Evergreens - Upper Sixth Form

Welcome to Evergreens - Upper 6th Form
Class Update 6th July 2020
Hi all, 
I hope everyone is doing well, and continuing to keep safe. 
Thank you to everyone who took part in the Cornwall School Games and shared videos and photos of their activities - it was great to see everyone getting involved!!
We also have some exciting information from Andrew and the Lower 6th Form to join with their Drama School Project - all the information and video/website links are below and Andrew has updated the new resources for 'Act 2' for this week. 
If you are keen to access and use these resources and have some work to share/show me, please email and let me know as Andrew would love to see it too!
I know everyone will be missing friends and staff members as we have been away from school for a long time. If you need anything at all, or would like to share photos and pictures of what you have been doing at home please continue to email me as I would love to see them! 
This will help to create a sense of community in a time in many other ways we are required to be distant. 
My email is nthomson@nancealverne.org.uk please do not hesitate to get in touch and share any pictures, or news. 
The slides below (at bottom of the page underneath the photos) share an example of some of the ideas and resources that can be used to support the students at this time. There are website links attached to each section also to give you ideas and activities for home. Please ask if you would like anything specific to be emailed, or printed and sent in the post and I can make sure this happens on a weekly basis.
Our weekly video chats with the class are brilliant - so lovely to see everyone and say hello. 
*Reminder -there will be another class video call on Wednesday 8th July at 1.30pm - hope to see you all then!*
Thanks, keep safe and well and keep in touch 

The Lucerna Project Take Over – The Twelfth Night - Week 2

18th June

Hi all,

I hope you have all had a brilliant week and enjoyed all of the activities that the Lucerna Project have created for you.  The pictures and videos you shared were brilliant and the students from the Lucerna Project loved your work.


This week the Lucerna Project have opened the second act in their website and have some more brilliant things for you to do.  We have posted the activity packs for you and there is also a link below, if you wanted to print an extra copy.

I would like to say thanks for the photos of the consent form that we have received so far.  If you have shared any photos could you please also sign and email a copy of the consent form, so that the Lucerna Project are able to use the pictures.  The consent forms are an important part of the Lucerna Project's work and allow them to receive extra funding to work with us, so please sign them.

I hope you all manage to follow the links below and have a great time completing this project.


See you soon



We cater for the oldest students in the school, and provide the learning environment for young people aged between 16 and 19 years. We are very lucky to have a whole section of the school to ourselves, which means we can divide into our activities daily and join together at key times during the week with Lower Evergreens  for Work Related Learning and Sports and Leisure activities.

We are working towards qualifications as and when we leave school; This is really important to us, as it means we can move on into adulthood with the best options possible – some of our friends last year went to college, and others joined adult resource centres to develop their work skills even more.

Naomi is our teacher and she is helped by Sue, Julie, Tracie, and Nick – meaning we can spend a lot of our week out and about in the local community, enjoying school based work experience and practice skills we need for our adult life in the local area.

We hope you enjoyed looking at our web page – and enjoy looking at what we do. You are welcome to come and visit us in school and ask us about our learning!

Pathways Learning
As we enter the Sixth Form, we are supported to choose the right Pathway for us. There are four Pathways and each one provides us with different qualification options, our curriculum offer and the support we have for Work Related Learning and Careers advice. 
There is more detail about our Pathways on the page 'Post 16' which is under the Key Information section on this website. 
Please take a look at our Offer information too - it talks about what we will learn, how we will develop and the qualifications we can work towards for English, Maths and Life Skills. 
TIS (Trauma Informed Schools)
As a class team, we are aware of the practices of TIS and embed activities and games in to our everyday work.
We have the opportunity to use the expertise of our TIS practitioner who is available to work with children as well as offer us advice when needed.
For more information on TIS and it's use throughout the whole school, please see https://www.nancealverne.org.uk/web/trauma-informed_school/489253 or contact us at school. 
The Cornwall Virtual School Games
Monday 22nd to Friday 26th June 2020
There will be a week of sports based physical activity challenges young people can get involved in.
The challenges are suitable for primary and secondary aged children and have ideas for adaptations to suit all abilities, making them inclusive for all.
The challenges include:
• Monday 22nd – Athletics
• Tuesday 23rd – Bowls/Boccia
• Wednesday 24th – Gymnastics
• Thursday 25th – Ball Sports
• Friday 26th - Tennis
As well as the above, there will also be a separate task running throughout the whole week called ‘Making up the Miles’.
This will involve walking, running, cycling, skating or scooting to collect as many miles in distance as you can.
We have registered as a school, and will be collecting evidence of people's 'points' which they have scored across the challenges each day next week. 
These will be added together and total scores recorded too. 
A an opening ceremony video will be ready to watch on You Tube on Monday 22nd June and I will share the link here when we have access to it. 
Hope you will join in!
