We cooked a Three course meal โ€˜From Start to Finishโ€™. The pupils started by deciding what to make. We split into three groups and using our iPads we worked out how much it would cost. We then ordered some ingredients online and the rest we bought in the local shop. The pupil prepared the meal in their groups, they had to work out the timings and temperatures. They set the table, cleaned up and off course enjoyed eating the meal. Well done everyone, great work ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Today was Time to Talk day as part of World Children Mental Health Week. This year's slogan is โ€œThe Power of Smallโ€. Year 12/13 bubble created positive posters and placed them around school to make staff and pupils smile. We hoped that by doing something โ€˜smallโ€™ such as creating posters, it would have a huge impact on the Killard families day. To take โ€˜Time to Talkโ€™, we went out for a walk and talked to a partner. Every five minutes we swapped partners until we had talked to everyone in our bubble. We spent the afternoon talking about Mental Health and how we feel about Coronavirus and being in lockdown. Finally the year 12/13 bubble decided to do another small act of kindness, in the form of sending an email to people who we thought could do with cheering up.

Around the world with the Year 12/13 bubble. In Geography we picked our favourite countries and researched as much as we could about them. Once we had found the information we mirrored our iPads to the screen and presented our findings to the rest of the class. We then found a really fun and competitive game involving picking up passengers. We took it in turns to play and again we mirrored our iPads to the screen to allow the rest of the class to see our attempts. A really enjoyable trip and well done on your presentations Year 12/13๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Welcome to Mrs Mainโ€™s Market Madness and Miss Greerโ€™s Greengrocers! Today the Year 12/13 bubble went shopping for a bargain. Each pupil selected their shopping items from the list provided. Once they had their shopping list they visited the shops and talked to the shopkeepers to find out the cost of each item. The pupils challenge was to find out which shop sold the items the cheapest.

Year 12/13 are taking part in DSNIs Virtual Boccia League. We have been practicing this week

In literacy we worked on our communication with our peers. We played monopoly and a dice game, as the boardgames were new to the pupils they had lots of questions and communicated very well with each other.

In numeracy we looked at grid references. We used the IPads to locate the football clubs, confectionary and Disney characters. We then recorded the grid references on our answer sheets.

Year 12/13 have been talking about healthy eating and exercise today. Today we made a โ€œGrillโ€, instead of a fry for breakfast. We also decided that we can buy sugar free alternatives and enjoy them just as much. After our โ€œGrillโ€ we went for a walk to the lighthouse. To continue our exercise we took part in a badminton tournament with two groups. The winners were Tianna and Miss Greer.

Grillday!!!

Year 12 are working well in English and Maths classes

This week Year 12s started a new unit for their OCR qualification. The unit is based around what the pupils do during their leisure time to relax or indeed challenge themselves. The class created a list of their own favourite leisure time activities and each week we will experience a different one. This week Brad suggested he enjoys going out for walks with his mates. We took opportunity to walk to the water tower and played football and basketball.

Great work this week Year 12! Another step towards โ€œnormalโ€ school life. Exciting activities with Mr McCormick in the Year 12 room and creative work in the Art Room. Three weeks to go until half term and there is plenty of fun still to come.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
