This was put together in partnership with employers across the country and the Oak National Academy to provide Y10 pupils with a week of virtual work experience as their usual week of work experience had to be cancelled this year.
As part of this, Mr Leiblich set an activity called 'Careers in RE'. Arifa in Year 10 submitted this amazing piece of work and said "This task gave me a lot of insight to careers and the impact RE has on them. This lesson has taught me a lot and I am really thrilled. I finally understand a whole new relevance to RE as a subject to many jobs. Wow." Well done Arifa!

Jake in Year 7 is the latest person to really impress Ms Fox with their cooking skills whilst learning at home. He made some very tasty looking fajita wraps which we are very jealous of! Well done Jake!
We were really pleased to hear about this charity work that Tom in Year 7 has been doing over the past few months. He and his mum have been delivering food boxes to young people coming out of the care system. It is part of a project they got involved in with Caring in Bristol and Bristol City Council.
Some young people who have come out of foster care during the last few months are really struggling to stand on their own two feet. To help, they have been getting food boxes with produce packed at Ashton Gate Stadium.
We hear that Tom has got a lot out of it and realised that not everyone is able to put a meal on the table. It has helped build an appreciation of the charities that help them get by. Tom and his mum have been driving throughout Bristol and calling on homes, leaving the boxes on their door steps and following all social distancing protocols.
Well done Tom!
Mr Ford was really impressed by the work on the Flying Pig Invention which was completed by Zara in Year 8. Looks like a very interesting idea! Well done Zara!
Jacob in Year 7 is the latest example of some amazing Food Tech work. That spaghetti bolognaise looks absolutely scrumptious! Well done Jacob!
Jenny in Year 10 has completed some great work that Mrs Woodley has asked to be shared. This work is on Aerobic and Anaerobic Respiration and clearly shows how much effort has been put in to the work. Well done Jenny!
Miss Amesbury wanted everyone to see these great pieces of work that were completed in English recently. The first poem is inspired by the work of Benjamin Zephaniah. It is a 'Recipe poem' that explores the importance of diversity and equality and has been completed by a Year 7 student. The second poem (with the blue background) is another 'Recipe poem' by one of our year 8 students that explores the unique mix of ingredients that goes together to make friendship groups. We know that many of you will be missing your friends so hopefully this will remind you of good times and give you something to look forward to.
