In outdoor education this term pupils in year 10 are participating in a skiing activity.
9A were responsible for this weeks assembly. Their topic was ‘the new year’., 9A organised and completed their assembly independently which is a first for Elemore. Well Done.
Friday 14th December was the annual table tennis tournament at Elemore Hall. The competition consisted of a key stage 3 competition and a key stage 4 competition. Both competitions were played as a round robin format with each player playing each other. All games were played in the correct spirit and some pupils were able to help score games for the others. Once both key stage winners had been decided, the Key stage 3 winner played against the Key stage 4 winner to find the overall winner of the tournament. Scott Horseman was the overall winner after a closely contested final! It was a fantastic day and well done to everyone who took part!
A small group of pupils from 9A attended a workshop held at the school by North East Ambulance Service volunteers. The pupils had access to an Ambulance vehicle and were taught what all the different pieces of machinery were used for. They also listened well to the volunteers discussing their job roles, how they got into this type of job, and what the highlights and difficulties were. It was a very informative workshop and the pupils were very engaged – well done!
Selected pupils visited The Oaks Secondary school to participate in their enterprise morning.
Today, 10B hosted a coffee morning to raise money for the Toilet Twinning Charity. They arranged and prepared everything including invites and making lots of toilet themed cakes. They invited a group from The Oaks Secondary School Sixth Form. So far they have raised £150 which they will keep adding to over the next term.
10B are hosting a coffee morning on the 23rd November 2018 to raise money for the charity Toilet Twinning.
Year 7 visited the Centre For Life as part of their ICT lessons. Pupils had the opportunity to see robots from the past and present.
10B went on a field trip to Penshaw Monument to take photographs for their GCSE Digital Photography coursework projects. It was a very windy day. Pupils experimented with landscape, structural, wildlife and action topics. Back in school the photographs taken will be digitally changed or enhanced to ‘improve’ them.
