Year 10 and 11 trip to the Totem Pottery School.

At Totem Ceramics, our students learned about the different techniques used to work with clay, as they created their own decorative box. Students were asked to add a design to their box that reflected their interests, passions or hobbies. By the end of our visit, there was an array of very artistic final pieces!

 

We hope to collect our pottery after the holidays, once it has been dried and fired in the kiln … so watch this space!

Carry On Regardless. Emerald Online...

Despite the interruption to normal schooling, brought about by the covid-19 pandemic and all the upheaval that has brought to our lives, Emerald Sixth Form staff and students have continued with their education regardless.

A streamlined timetable was introduced to try to reduce the continuous screen-time online lessons would cause, with high expectations of independent study, consistent with the ethos of Emerald Sixth Form, in place from the beginning.

The participation of everybody concerned has been enthusiastic with positive outcomes for all. Of course we all miss the personal contact being at school means and we look forward to the day when we can all be together again.

But until then, stay calm and carry on!

Saint Valentine's Day...

The Day of Love is a key day at Emerald Sixth Form.

 

We enjoy dressing up in red and delivering personal messages in especially drawn cards. We love to have a break within our studying time to let others next to us know that we care and we enjoy sharing the same school.

 

Games and chocolates are a must!

Visit to the Chocolate Factory...

On 6th February, it was as though Christmas had come whizzing back around the corner for the students in Year 10 and Year 11. We drove to the one and only chocolate factory in Mijas pueblo: The Mayan Monkey Chocolate Factory.

Arriving in the morning, we spent the day exploring their factory, learning about the history of chocolate and cocoa beans, observing the machines and equipment and, of course our favourite task, making our own fresh, customised chocolate.

 

While still considering hygiene, we made our own chocolate ourselves. Not just chocolate bars, but also fruit-dipped chocolate, bonbons and hot chocolate mix leftover! Personally, the entertaining part for me wasn't stuffing it in my mouth the instant it was ready. Instead I preferred being able to design it all to my personal taste, from the type of chocolate (milk, white or dark) to the toppings (dry fruits, nuts, even more chocolate...). They provided as much as our creative minds could think of!

In my opinion, this was a wonderful trip, in which the output made wasn't the only purpose of going, but also to discover more about the nutrient itself.
