Antarctic Day - posted 25th Mar

A group of Year 7 students took part in an Antarctic Workshop. We welcomed three scientists, two of whom were able to share their first hand experiences of life in Antarctica. They talked extensively about whaling through the years and what was happening to the environment and the steps that will be necessary to make the world sustainable. The students carried out some drama work, re-enacting what their ideas of life in the harsh conditions of the Antarctic were, as well as creative writing tasks. Students were asked to think about careers in this environment and also the wider picture of careers in Science.

A week of trips at WVC - posted 8th Mar

It was a week full of trips for WVC. Year 11 History students spent the day at Norwich Castle. They looked at four different time periods in medicine, with the help of brilliant actors, and then made a judgement at the end of the day about which time period saw the most progress! Year 8 students went to the Globe Theatre in two groups across two days. They visited the exhibition and then took part in some workshops to do with the Shakespeare texts they are studying. There was also a GCSE Drama trip to see The Woman in Black at the Fortune Theatre, London. Year 11 Geography students visited Hunstanton to assist their coursework.

WVC & LECA Ski trip 2019 to Alpendorf - posted 23rd Feb

  As soon as we arrived at Alpendorf, it was clear that the twenty-eight hour bus journey had been worth it. Climbing up the mountain in the gondola on the first day of skiing, the scenery just seemed to get better and better; picturesque mountaintops rising out of dense pine forests and brushing the clear, blue sky. And when we reached the top, lugging our skis and stomping across the snow in our boots, the slopes seemed to glow almost fluorescently. To me, a complete beginner, the thought of sliding down those huge hills seemed really daunting at the start of the first day, but throughout the week we negotiated first the slopes at the top of the button lifts, then the chairlifts, and eventually skiing down to take a different gondola back up the mountain. I was amazed by how much progress I had made: by the end of the week I was confident skiing down slopes that had seemed impossible on that first morning.
