CREST Stars Award

I’ve blogged about this before, but now we’ve had a go, I thought it was time for an update.

We have a lunchtime Science/PHSE Club – Explorers  Club – that meets for 30 minutes once a week. We have about 12 students who attend, from across KS3, 4 and 5, with some who choose to dip in and out.

We started on the first section of the STARS Award at the end of September, and split the group into three. One group were doing the ‘Shadows’ activity, one looking for minibeasts and the other looking for colours. Pupils took 6 lunchtime sessions to complete the activity that they had chosen, producing work for a wall display in the process (I need to take a photo).

Last week we had a reflection session, where they shared their learning and were awarded their first sticker on the path to completing the award. Now we swap staff and run the activities again with a different set of pupils. Feedback so far is positive from both staff and students. Even the governors are impressed as they too have seen the wall display.
