Form 3 Hockey Fixture

By All School News

On Tuesday 10th March, Form 3 had a fantastic afternoon taking part in their first hockey fixtures against Orchard House School.

The class were divided into two teams (Blues and Purples) to play against Orchard House. Despite only having a couple of hockey lessons this year, you certainly couldn’t tell they were playing their first matches , winning 2 and drawing 3 of their 6 games played.

The Blues and Purples both demonstrated fantastic team work in attacking and defending, with all of them being assertive in their play and effectively contributing to their teams’ performances.

The girls will continue to work on their spacing out and structure across the pitch during lessons, which will allow them to attack with greater speed through passing over longer distances using the width and height on the pitch.

Thank you to all of the parents who came and supported the Form 3 in their matches, we hope you enjoyed it as much as they did!

Computing Club Create GIFs!

By All School News

This half term Form 4 have been creating simple animations in their computing lessons. Taking part in computing club, one of the class decided to take it a step further and use their newly acquired computing skills to produce a superb animation. She spent over 35 minutes crafting her animation and thinking about what she wanted to achieve.  The final result is stunning.

This single animation took 105 photos (also called frames) to complete.

Forms 5 & 6 ‘Magistrates in the Community’ Workshop

By All School News

On Tuesday 3rd March, Forms 5 and 6 were lucky to be visited by ‘Magistrates in the Community’.  Two Magistrates ran a workshop where each form took part in a discussion around the role of the magistracy, the rules we all live by and the age of criminal responsibility, before taking part in a “mock trial.”  Each student took a different role within a magistrates’ court – being either the magistrates, the legal advisor, the court usher, the defence or prosecution teams, a witness or, of course, the defendants.  The students were absolutely superb in their deliberations of the evidence presented to them in the trial and made considered decisions regarding the innocence (or not) of the defendants in each case.

Thank you to ‘Magistrates in the Community’ for visiting CBPPS.
