More Christmas Treats from Highfields

Continuing with our Christmas themed cooking lessons, the students at Highfields Alternative Academy made chocolate fudge  topped with either crunchie or mint aero.  Not sure if they’ll have any left for Christmas!

Christmas Baking

Community Day

On community day pupils and staff attended ‘Darfield All Saints Church’ The aim of the day is to work together to give back to the community that we live in. To make a difference. Everyone   worked extremely hard, edging paths, cutting back overgrown shrubs, weeding. It was an immensely productive day. You can certainly see from our before and after photographs.                                               


During Elements at Highfields, our pupils have been looking at Lincs2Nepal, the school, their culture and food.

Silhouette Collage

Within SEAL we have been covering Self Awareness and the 5 themes within the topic. The first is ‘Who am I? We decided to cut out a silhouette, so that we could build up a collage of our likes and dislikes. I’m sure you’ll agree they are pretty awesome!!

Mindfulness Glitter Jar

Some of our students created a glitter jar. The students chose 2 different colours of glitter to represent feelings, they also added various beads etc to add a different dimension. The aim of the jar is to help the students focus,when they have lots of thoughts and emotions running through their head. The glitter swirling around and then falling to the bottom of the jar represents a feeling of calm, being able to see things more clearly.glitter jars ready to put on blog
