 1. We have looked at a range of poems in class through the mediums of discussion, storyboarding and drama. Students have been able to choose their favourite poem to complete their end of unit assessment on. The class have been divided in to ‘apples’ ‘pears’ and ‘bananas’ tables depending on the skills they need to focus on to improve their work. Mrs Read has been in supporting the class which has been a fantastic help.
