Education News | Motion and Commotion at Local School | Andover & VillagesThe end of term brought Winton School’s Motion and Commotion week; and there was certainly a great deal of both!

The fun started on Tuesday afternoon as a group of students departed for Prague. Then, on Wednesday the fun started proper as the headteacher boarded a coach with staff and 50 Year 7 students bound for PGL adventure in Shropshire for 3 days.

Motion & Commotion gives students the opportunity to take part in a wide range of activities that they might not otherwise try as well as developing a sense of adventure and resilience. Students took part in activities such as paintball, karting at Thruxton, inflatable madness, cake baking, upcycling, art, photography trips to London and Bournemouth, ten pin bowling and much, much more. Some of the students even created a short version of Oliver the musical and performed it to an invited audience!

An amazing week and we cannot wait for Motion & Commotion 4 next year which includes trips to Kent, Barcelona, Iceland, the Ardeche and Florence; watch out for the brochure in the Autumn term.nd
