Our Yr7 pupils have been busy all afternoon participating in a variety of workshops. They have learnt about teamwork, communication, games planning and dance!
Ten Year 7 pupils have been busy brushing up on their leadership skills at today’s Dorset Primary Leadership Academy at Poole High School. After arriving and getting into their brand new Bronze Ambassador t-shirts, the group set to work planning exactly how they were going to motivate KS2 pupils back at school to take part in more physical activity. Some superb ideas have been suggested and we are all very excited to get back to school and start putting them into practice.
The team have suggested planning and delivering an assembly for our younger pupils as well as designing posters for tutor rooms to advertise their new reward scheme. Watch this space for more news!

Well done everybody for working so well on our field trip on Friday 17th May.
Make sure you bring your booklet and map completed and into school for your next lesson. If you weren't able to go you can still complete them: use the picture of the two groynes (below) to complete your EIA and sketches. Copy up all the other information from a friend.
For our trip on Friday make sure you have done the planning. Use the worksheet I gave you (it is attached and can be downloaded from the link below) to understand where things are at Hengistbury Head.
If you are unsure about grid references, use this step by step link:
This pebble began life as part of a cliff along the Devon coast. It ended up on Bournemouth beach over one hundred miles away.
Your task is to tell the story of the pebble. How does it first fall into the sea and how does it end up on Bournemouth beach? How does longshore drift move it to Bournemouth?
You can choose to draw a storyboard, write a story or a poem.
You must try to include as many keywords from the check list as possible. Try to show off your geographical knowledge of coastal landform and processes. Describe what happens to the pebble how does it change shape and what might it see along the way?
These are the names of lanforms
These are the names of processes, they are grouped into four, which is the order they should happen. People could happen at any time.
WT: Use 5 key words correctly, you must use the green ones.
Ex: Use at least 12 words
GD use all the words
Diagrams, colour and poetry are welcome! DO NOT DO THE PEER ASSESSMENT YET, WE WILL DO IT IN CLASS.
