Four students from 11S visited Colchester Zoo to attend an Adaptations talk as part of their Entry Level 3 Science course. It was a useful educational session, which supplemented the teaching and learning that has been happening within school. The students learnt about structural, physiological, and behavioural adaptations.
It was an enjoyable and informative morning, which the students said would benefit them with their Adaptations and Variation unit.

Chinese and Indian artwork.
During our learning about Asia, we produced some Chinese and Indian inspired artwork using watercolours and shaving foam art. Our silhouettes completed the overall look.
'Extremism' Art Work
Students spent a week exploring the theme of Extremism and how we challenge this in modern British society. They focused in particular on the tragic events of 9/11 and 7/7. Here is some of the artwork they produced. They also created news reports and presented a very powerful assembly to the rest of the school. Please click on the image opposite to see our work.

Leavers Presentation Evening
The Class of 2018 recently had their Presentation Evening held at St. Mary's School, it was a fantastic evening filled with lots of memories, new exciting opportunities and delicious food that was catered by our B-Tech pupils. We wish them all the best of luck in the future and hope you keep in touch!
Children in Need
This year, we raised a huge £588.78! The day consisted of various activities, such as baking cookies, making Pudsey hats, making games, making stress balls and lots more! The pupils then gathered in the Hall, a class at a time to sell their creations by setting up a stall. Pupils were extremely enthusiastic and managed to sell ALL of their items.
We would like to say a big thank you to the Beardwell Construction team for their generous donation.
Primary Sports day 2018
President Sporting Club Party
Both Year 7 Classes had a fantastic time at the President Sporting Club Party! They met well known Characters, joined in with party games, received a wonderful roast dinner and were all given a huge party bag full of goodies! Lots of fun had by all and felt extremely grateful for the day they shared together!
Children In Need
During Children In Need, Key Stage 3 Pupils participated in Fundraising Activities such as a Sponsored Silence, Danceathon, Jokeathon and Crafts. As you are aware, the sponsorship will be split between Children In Need and Our School with a Grand Total of £703. The Pupils also wore Fancy Dress, Something Spotty or Own clothes to raise even more money. In The afternoon, the Pupils had a choice of watching a film, playing board games, buying and selling with our credit system or a Disco! An extra further £285 was raised for Children In Need.
We were delighted to see 6W doing so well on their Bikeability training recently. Here they are confidently cycling on the road and successfully navigating turns. Well done.
