October is Black History Month and classes across the school have enjoyed exploring the theme through art, music and their learning. The month has tied in well with our term’s theme, ‘Belonging’ as learners begun to explore how the wider picture of Black history relates to their own families, cultures and backgrounds.
As the first half term draws to an end, we have been reflecting on the friendships we have made and all the fun we have had! From sensory stories to lots of messy play, early years have had an exciting and enriching first half term. They have responded so well to new routines and faces and each learner has brought their own personality to the classrooms, making it a fun experience for everyone!
We have been learning about our leisure choices this half term. We used public transport to visit a Youth Club in Somers Town, where we met other learners from Hampstead School. There was also a workshop about college courses and future pathway options for our year 10 and 11 students.
We enjoyed playing Pool, Table Tennis, Computer Games and Table Football. Some of our students now attend Somers Town Youth Club after school on a Thursday evening!
During their 'Community and Environment' lessons this half term, students in Post-16 have been visiting local cafes to order and taste different drinks and complete a 'Trip Advisor' review on their experience. Students had to consider the cafe appearance, staff service and taste of the drink they chose before awarding up to five stars for each.
Students shared that two of their favourites were Cafe Nero on Finchley Road and the Community Cafe by the fountains behind Swiss Cottage Station!
