Form Teacher: Mr Handley
with Teaching Assistant support from Miss Kirsten
Pupils will be studying:
This is a varied curriculum for students, where everyone has the chance to succeed and progress towards a career for their future life.
Homework will be given throughout the year for all subjects. If families need additional help to support their child please contact class staff – we will be more than willing to help you. As an addition to any class homework given, please can your child do the following:
It’s not all work though – Students will have the opportunity to go on school trips throughout the year, to support and enhance their learning, but also as a reward for continuing good behaviour and good attitude. Students will also aim to fund raise throughout the year to support our school charities, which they enjoy very much.
As part of our ASDAN qualification, our class had the opportunity to work on a really exciting space directly outside our classroom - "The Newfield Vegetable Garden."
First of all, we weeded all the beds and replenished with fresh soil and compost.
Secondly, with grateful thanks to Mr. Handley's wife, we produced plans for all areas, including a delightful design for a memorial garden for one of our pupils who is tragically no longer with us - this space is adorned with beautiful flowers, heathers and lavender and has already proven to be a popular place for pupils to sit, relax and think.
In the other areas we have planted potatoes, leeks, runner and broad beans, carrots and cabbages as well as strawberries and a herb garden.
I would like to congratulate the whole class on the effort, care skill and attention to detail that they have shown and given to this project and when we get back to school we are looking forward to tending to and caring for the ornamental features and hopefully harvesting some beautifully "school grown" organic produce.
Have a look at our fabulous garden. Miss Neeson 'caught' one of our Lower School pupils very kindly watering the garden (under the careful supervision of Mr Masterson, our Site Manager), on the day before we all went home due to COVID -19. He was very concerned that everything would be ok. Mr Masterson reassured him that everything would be well looked after.
