With a backdrop of some chilly Spring sunshine, students from Glebelands School took part in a plethora of creative activities for their late Spring Focus Day held on Wednesday 26th April.

Students in Year 7 spent half of the day participating in two activities of their choice from Art, Stomp drumming or contemporary dance. These physical activities were followed by team building sessions on the field and in the Sports Hall with games like gutter ball designed to help our new cohort build deeper friendships.

Year 8 spent half the day with some horrid creepy-crawlies and weird and wonderful creatures with the ZooLab experience. A company visited the school and brought in some unusual and amazing animals for students to learn about and in many cases, hold, including a snake which was not for the faint-hearted! The other half of the day was learning about how to programme and write code for simple computer programmes – an essential skill in today’s evolving World.

The Year 9 activity saw them head to Thorpe park for the day, as well as the fun and thrills of being at a theme park for the day and enjoying the rides, they also took part in a STEM workshop. This workshop focused on the design and technology of the structures and rides around the park as well as looking at advances in technology and how they have improved the types of rides that are now available.

Year 10 students were on their work experience placements for the week. This involved being out and about in the community, serving customers in shops and learning about different trades and businesses. Year 11 were focused in revision sessions for the day within the English and Mathematics departments. With exams approaching very soon, students were grateful for the focused support from their teachers.
