On Saturday 18th May, Poppy L in Year 9 competed at the Nation Baton Twirling Association’s Regional Finals in Taunton.
She did very well to be placed 2nd in her solo twirl routine in N.B.T.A’s junior category and if it weren’t for other plans, she would be heading to the National Finals in Leicestershire in October.
On 14th May 2013, our Health & Social Care group, along with our teacher Mrs Simpson, went on a visit to Rosewarne House in Camborne. Rosewarne House is part of disability charity, Scope and is a residential home for people with Cerebral Palsy. We were all excited and a little nervous of what to expect, but we are pretty sure that we can all say that those nerves soon faded.
The Artist of the Week award goes to Amber B. For homework Amber produced a T-shirt design inspired by patterns and shapes seen in Navajo textiles, a theme researched in lesson time. Amber used harmonious colours and symmetry in her design but she extended the homework by drawing her design onto a T-shirt in full colour, creating a design that could be sold in high street shops! In addition to this Amber also produced artwork that was embellished with collage, stitching and weaving. Well done Amber!
Last week Miss Thomas’ Science group started their new topic called A&E. In the first lesson the group took on the role of trainee doctors pretending they were in a hospital A&E department, having to use their Science knowledge to decide who to treat first and how to treat them. Luckily most lives were saved.
In order to develop the students knowledge on the organs further they took apart ‘Polly’ our Science model torso, and then watched a heart and lung dissection, where we even managed to get one of the lungs to inflate!
