This week in Spanish, Year 7 students have been doing their first speaking assessment. We are so proud of what they have learned in just 7 weeks. Click here to listen to one of the tests.
Students in Year 10 French and Spanish have been busily writing up their end of Module 4 speaking questions and are really getting the hang of tenses and more complex sentence structures. Here’s an extract from some of the French questions by Caleb M
Qu’est-ce qu’il y a dans ta région?
Dans ma région, il y a beaucoup de cafés, magasins, et quelques restaurants. Il y a aussi deux l'écoles. Malheureusement il n’y pas beaucoup pour les jeunes. Mais, ça m’est égal, parce qu’ il y a des champs et forêts près de ma maison.
Qu’est-ce qu’on peut faire dans ta région?
Dans ma région, on peut faire des randonnées dans le champs, et visiter des vieilles églises. On peut jouer au golf dans un dix-huit-trou route. On ne peut pas visiter un musée mais il y a des parcs. Je joue en mon ordinateur beaucoup de temps.
Le climat est comment?
Généralement, le climat est humide, mais depuis quelques semaines il fait beau. Le ciel est souvent gris, mais le matin, c’est jaune et très beau. Pour exemple, le week-end dernier, il y avait du vent, et il a pluie.
Sally Turner, PE teacher from Warden Park Secondary Academy in Cuckfield, took part in the National open circuit 25 mile Time Trial championships in Cambridge at the weekend. The course was a sporting 2 lap circuit of 25 miles where Sally was delighted to finish 9th in the country.
Sally said “I am happy to get 9 th and the age group win (and 2nd vet). It has been an up and down year ranging from a string of mechanical DNFs in some races and course records in others! (And the small matter of a global pandemic)
It has been a pleasure to race against the best in the country. Next year I am hoping we can travel again, and I can have another go at achieving a podium place at the world age group UCI championships.
As a self funded sport it has really helped that Mansell McTaggart from Uckfield and Barkers garage have kindly sponsored me. I am incredibly grateful.
Sally is always looking for support if there is anyway you can help her please contact her firstname.lastname@example.org

I’ve finally added up your collection pots (£30.69) and I’m delighted to say that your total now comes to £813.87!
