The Second Half Term Reading Challenge

This half term the students were challenged to get creative and design a stocking based on a popular character from a book. Each form was given just a plain red stocking to create their masterpieces and we had some fantastic results. It was close but the winners are:

9.4 For their amazing and wonderful George’s Marvellous Medicine exploding and very colourful stocking. (The pictures do not do it justice!)

8.1 For their light up stocking representing Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz.

Well done to everyone who was involved and thank you for making the library so festive!

Spanish Film Festival

As a end of year treat, the Languages department took a number of students from years 9, 10 and 11 to Cubana in Sheffield and then to the Spanish Film Festival at Sheffield Hallam University. We had a fabulous time! 

In the restaurant our students  used their Spanish excellently and with confidence.

After dinner, we took students to Sheffield Hallam Uni to take part in the film festival where they had the chance to watch a number of really entertaining short movies in Spanish that had been subtitled by university students studying Spanish. Our students also got to watch a live Q &A Skype session with some of the directors of these films whilst the university students did some (very challenging) interpreting to help the audience understand the Spanish. 

A fabulous evening had by all!
