Katy Storie Visits BCHS

Students in Year 7, 8 and 9 had a special assembly on Monday morning, 27 March, when former England Rugby player Katy Storie came into school to tell her story as part of the Sky Sports Living for Sport Programme. A group of students who are Gifted and Talented in PE will be part of the Sky Sports Project next term where they will receive another visit from Katy. Katy told her story of how she grew up hating who she was because of the way she looked and had no love of PE until a life changing moment when she was introduced to weightlifting, and won numerous titles in the sport, which led her to play rugby and represent England winning 6 nations titles. Katy left the students with a take home message of; learn to love what makes you different because it’s what makes you stand out.

7KGN make Mothers day Treats

Mother’s Day was fast approaching and class 7KGN were keen to show their mum’s how much they were appreciated. They talked about the sentiment of giving and receiving and the class decided rather than buy something for their mum’s they would rather make them something special to keep.

 They all set about choosing a poem, photograph or picture their mum’s would love then printed them off, adding their own special message. Once printed they were laminated and a calendar was added to make a very simple but very personal gift.

There were a lot of very happy, proud smiley faces at the end of guidance which I am sure was mirrored on Mothering Sunday morning.

Year 7 Enterprise

Today, 20 March, Yr 7 students participated in a team building Workshop led by Carole Richards from Northumberland Education Business Partnership and supported by six local employers.

The aim of this activity is to encourage students to work on their own, then in pairs and then as a team to produce a 4m Tetrahedron.  This activity introduces to children to the skills required to work in the STEM sectors and allows the students to develop their team working skills, problem solving skills, leadership skills,time management skills and their communication skills. Working with employers gives the children the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the world of work and raises their job awareness.
