What’s the top book?
What was the most popular book borrowed from the library this
term? In first place for both girls and boys it was the book Wonder by
R J Palacio.
Wonder is an inspirational story about being accepted for who you
are, no matter what you look like. Year 7 are also reading this as part
of their Learning Baccalaureate. If you haven’t had chance to read it
we would recommend that you do or request Santa buys you a copy
for Christmas!

On Tuesday 26
th
November and Thursday 28
th
November all of Year 8 were involved in a ‘Save
a Life’ training day, delivered by The Red Cross.
Pupils were trained by Peter Juniper, Pam
Willerton and Margaret Firman on the basic
skills of first aid and how indeed they could
save someone’s life by equipping them with
some simple skills.
All pupils were taught how to put a casualty
into the recovery position, how to alert the
emergency services, what to do if someone
was choking, how to deal with cuts and
bleeding and how to administer CPR.
The trainers remarked on how well behaved
and interested all the pupils were.

They are now busy preparing and planning for their actual
