We are sharing our weekly news every Friday.

Week 3+

This week in Christmas Island has been very busy.

We have made spaghetti bolognaise in food tech which was delicious, the students really got involved in the process from start to finish, prepping ingredients, cooking and cleaning up after themselves. We celebrated Roald Dahl Day on Monday by learning about Roald Dahl’s life and answering questions by picking out key information from the text. We also looked at some of the novels he wrote for adults. Some of us were very surprised to find out he didn’t just write for children. In maths we have been looking at money and using our problem-solving skills to pick out key information in word problems.

We have researched colleges in in employability lessons and identified courses we are interested in and what we would like to achieve in the future. Have a restful weekend 🙂

Week 2+

Welcome back Christmas Island! It’s so good to see you all. We’ve had a great first week back in school. We have looked at the expectations of students in sixth form and have focused on team building, taking part in class challenges including survival skills and shelter building,  inventing a new product for a Dragon’s Den pane and presenting our pitch and taking part in team games in PE. We made paninis in food tech which were really tasty.


Well done everyone for a great first week back
