Shakespearian Theatre visits The Venue and Walton High!

ShakespearianTheatrecollageOn 16th October, a travelling theatre company came to perform Macbeth and Hamlet to students in years 11 and 8. Students made the most of this great opportunity to see texts that they have studied and also take part in small workshops. This gave them the experience of Elizabethan stagecraft and learning scripts in an authentic atmosphere which will no doubt be useful in their classroom explorations of the plays. 

Many thanks to the SayTwo Production team for coming to Walton High. 

Once there was Magic… at Walton High!

oncemagic2The worldwide bestselling author-illustrator Cressida Cowell (creator of the How to Train Your Dragon series) flew in to Walton High last month to launch her latest title The Wizards of Once.
Year 7, The Big Read competition winners and students in Years 5 and 6 at New Chapter and Heronsgate were lucky enough to attend a presentation where Cressida shared her top tips on becoming an author-illustrator and spoke about the inspiration for her award winning writing. 
How to Train Your Dragon has sold over 8 million books worldwide in 38 languages. It is an award-winning DreamWorks film series and we were fortunate enough to hear Cressida reveal behind-the-scenes details about how her books became such popular films.  
As well as some very famous fans, Cressida can now count students at Walton High amongst the many readers who are absolutely spellbound by her writing!

5957103d64d39 DSC 0034 1On a summer’s evening, we celebrated student’s creative work through displays of Art, Food, Design, Photography and Music.

Students, parents and staff enjoyed looking at a selection of paintings, sculptures, garments, products and cupcakes, whilst enjoying the performances and refreshments.

The announcement of the Photography Competition winners took place at 6.00 which was judged by the photographer Ellie Merridale. It was lovely to have Ellie judge the entries, as she had once won the competition when she was a student at Walton High. The winners were Portraits (Under 13) – Jaclyn Moorhouse, Portraits (Under 16) – Roslyn Moorhouse, Portraits (Over 16) – Lorraine Tadman, Closely Observed (Under 13) – Eve Newall, Closely Observed (Under 16) – Ashley Long and Closely Observed (Over 16) – Paul Bloj.

HARRISON REED and GEORGE HO (YR9)

Harrison Reed (YR10) and George Ho (YR9) both competed in the Club: Connect Under 14 Boys 4 x 100m Relay for Milton Keynes Athletics Club at the Müller Grand Prix in Birmingham during the summer holidays.

George ran a strong first leg and Harrison ran a terrific fourth leg, narrowing a gap of about twenty metres considerably in that final stretch. The team finished in second place with a new club record time of 47.33 secs, smashing the previous record by two seconds.

This was a big Athletics meeting with the likes of Mo Farah and other household names competing.

Harrison had the opportunity to discuss his plans for the future with Devon Allen (USA), who finished third in the 110m Hurdles.

George’s overriding memory of the day was looking up and seeing himself on the big screen in the stadium at the start of the race. He’d never experienced anything quite like that before and said it was totally inspiring. He was also very pleased to have met GB Sprinter, Adam Gemili.

George is pictured on the left and Harrison on the right in their team photo.

Very well done boys. It is incredible that two students from our school should both take part in the same race at such a prestigious event as this.
