Packed hospitals have been forced to turn away patients, people were dying in the streets and bodies were found washed up on the banks of rivers. This rise in case numbers has been exponential in the second wave, and this time it’s not only…

Waste Week 2021

Waste Week 2021

Did you know that in the UK we throw away approximately 20 million slices of bread every day which creates greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to over 140,000 cars every year? Or that every year, 36,500 cows are producing milk that we just throw down the drain? Or that on average, a UK family could save £720 per year if they stopped throwing their food in the bin? These are just a few reasons why we have decided to take part…

Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week

In PSHE during Mental Health Awareness Week, Years 7 and 8 were asked to think about ‘What makes you, you?’  With this in mind pupils drew silhouettes of themselves and then filled these with pictures, images and words of things that make them ‘them.’ We looked at what they like, family, friends, hobbies, skills and all the things that make them unique and special so they can celebrate being themselves.  You can see a few of the pictures here and…
