Every Monday our pupils have ‘Experiential Learning’ where learning comes to life for them. This week the pupils visited The Angel of The North. This linked to the sculpture topic of last term and also provided an eggcellent (see what I did there?) opportunity to practice egg rolling as part of their Faith Fortnight learning about Easter and its traditions. Red Class recreated The Angel of The North from photographs and recounted their trip to show their recount and sequencing skills and knowledge. What a fantastic week Red Class are having- great job!
Every Friday, the Young People at Beacon Secondary go off site with staff to engage in experiential learning. That is learning out of the classroom environment, developing their social and interpersonal as well as their self-esteem and confidence.
On Friday 17th September:
Aspens and Redwoods visited St Mary’s Lighthouse in the hope of spotting some seals, unfortunately they couldn’t cross the causeway to the island to look for seals but they found quite a few creatures in the rockpools and a caterpillar in the car park! Staff would like to give a special shout out to Kai for helping to keep the beach clean by picking up litter he found and disposing of it correctly in the bin.
Some of the Young People from Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 took part in national beach cleaning week. The students went to Horden beach to help keep our beaches clean. The Group worked well and collected a lot of rubbish! Well done everyone!
