Ouseburn Farm

Last week students from post 16 took part in a work experience challenge on Ouseburn Farm. This involved learning about the different animals on the farm, taking part in cleaning out the animals cages, making a scrapbook and also watching a video teaching them about what animals get used for on the farm.

The students found it was a fun way to learn and had a great week.

VARC art project

On the 27th of April speech and language students took part in a art project in Highgreen near Kielder. They walked in the forest and collected natural materials to create an art printing.  After collecting the materials they created their printing pieces.

Then after all that hard work we all enjoyed a slice of pizza cooked in the open fire oven in the forest. 026031067
