Duke of Edinburgh - The start of a new Expedition for our Pupils.

The school is now registered for a licence to deliver the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.  The DofE Manager will be DA and a pilot will be run at the Sleaford Base initially with approx. 4 – 5 of our current Y10 and below pupils.  Sessions will happen every week starting after Christmas to prepare them for their expedition.  If the pilot is successful we will roll out the award to other interested bases/pupils.

Save the Children - Christmas Jumper Day

 A Christmas Elf Dressed up for Jumper Day

Hi Everybody,

Today at Sleaford it was Christmas Jumper Day!!! Pupils and staff wore the jazziest, brightest, over the top jumpers I have ever seen and everybody got into the Christmas spirit in a big way. Donations for the Save The Children fund were greatly received. There were games lined up and prizes galore and everybody had such fun. Even the candidates for RSO interviews arrived looking very festive! We all had a fantastic day. 

Thanks everyone, from your cheeky Christmas DR  Elf

London Trip December 2017

On Wednesday 13th December this year, 16 students and 8 staff took a train to London. We walked two miles through London taking in the iconic sites along the river; the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, The London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral and the Shard. We walked over Waterloo Bridge to Covent Garden and down Drury Lane and Museum Street to The British Museum where we saw the Mummies of Ancient Egypt. We had lunch at the museum and then we went by taxis via Buckingham Palace to the Apollo Victoria Theatre to see a performance of the musical Wicked. We then jumped into more taxis to go back to Kings Cross Station, where we managed to fit in seeing the Harry Potter Platform 9 and three quarters before catching the train back to Lincolnshire. It was a full and tiring yet incredibly worthwhile day in terms of broadening horizons,  having new experiences, learning new skills, being sociable, building resilience and having fun!

All the best

Btec Animal Care - Handling Day

 MillipedeHedgehogBearded Dragon

                                                                                                  

 On the 5th December, we had visitors of various reptile and small animal species. The animals included: a hedgehog, a millipede, a frog, tarantulas, a scorpion and a snake. An interesting thing I found out was that if you stroke a hedgehog, the spikes don’t prick you and it feels like a rough rug. Also the bearded dragon’s chin turns black when it starts to become angry. When I held the millipede, it tickled my hands and it wrapped its self around them.

On Thursday 16th November,  our member of staff JD hosted a Children In Need Fundraiser morning in her Tutor Time. Students from Sleaford base took part in juggling, hoola hooping and covering Pudsey Bear in loose change that the students brought in. A big Thank You to a pupil BJ for bringing in a huge carrier bag full of 2p and 1p coins!

On Friday 17th students came to school in various costumes including two Pudsey Bears, One Pokemon character, a number of onesies and lots of spotty items.

Everyone had lots of fun and a number of staff from Sleaford base also got involved.
