January seems to be lasting a long time this year, but we kept warm and busy with another active week.
For some , the week started on Sunday 22nd with participation at an employability conference organised for young people across Wiltshire where our older pupils really shone.
More credit to our year 7 pupils who visited Marden Court this week. Wonderful to hear about their interactions with residents and even responding well when one of the residents was a little critical of their handwriting!
Staff attended the BETT show, where they were able to pick up more ideas about using technology to support learning
We also had our first ever Science trainees from Bath Spa university, another great opportunity for us to develop.
Looking forward to next September, we held the first Year.9 options assembly, so that thinking and planning can begin for those pupils and their future.
Perhaps most importantly, with the world as it is, we addressed Holocaust Memorial Day through many year.9 pupils and Life Skills pupils studying ‘The Boy in the striped pyjamas’.
Thanks are again due to our mentors from St Marys for their work in celebrating Burns night with our residential pupils with some Scottish themed art work.
A busy week! With more to follow!
