Year 7 Trip to Warwick Castle
Year 7 enjoyed a trip to Warwick castle in September. The pupils were able to walk up the 520 steps to the top of the castle; they saw the launch of the mighty trebuchet and learnt about what life was like during the Middle Ages. They also saw the birds of prey show and got to watch the skilful bowman in action. It was a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable trip which really inspired the children to continue learning about Medieval Britain.Warwick Castle 0Warwick Castle 1Warwick Castle 2Warwick Castle 3

Friday 26th January: Theatre in Education
On Friday, 26th January 2018, Year 7 were lucky to have the Theatre in Education group 'White Socks' come into school for a performance and workshop entitled 'Borrowed Time'. The performance was commissioned by the Illegal Money Lending service, to raise awareness about loan sharks and illegal money-lending. Pupils were provided with the opportunity to engage and recognise the relevance of this issue, through the medium of forum theatre, as part of their SEAL lesson. Pupils were enthused after the performance; we will be following this performance with some additional reflection in their SEAL lessons.

Tuesday 14th November: French Theatre Visit

Review written by Amelia Duke - Language Ambassador
On Tuesday the 14th of November, Years 6, 7 and 8 experienced French theatre. Even though the entire play was French-based it was easy to follow. All of the pupils, throughout the production broke into peals of laughter at this performance. The play was a re-creation of the Tudor times when Henry VIII was looking for a new wife and he sent painters all over Europe to find the most beautiful women. They would the paint them and take them to the king. This particular story is of the painter, William Babbington, who travels to France to find a new lady for the king. Overall, it was funny and interactive with fantastic costumes and scenery.

Review written by some of our Year 7 Language Ambassadors
The play was fantastic and so funny! Lots of pupils from the audience got involved which made us all laugh. It was a great way of learning, we didn’t even realise we were learning the vocabulary. This was a great experience and we were even able to meet the actors after the show! We really hope that we can do this sort of thing again, it was just brilliant! Thank you Miss Morris! 



Portraiture Through the Ages
In our current Year 7 Art project we have been looking at Portraiture through the ages.
We have explored various contemporary and traditional artists and art styles.
Our final piece was based upon our own images seen through a bendy mirror. We observed the distortion and applied accent shading, light and dark.
