GCSE Art – London Trip 2015:

On Wednesday the 25th February, the Year 10 GCSE Art classes took a trip to London, and visited several art galleries which included: Tate Britain and the Tate Modern.  These art galleries gave us a unique opportunity to experience many different forms of art.  Our knowledge improved as we explored the galleries and saw works from artists such as Evelyn Dunbar, Philip Mercier and David Hockney.

The visit also gave us the opportunity to see a large variety of art styles such as modern sculpture, Cubist painting and pre-20th Century art.  Overall we enjoyed the unique experience and the opportunity to see the art which will help us during our GCSE Art course and provide us with lots of new ideas and ways of working.

Ski Trip 2015

A group of thirty-five year eight, nine and ten students from Court Fields were fortunate enough to be able travel to Austria last week to go and enjoy the fabulous skiing and mountain scenery that it had to offer.  We set off in our coach on Friday evening with a long journey ahead and the excitement and anticipation aboard was amazing.  No one could wait to get going!  By midnight on Friday we had made it to the ferry and began our ‘voyage’ across the channel towards France.  From there we would go through Belgium, Luxembourg and Switzerland before finally making it to Austria.  The amount of snow and mountains visible from the coach windows grew and grew as the journey went on and a steady supply of films and food kept all on-board entertained and happy.

By Saturday evening, we pulled into the drive of the Aktivhotel Ederleiten in the town of Bruck in the Ziller valley.  The hotel and view were masked by the night and as we made our way inside we were greeted with a much needed hot meal before going to find our rooms.  It was all very welcoming and friendly and we were delighted to get to bed and get some real rest!

Yr7 netball

The Year 7 Netball team played in their first Central Venue League at Court Fields on Wednesday 25th Feb. They played a total of four games against visiting teams from Kingsmead, Taunton Academy and Heathfield. The team made a good start against Taunton Academy with a very close game with Court Fields winning 1-0. This seemed to give the team the confidence they needed as they started playing some very good netball, defending well and creating lots of shooting opportunities. This resulted in them winning their next two games and only losing their last game by one goal. The time they have spent practicing together is starting to pay off and we look forward to our next CVL tournament on the 11th March.

Ten Tors

On Saturday 31st January the Ten Tors group went for a practice walk on the northern part of Dartmoor.  The group had to cope with a variety of weather conditions including sun, rain, sleet and even snow flurries!  All the students demonstrated improvements in their navigation skills and were able to walk for the whole day in testing conditions without complaint.

The next part of the training programme will involve students walking longer distances and wild camping for two days whilst carrying all their food and equipment.

 

Netball

On Wednesday 28th January the Year 7 and Year 8 Court Fields Netball teams played their first games of the season against Kingsmead. In freezing conditions the girls played some good Netball and the Year 7’s made a strong start. This was the first time they had played together as a team and they defended effectively only allowing 1 Kingsmead goal to be scored in the first quarter. The Year 8 team also defended well and only conceded 2 goals in the first quarter.

Yr9 Football Victory

On Monday 26th January, Court Fields Yr 9 team took on Heathfield in their opening Cup fixture of the year. A brisk start by Court Fields led to a goal by Rohan Poulsom. This was clocked at just under 3 1/2 minutes. This was a definite wake up call for Heathfield who promptly upped their game and responded to make it 1-1. So the scene was set for what turned out to be a fantastic display of football from both sides. Rohan Poulsom would find the net twice more for his hat-trick and Nic Denslow would add to the tally to make it 4 goals to Court Fields. However, Heathfield would answer any questions asked of them and managed to score in equal measure. When the full time whistle blew, the score line was all square at 4 a piece.

SouthWest inter-schools climbing competition 2015

The Court Fields climbing squad returned to The Quay to defend their 2014 title in round one of the 2015 SW inter-schools competition. 96 young climbers from 13 schools took part event which offered 10 top rope routes of varying difficulty. The standard was much more competitive this year and the finish was incredibly close. Despite the relatively young age and inexperience of the Court Fields team we were delighted to come away with yet another victory. All the team climbed very well, but special congratulations are due to first-time member Ellie Norris who floated her way up several hard routes adding valuable points to our score and Joe Walmsley who flashed all the routes, sealing the win.

Congratulations to all the school teams who took part on the day and as always, thanks to Mr Walmsley for his help and support and the Quay staff for their organisation.
The date of the  final bouldering round is yet to be announced. Meanwhile we welcome students who want to try the sport to join us on Friday evening wall trips. Do see Mr Jenkins or Mr Dickson for more information.

Public speaking

On the 22nd of January, six students in year 10, went to Bishop Foxes school to compete in the Youth Speaks public speaking competition.

Court Fields entered two teams into the senior category and each team had  three roles to fill, chairperson, main speaker and vote of thanks.

The chairperson had two minutes to speak, main speaker had six minutes to speak and vote of thanks had two minutes. The main speaker also had two minutes to spontaneously answer a question from a member of the audience, and both of our main speakers did a great job under the intense pressure.  The Rotary Club Youth Speaks Competition required for a team of three to talk about any subject the team feels passionate about. Katie Drohan, Abi Merrell and Becky Merrell spoke about ‘The Secret Life of a Goldfish’ whereas Kyusu Ntentabunga, Katie Rylatt and Michael Qureshi spoke about ‘Modern Day Slavery’.
