Our most able Year 9 and Year 10 students had a fantastic time at Liverpool University on their university taster day. Here are some photographs from the day. More details to follow.
Well done to the following Year 7 students who have been chosen for important Student Voice roles:
In English, Year 7s have been working on a Magic & Mystery scheme of work and they looked at Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The students had to design their own sweets and an advert for the new product. The students came up with some fantastic ideas and, as a result of this, they were given the opportunity to be Willy Wonka himself and make their own sweets!
The students were given a range of different shapes, sizes and tastes which they had to describe. The students were then able to stick the sweets together with icing sugar to create their own designs.
Sky Sports Living for Sport
As part of the Sky Sports Living for Sport Project, Jenna Downing delivered a session with a group of 13 students on the 6 keys to success in sport and life. This was the start of our 6 week project which will culminate in the students delivering a sports festival to local primary school children. The day was a huge success with a mixture of both classroom and practical activities that were great for our students. The students ended the day with autographs and a few other freebies including a Sky Sports Living for Sport t-shirt.
Jenna Downing is an Athlete Mentor for Sky Sports. She is a World Champion In-line skater who became and still is the only female skater to have her own signature brand of in-line skates. She now lives on the Wirral and will be keeping in touch with the school to offer support during the project.
