Picnic Planning by 3A & 3B

Picnic Planning by 3A & 3B

Posted by Avalon School on May 26th 2017

3A and 3B have spent the last two weeks planning and making a picnic. Last week they planned their picnics and made their shopping lists. This week they went to the supermarket and made their picnics, carefully labelling them so there were no mix ups! Yesterday they packed up the minibuses and headed out to Burnham-on-Sea to eat their picnics and buy postcards. The sun was shining in Burnham and they enjoyed walking on the beach and going to Apex park. Everyone bought a postcard, and today they’re busy writing and posting them. So watch out in the post for postcards from the 3A and B jet setters!

This month 3D and KS4 went to Kilve Court for an action packed residential. They crammed in lots of exciting and adventurous activities on their two nights away, including abseiling, archery, crate stacking, pond dipping, low ropes and bush craft.

Well done to all who tried something new and made this residential so successful and fun! Click on this story to see lots more photos of the fun they had!

Haynes Motor Museum

Posted by Avalon School on May 19th 2017

Our cross curricular theme this half term is ‘Transport’ and in 3D we’ve been studying the development of transport in our history lessons. To support our learning we had an amazing visit to Haynes Motor Museum in Sparkford with exclusive use of their education centre and activities lead by their Education Manager. We were given a guided tour of the museum and allowed to touch, and in some cases sit in, some of the vehicles on display. After a picnic lunch we had the opportunity to ride around the museum track in a Bentley limousine.

World Wildlife Day

World Wildlife Day

Posted by Laura on April 6th 2017

On Friday 3rd March pupils took part in World Wildlife Day, an international event which is organised locally by Secret World Wildlife Rescue in Highbridge. Many pupils and staff dressed in animal-themed clothing and the day was filled with activities focusing on our pets and favourite animals. There was also an opportunity for pupils to meet some real-life animals. Many thanks to all the animals who came to visit us and their owners. The day ended with an assembly in which pupils sat on tables in mixed class groups, sharing their photos and talking about their pets. We have a beautiful mosaic in the hall, which is made from pupils’ paintings, pastel drawings, collages and prints of animal skins and markings, as a reminder of the day.

Song Story Project

Posted by Laura on July 1st 2016

3AK and 3LS students have been busy participating in workshops at our school and working with visiting musicians Will, Flora and Saffron. These students performed in a exciting music project 'Song Story'. The project ‘Song Story’ was a collaboration of music and drama with Avalon, Elmwood, Critchill and Selworthy Schools working together. The project was based around the piece of music ‘Four Seasons’ by Vivaldi. There was a combination of composing, playing, singing and performing. On Wednesday 29th June, there was a big celebration performance with everyone coming together to perform the whole piece at Robert Blake Science College. Gemma and Lorna were very impressed with Avalon students' bravery, listening and concentration both on stage performing but also when sat in the audience, waiting and listening.

Posted by Laura on June 29th 2016

On Thursday 16th and Friday 17th June, 6GM students had a fantastic time on their residential camp. The weather was very kind to us, which meant we were able to enjoy a picnic in the Parade Gardens at Bath, as well as experiencing a sensory play 'Wave' at the Egg Theatre, fish and chips at Shepton Mallet and a boat trip in Gloucester. The students were very tired from the crammed packed days but really enjoyed the different experiences and the sleepover with their friends at school. Lots of lovely memories for our 6GM leavers.
