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.
On Tuesday the 9th of May a group of girls from across the school took part in Girls Sports. The activities were “TEAM WORK”. The girls took part in different games and team building exercises to encourage them to work together. They finished off with a game of football and were all presented with a medal to reward their hard work and participation. WELL DONE GIRLS!

Last week 6LD/Post 16 took part in arts week. We chose cubism to do for our class display. Each class over the whole school took part to do all the displays in school. We had to research cubism and create our very own cubist work for class display.
We enjoyed learning about Pablo Picasso and other artists.

It has been a pleasure to work alongside Juliette and Graham, making songs and performing them. We are currently working on a class song….. to be continued!!!
Students from Post 16 and KS4 have been taking part in a variety of sporting activities especially for girls at both Gateshead Stadium and Walker Dome. These include football, tag rugby, dance, pentathlon and multi skills. It is a good social opportunity to mix with girls from other schools.
