In this new feature, we aim to highlight a different subject each term.
This will give you an insight into work being carried out in a specific subject area.
This term we have focussed on PE, with Miss Powe being interviewed and telling us more about the subject.
PE Highlights 2018
Year 7 Football Team have had an outstanding run in the national competition reaching the final eight.
Staff and students are competing together in a local ladies netball team – Miss Powe, Mrs Woodcock, Katie Herbert and Emily Benson-Lester.
This term our year 7 students have been studying volleyball. This is a sport which very few have participated in prior to joining us. It has been great to see students learn completely new skills in an environment where everyone is a beginner.
Our Year 10 GCSE students have been learning to transfer their existing games skill to a new sport – Handball. This sport has enabled boys and girls to compete together thus enhancing lots of team work skills as well as physical skills
Year 12 BTEC Sports Students have been preparing work for a mock interview for a career they might pursue in the future.
This has involved taking students out of their comfort zones and getting them to forward think and plan for their future.
This half term badminton club has been re- launched by Mr Lambert to provide an alternative activity to our competitive games. The idea behind this club is for students to develop their badminton skills in a more recreational setting.
There are still places left on our ski trip – a fantastic opportunity to develop skills in the outdoor activities.
Summer (if we ever get one!!!) sports will be offered next term – tennis, cricket and rounders.
