New films in the Music section
We have three fabulous new films fitting in with a theme of Music.
We have one film celebrating the fantastic 'Junk Band Day', organised by Mrs Beevers. The second is a film about Brass Bands, where the pupils and young people learned about how brass instruments work.
Click below to see the third!
Both Films can be seen in the Music section of The Curriculum.
And the results are in...
As a school everyone managed to climb Kilimanjaro nearly 11 times! Well done everyone. KS4 pupils did a fantastic job of collecting all the data and inputting it into a computer spreadsheet.
From this data we can see exactly how far everyone walked, and it was a whopping 62,991 meters. Wowzers!
KS5 Film Reviews
This film is an emotional roll coaster.
It is amazing to watch the mane character is Joey. Joey has a special bond with his owner Albert he trains him to plough his fathers field. The father doesn’t like Joey because he didn’t do anything right. Albert likes him he trained him to plough. The father tries to kill Joey but Albert stops him.
Joey becomes a war horse when he goes to World War 1. During the war, Joey had a hard job because he got strapped to a canon. And then he made a run for it and the he got stuck in bard weir some people from both centres made effort to let him free. He meets a French girl called Emily. She loves him but she gets taken away by the Germans.
But there is a twist. Albert joins the war hoping to see Joey again. Watch the film to find out if he does.
The main characterises in the film or the horse and Albert his owner. Albert plays a very strong part as Joey s owner and best friend to Joey. The bond between them is very strong.
My opinion of this film it is very emotional I watched parts of it throw gritted teeth.
You should go and watch this film

Student Council Meeting - By Millie
On Thursday 9th November we had a Student Council meeting. We talked about changing the house names. We have had the names Snow Leopards, Red Pandas and Jaguars for a long time, so we thought we could change the names. If you have got any sugestions about what we could change the house names to, come to the meetings. We would like to hear from you.
