An 11-16 Academy
On 7th July 2016 we invited all of our Year 4 children from the Primary Schools to a taster morning at the High School. They had two short lessons to give them an idea of what life might be like at Stradbroke High School.
One group had a PRE lesson (Philosophy, Religion and Ethics) where they acted out the parable of the Prodigal Son.
They also had a keyword challenge with scrabble letters.
Geography had them exploring the school and grounds by following an orienteering course on a map. They worked in teams and marked a card. Others had a Graphics taster lesson, and another group did PE.
Some pupils also had an art lesson where they did pastel transfer drawings with bold colours, shapes and patterns. Another group had a History lesson where they looked at medieval knights, and how they were supposed to behave: what is known as the 'code of chivalry'. Year 4 translated some Old English to find out how a knight should look, and then investigated the sport of 'jousting'. Each student produced their own jousting knight puppet and we each had a joust!
They all had a really great time and we thoroughly enjoyed having them. We will look forward to inviting them up to more taster sessions in the autumn.
