Thinking Outside The Box

Prep 5 have been thinking 'outside the box' and invited Prep 2 to get involved with their discussions. Questions asked ranged from: 'Is lined paper heavier than plain paper?' and 'What is the difference between adults and children?' The discussions were child-lead and all were encouraged to explain the reason behind their answer. There were some great responses and high-level thinking from both classes.

Boarders have had the opportunity to attend scuba diving sessions, held at Barnstaple Leisure Centre and run by Easy Diver. Students are making quick progress towards achieving their PADI Open Water qualification with only the open water dive remaining in order to gain the certificate.

The course has been well delivered and various skills needed for safe diving, like kit assembly, buddy checks, underwater communication and survival skills have been covered. 

More photos from the sessions so far are available to see on our Facebook page.
