This half term our Year 7 Historians have been working towards the much-anticipated Castles Project! They learnt facts about local and national castles via a game of 'Top Trumps' against their peers. The lesson got very competitive and students had fun earning reward points for the most correct answers!
Our Year 10 Business students enjoyed a day out at Banham Zoo learning how it operates. Naturally the zoo must run as a successful business to allow it to continue to play a part in the conversation and care of its variety of animals from around the world. They investigated how market research is used to find out customer needs as well as studying the customer services offered. An introduction to Milky, the eagle owl was also part of this unique experience
We were delighted to welcome our guest Fernando Batalla, Principal of Taronja Spanish School in Valencia, who gave a seminar in his native tongue to students at the academy with the aim of promoting cultural awareness. We learned about traditions, customs and festivals that make Spain a unique and different country. Students responded very well to the content delivered in Spanish and are excited about the prospect of a study trip to Valencia in the future.
TNHA students & staff taking part ‘non uniform day’ in aid of the charity whose aim is to “change the lives of children and young people across the UK”. Happy to play our part to help.
Curriculum Day at the academy saw students learning ‘off timetable’. Amongst the subjects discussed were attitudes around mental health.
Demonstrating both maturity and thoughtfulness the session was very successful with students making a display noting ways in which to support their own mental wellbeing.
Students are invited to wear non-uniform on Fri 15 November (paying £1 towards Children in Need). Collection buckets will be at the entrance to the academy.
Students proudly wear their services uniforms to mark Armistice Day. The academy will fall silent at 11am whilst we hold a two minute silence in remembrance.
