The Marshmallow Challenge.

Our Year 7 Steps to Success students took part in the Marshmallow Challenge. Students had to work to together to create the tallest structure they could, using only spaghetti, marshmallows and sticky tape. They had to come up with a design and then problem solve how to create it in the limited time they were given. SENStudents

Cake Competition

IMG_7901On Friday 24th March Court Fields School held its annual cake completion in aid of ‘Red Nose Day’.  The entries were particularly impressive this year with entries from all year groups and houses.IMG_7900

Congratulations go to; Oliver Rogers a year 9 student, for his inventive interpretation of the theme, Charley-May McDonald a year 7, who added a creative three dimension element to her cake, Hollie Cullen and Ellie Popplestone, year 8 students for their professional chocolate cakes and Emily Horswell a year 11 for her eye catching Red velvet cake.

IMG_7902The sale of the cakes was extremely popular with students queuing to purchase the creative goodies at break and lunch times; £64 was raised.

Well done and thank you to all students who baked and/or ate cake and a special thank you to Miss Coggins and Mrs Frayling for organising the event.

Duke of Edinburgh Expedition 2017

Duke of Edinburgh Expedition

 

Silver Duke of Edinburgh Practice Expedition

 

Over the weekend of the 17th – 19th March, nine students and four staff braced the 40 miles per hour gusts of wind and horizontal rain to do a 3 day and 2 night expedition across Exmoor. The teams started just outside Wheddon Cross and walked to Minehead, staying at Cloud Farm in the Lorna Doone Valley and spending a night in Porlock.

Despite numerous blisters and the challenging weather conditions the groups really enjoyed their expedition and learnt a lot in preparation for their assessed expedition in July.
