Summer School 2013!

There was a hive of activity for some of the new Year 7 intake during the summer holidays as The Axholme Academy launched its free summer school. Over a period of two weeks, students created a visual and written diary to document their journey as they took part in a wide range of numeracy and literacy workshops across a diverse range of subject areas such as: maths, English, geography, art, drama, history, RE, media, PE and technology.

There was a hive of activity for some of the new Year 7 intake during the summer holidays as The Axholme Academy launched its free summer school.

The summer school, run by teachers and support staff, provided a great way to support the students in the transition to their secondary education by getting to know the Academy and its staff, make new friends, learn new skills and develop confidence.

Activities included: team building games, studio photography, photo manipulation using Photoshop, animation techniques and media terms, maths brain teasers and skills such as proportion and ratio, a treasure hunt, map making, cookery, sculpture,  creative writing, drama exercises and sports events.

There were also a few special treats over the course of the two weeks, including a day out to Pleasure Island, Cleethorpes, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Lincoln Castle and Cathedral, the Pink Pig Farm and a surprise trip to The Forbidden Corner in North Yorkshire.
