From PE …
During January, the students were set an optional PE challenge to complete the set daily workout or any workout of their choice and send in videos/photos to their PE teacher. We were so impressed with how many students completed/attempted the Cha-cha slide plank challenge, Baby shark abs challenge and Joe Wicks workouts! Well done to all of those students who sent in what they’ve been doing. In particular, 2 students went above and beyond and created a video of all the challenges they had done throughout January. Amazing work from Tayla-Mae in Year 7 and Bella in Year 8!
Well done to all students in 10A and 10B GCSE PE classes for producing some fantastic work on ‘Aggression in Sport’ last week. Here are some brilliant pieces from Amelia Kaufman-Cook, Holly Hart, Jess Downing and Molly Barnard.

From PRE …
In Philosophy, Religion and Ethics the Year 9 students have been researching a worldview that does not involve the belief in God: humanism. Here are some of the leaflets they have produced that explore the key principles and values of the humanist community.
From Italian …
This week our year 7s and 8s were set a more creative homework where they could choose one or two things from the ‘Italian cultural menu’. This offered them a choice of fun activities that allowed them to practise their Italian in ‘real’ situations, explore some Italian culture and an optional break from screen time. There have been some wonderful examples of students engaging with this, such as new recipes tried, new Italian music explored, Italian film reviews and even a Powerpoint on an Italian football team. See below some examples!
From Year 8 …
