Our year 9 Vocational Curriculum is in full swing with our pupils building skills learning about different vocations that are potentially open to them in the future.
- Our mountain bikers are learning progressively more difficult skills having travelled to Philips park and the mountain bike skills track.
- Our creative artists are exploring aboriginal art, its roots and are recreating some examples they’ve researched.
- Our sports analysts selected different free kicks from Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar, analysed slow motion video of their technique and tried to put it into practice and improve their own free kicks.
- Our sports fitness group set up their own fitness circuit in the games room where they had more space and tried out their own fitness circuit to see how their exercises affected the fitness of different parts of the body.
For the John Muir Award:
- Miss Crossley’s class travelled to Uppermill to walk down the canal and learn all about how canal locks worked and also to explore the community gardens where different foods are being grown and bees are being kept.
- Mr Mullins class visited the Sandstone trail in Cheshire and tried different wild foods including Sweetcorn, Blackberries and Damsons. They also found Musket’s Hole where bandits used to hide their loot and there is a small crawl space to escape out of if needs be, and the Queen’s cave which is a huge cave that travels so far back underground it’s pitch black!
All of our students have been excellent this week , so well done to everyone!
