Duke of Edinburgh's Award

Miss Capon is setting challenges each week for the new cohort of Year 8 Duke of Edinburgh's Award candidates. Have a look at what they've been up to here:

Volunteering Workout

(18/05) This week's DofE challenge saw the Year 8 students become personal trainers to a family member as part of the volunteering section. 

There were some very creative ideas including: circuits, obstacle courses, board games and running challenges. 

This week's winner is Paige who helped her mum by playing a dice game! Well done to everyone!

Geocaching

(02/06) Last week, Miss Capon set the Year 8 DofE students the challenge to explore their local area and discover geocaches.

To do this they needed to learn how to read a map and follow this until finding the geocache.

This week's winner is Blythe who managed to find 16. Even Miss Capon didn't want to miss out on the fun and joined in herself!

Cooking on a Stove

(09/06) Last weeks DofE challenge saw the Year 8 students take to the kitchen where they were tasked to create a dinner using 5 ingredients and the stove. This was to replicate the type of cooking students do whilst camping.

This weeks winner was a very colourful and creative dinner by Chloe.

Well done everyone!

Music Appreciation

(29/06) The Year 8 students were challenged to listen to some music, pick their favourite and then write some information about it to show their musical appreciation.

Lots of students enjoyed and joined in with this challenge and are hoping that others will take some time to themselves to listen to some uplifting music.

This weeks winner is Millie C who really thought about the hidden meaning behind the song.
