As part of the Spread a little happiness expedition, our year 7’s have been visiting Age UK Doncaster. Here is Charlie’s (aged 11) reflection of his visit yesterday.
Great work Charlie!
Year 7 students from Admiral have been playing games with the elderly as part of service learning for their expedition Spread a little happiness.
Last week our year 7’s performed extracts from the speeches they wrote about a topic they are passionate about.
Well done to all year 7’s for performing these in front of their families.
Here are just a few of the speeches for the evening….
Year 7 students were asked to write an essay on how prejudice is shown in To Kill a Mockingbird. A fabulous piece of writing Anisa (aged 12)!
I am pleased to announce that Year 7 Humanities and Arts Immersion for the next expedition is to the Houses of Parliament in London.
Both Skipper and Admiral will need to be at school for 6.15am on 4th January and we are due to arrive back 7.30-8pm depending on traffic.
All students (bar those on free school meals) need to bring a packed lunch. Students may want to bring some money with them, as there will be an opportunity to buy something to eat on the way home during the stop at the service station.
We ask that students dress smartly for this visit, no jogging bottoms, hoodies, football shirts or hats of any form.
If you need any further information please contact myself via email firstname.lastname@example.org

The final product for this expedition was an e-book that has an edited section of their work alongside their painting. This is the e-book…
