We have loved participating in the first Isle of Wight Day! Students have taken part in a number of activities within lessons in the lead up to the day.

History students studied Victorians and the Romans on the Island as well looking at dinosaurs, smuggling and festivals.

In Geography topics also included festivals as well as wildlife and tourism on the Island.

English lessons were a great opportunity to look at Isle of Wight dialect and using some of the landmarks of the Island in poetry.

Students in Food Technology made salads (both fruit and vegetable) and learnt about food miles and seasonal fruit and vegetables.

Joy Ballard, our Principal said:

'I have always loved the Island and have been enjoying visiting all the attractions since I moved here a year ago. It is important that our students and the wider community have the opportunity to reflect and celebrate everything the Island has to offer and take pride in where they live, study and work’.

We hope that this day is included in the calendar every year as we already have lots of ideas for another celebration of our Island.
