Last Thursday was our first SALAD Day. It was an opportunity for all year groups to develop their speaking and listening skills. Students really loved having a different approach to their lessons and we are hoping to see their confidence develop as we do more of these events throughout the year.

Miss Redfern’s classes explored population structure using jelly babies. Groups had to work against each other, often stealing each other’s people though event cards relating to birth rate, death rate, disease and health. This certainly had the classes speaking and listening to each other – with much debate too! Miss Redfern commented; “I enjoyed seeing the learning coming to life and watching the students confidence develop. ‘Best lesson ever’ was one quote I heard from a student. It was a really fantastic initiative”.
