Arnold View Outreach
Last half term I was given the privilege to work with the foundation children at Arnold View Primary School. This consisted of delivering two drama workshops and a story telling session with small groups of children.
Within the drama sessions, the children used physical theatre, still image, sound collage and narration to explore the book Handa’s Surprise. The children were extremely enthusiastic and keen to be involved in all aspects of the workshop. We used masks and props (including real fruit to bring the story to life!) to get into character before looking at storytelling and narration.
I was also privileged to take some of our talented year 7 students to read to small groups of children, and they all engaged in reading some classics such as The Gruffalo, and The Room on the Broom. We ended the storytelling session watching another cartoon classic, Mr Ben, and everyone enjoyed sharing and eating popcorn!
I’m looking forward to working with the foundation pupils at Arnold View again!

Glitzy Dance Routines for Arnold Hill Girls
India Roberts and Lucy Fretwell, both year 10 students at Arnold Hill Academy, competed against dance schools all over the Nottingham area to be selected as dancers for the Aladdin pantomine at the Nottingham Playhouse.
This was Kenneth Alan Taylor’s 33rd consecutive panto at Nottingham Playhouse, and ran from the 28th November to the 21st January. Between them the girls appeared in over 120 shows and had a fantastic time performing to packed audiences.
Well done girls!
Most Able Students Visit Magdalen College
A small group of our Most Able Year 12 students recently enjoyed a taster day at the University of Oxford, Magdalen College. Accompanied by Ms Carter, Head of Sixth Form, they were taken on a tour of the beautiful grounds (including a deer park), talked to students currently studying at Oxford, delighted in a two course lunch and had a Classics lecture. Our students were absolutely fantastic and represented the academy brilliantly. Everyone involved agreed it was the perfect way to spend a Monday!
