Congratulations to the following students who are our PE Stars of the Month!
A recent SMSC activity set by the English Department was to “Create a poem representing your form’s vision of a future without COVID”. Here is 8JC’s poem, special recognition goes to Madison Scully who managed to write all their ideas into this lovely poem.
Vision for the future
I see a future that is full of life
Free of masks when we can get back to doing normal tasks
And without anxiety and fear
Full of happiness and cheer
And friends and family for the rest of our years
I see a future that is full of light
Free of darkness, where everything seems bright
And without us staying a metre away
Full of freedom and normal days
And to think we were all locked up back in May
I see a future that is crystal clear
Free of cases for over a year
And without worrying to be clean all the time
Full of joy that makes us shine
And love that lasts for a lifetime
I see a future that is ever closer now
Free of worry when we don’t know how
And without COVID to spoil the fun
Full of laughter
And all of this is over and done
Presdales Tropical Rainforest Bugs
This half term, Year 8 Geographers have used their knowledge of tropical rainforest conditions and how animals have adapted, to design and make their own rainforest bugs that they think will survive the best. Well done everyone!
The Year 12 Product Design students were extremely busy last term working on their Lamp Projects. We are extremely proud of all of the students work, and the effort and time that went into them. They were set a brief back in June, when they commenced their Year 11 into 12 bridging work, to design and make a table lamp. We feel the variety of materials, manufacturing processes and styles are quite inspired and their design sheets support their thinking and development of their designs. We now move onto theory which should build on their knowledge from GCSE and apply this in January when we begin the Architectural Model project. Well done Year 12!!
