Students from M4 recently tested their fitness skills at Walesby Forest and took part in an assault course and laser quest activity. A great day was had by all, with students demonstrating excellent perseverance and determination when faced with some challenging obstacles and working well together during laser quest, deciding as a team what tactics they would employ.
Children in M4 recently visited Cromford Mills in Derbyshire to understand the role of Sir Richard Arkwright during the Industrial Revolution.
They enjoyed having a go at ‘carding’ and spinning thread from raw cotton. They also listened to a worker, describing her life in Cromford.
By the end of the experience, they were all grateful that they didn’t live around 250 years ago as they would have completed five years work by now at the age of twelve! School seems a far better option!
After a year of honing their skills on a Monday morning in the kitchen, students in M4 have today waited on their parents and carers, preparing a two course lunch from scratch.
Parents and carers left satisfied, having enjoyed a variety of meals, including Southern Fried chicken, BBQ pulled pork pizza, chocolate fudge cake and Oreo cheesecake.
Thank goodness we have a dishwasher!!
