The Challenge for World Book Day - To read a book in a 'strange' place!

Sharing stories - Serena signed and read through the story 'What the Jackdaw saw' with the class

To support World Book Day on Thursday, Upper Post 16 are having a week focusing on books. We have started the week by looking at our favourite books. Take a look below:

Avatars - As part of our Internet Safety Week, we have been learning about avatars and their purpose online. Staff and students have thoroughly enjoyed creating their own avatars either by hand or using ICT. Don't they look amazing!

Internet Safety 2021 - Students have created a digital footprint. A digital footprint is a trail of 'footprints' that you leave behind you every time you go online. Most of the websites you visit will record by taking a note of your IP (Internet Protocol) address. This is a set of numbers which is unique to your computer. How amazing! Take a look at their wonderfully presented work!

Congratulations to staff and students in UP16 for taking part in the Big Schools’ Birdwatch

We have continued to learn more about Chinese New Year. Today we took part in an activity called BSL Vs Chinese which was good fun. Nicky also taught us how to make fortune cookies. A fortune cookie is a crisp and sugary cookie usually made from flour, sugar, vanilla, and sesame seed oil with a piece of paper inside, a "fortune". All the students and staff had their fortunes read too

We have discovered what animal we are for Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year 2021 - Upper Post 16 have been learning all about Chinese New Year. Students, staff and parents have thoroughly enjoyed making a Chinese Dragon - Take a look!

Chinese Lanterns - we had a go at creating some lanterns.

Students have been challenged with working out the Chinese Code breakers. We also had a go at writing our names using the Chinese symbols too!

This week UP16 have been working on lots of activities to support the Big Garden Birdwatch 2021. Look at these amazing drawings by staff and students in Upper - Excellent effort!!

We have been learning about what is involved in looking after a range of typical house pets and even those unusual pets such as snails, snakes and spiders! As part of the module we have been exploring Woodland Animals and students have been researching what some of those animals need to survive - especially during the Winter months. Examples of some of their work below:
