They’re back! DC Animators returned from the Christmas break full of ideas and enthusiasm, and it was great to see so many raring to go!
Many of our Y7s have been superstars this term and achieved their Praise, Bronze and Silver awards. Josh, in particular has been amazing and achieved his Bronze, as well as an extra special effort award from Miss Tunnicliffe. Well done Josh, keep up the great work!
Some excellent investigation by Alex into changes of state!

Great effort from our Year 7s with their Oliver the Twist homework! Below is just a sneak peek!
Team teaching with some of our Polish and Russian learners, making links between languages during our work on irregular verbs in French. Huge thanks to Olivia, Klaudia, Dominika, Emilia and Ulduz! Very well done! Mrs Hammond
