Lea Green Free Outdoor Activities Day

Week commencing 17th June - Sports week


We have had chances to try out different sports this week. We had a go at the climbing wall, laser tag, athletics and archery. All students enjoyed the activities. 

Week Commencing 4th June - Duke of Edinburgh

We are going out to Nottingham college on a Thursday morning this term and learning about Small Animal Care. We have seen Guinea Pigs, Rats, Hamsters, Gerbils, Snakes, Spiders, Hedgehogs and a Bearded Dragon. We are learning how to hold and care for them. We are helping to clean out their cages and tanks.

W/C 22/4/24: Virtual work experience

On Wednesday and Friday this week, all students were involved in virtual work experience, hearing from the NHS about supported internships, the CoOp about careers in retail, the Department of Work and Pensions about applying for jobs and from Mott McDonald about construction and engineering roles. All the students listened well and participated in the tasks directed to help gain an understanding about a career in these fields. These events are helpful by providing students time to consider the types of skills/ tasks they would be comfortable using in a career and expanding their understanding of where their interests can be utilised.

Week of 26th February 2024


This week we went out to Portland Park during PE to do some orienteering and discovered Zombies had taken over part of the park! We built a shelter to hide from them using our team skills. We then had to escape the Zombies by running as fast as we could away whilst screaming in terror! Much fun was had by all.

In English we have been working on our covering letters as practise for when we need to apply for colleges and jobs.

During R.E. we walked down to St. Thomas Church in Kirby. We had a look around inside and were able to ask some questions.

In our Duke of Edinburgh afternoon we are going to walk around Kirkby Cross.

This week we have been finalising our Asdan photography module. We have picked a theme and using a school Ipad we each took some photographs. We then used the software on the Ipad to manipulate the pictures. Once the pictures are printed we are going to display them.

Thursday - Work Related Learning

12 December 2023


We had a great morning at Harvey Haddon sports centre playing in a Dodgeball competition. We won quite a number of matches. The whole team were able to adjust their individual game style depending on the other team which they were playing. Some of the matches were so fast paced the students were worn out trying to keep up! All of the students worked as a team and swopped themselves in and out when they felt they needed a rest.

Week Ending 10th November 2023

Week ending 10th November 2023

A great start to the first week of the half-term! This week was money week. We set the students The £5 Challenge! They had to come up with a business idea, conduct market research, look at financing and costs and then present the business idea to a set of investors or "Dragons"! There we're some amazing ideas including; a brownie business (yum), a environmental education product, a keyring business and a couple of unique artwork businesses! The presentations at the end of the week were amazing and the pupils were extremely confident! As part of the money week we also welcomed a number of guest speakers who taught us about budgeting, financial help and the world of work.


At the Acre we have started creating some Christmas themed products to sell at the Christmas Fair as part of our Enterprise project and they look great!

Week commencing 16th October

Sherwood have been sharing their knowledge of the Jewish faith that they have learnt about in RE lessons. They retold the story of Passover to the other classes and shared what went on the Passover plate.

10th October 2023


We have finished the book Stone Cold in English and are now writing a story based on the theme of the book. We have planned our stories out and have now begun to type them up.

We have been trying out different brands of foods as part of our Asdan coursework (Rice Krispies, Baked Beans, Bread, Tomato Ketchup and Hot Chocolate) to see which tastes the best. We are comparing the prices of the brands to see if our favourites are value for money.

We are enjoying getting outside during PE and having a go at Cricket and Rounders. We are practicing our throwing skills, catching skills and playing as a team.


This term's theme: Work for It!
