Year 11 had a wonderful activity week in March which was developing their resilience and independence skills in a range of settings. As you can see from the pictures above, they really enjoyed visiting Dedham Vale Therapy Farm.
Four pupils visited Colchester Zoo to attend an Adaptations talk. 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.

Children in Need
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.
