The Great Outdoors
Taking the curriculum outdoors can have a considerably beneficial impact on the learning and development of our pupils. The pupils have had lots of fun in outdoor learning this term enhancing their problem solving skills as well as developing their communication and resilience. Outdoor learning provides our pupils with endless opportunities for exploration, experimentation and contextual learning.
Fundraising in Year 7
At Springwell Barnsley, the pupils and teaching staff in Year 7 have been completing a daily mile to raise money for Barnsley Hospital Charity during the second lockdown period. Starting on November 9th the pupils have been walking, running and jogging a mile every day, regardless of the weather.
Barnsley Hospital Charity will use the money raised by Year 7 to buy technology, which will enable patients to video call their friends and family while visitation is suspended. The fundraising has been a great success and we are extremely proud of Year 7 for all their dedication and hard work
For Kindness Week 2020, pupils at Springwell Barnsley wanted to focus on helping families who may be less fortunate provide a good Christmas for their children. All classes collected toys and they were all donated to the Westfield Resource Centre in South Elmsall, where members of Just Homes Care boxed and prepared all the toys to be distributed to families struggling this Christmas. They were very touched by our generosity. We would like to thank all members of the school community for their generosity and for making our Kindness Week another great success.
