Growth Mindset: Autumn Rewards Event (Dec 22)
Queen's Platinum Jubilee (Elements Lessons): Decorating the School
Queen's Platinum Jubilee (70 years): Tree Planting (May 22)
In order to commemorate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, selected students planted 70 laurel trees around our border. Students developed key life skills of resilience (some of the ground was tough to break up in order to establish optimum planting conditions), teamwork (by managing the work load evenly, and calculating appropriately), independence (by forking and digging individual holes for plants), communication (to calculate and determine the spacing between the hedging plants) and problem solving (calculating the optimum spacing distances between plants)... as well as developing their understanding of Maths (calculating gaps and ratios) and Science (by looking at plant life cycles).
