This year twenty pupils who joined Holsworthy Community College this September were invited to participate in the HCC Summer School. This ran for one week from 21st to 25th August, with Literacy and Numeracy sessions in the mornings, followed by outdoor pursuit sessions with Outdoor Adventure in Widemouth Bay and Bude in the afternoon.
It was rewarding to see how much confidence and resilience the pupils gained over the week in the engaging Literacy and Numeracy activities as well as the afternoon sessions which consisted of:-
Day 1. Teambuilding at Outdoor Adventure on the cliffs at Bude
Day 2. Canoeing in threes on the canal at Bude
Day 3. Body boarding at Widemouth Bay
Day 4. Kayaking in pairs in Bude
Day 5. Climbing and abseiling on Maer cliffs
The enthusiasm and full participation of the pupils ensured a very successful week, with Miss Horn and Mr Kerslake thoroughly enjoying the fun outdoor activities too.
Miss Horn delivered engaging Literacy sessions, culminating in the superb ‘5 Senses at the Beach’ poems, Mrs Curry created active Maths Olympics with fun Numeracy sessions on the Astroturf, Mr Kerslake supported in his role as Teaching Assistant.
