Hit the Wall: Keep Learning and Give

10 February 2021

Our Year 7-9 girls have continued to enjoy their ‘Hit the Wall’ afternoons in the approach to half term, showcasing boundless creativity and individuality in their activities. The weekly sessions, designed to support wellbeing and foster positivity during these unusual times, allow our younger students to spend some quality time away from their screens and turn their attention to something fresh and fun.

The focus for last week’s session was ‘Keep Learning’ and we enjoyed hearing about the girls’ interpretations of the theme. Here are some of our favourites:

  • Learning how to crochet (Rosie – Y8)
  • Learning how to make an Indian sweet (Avvanii – Y8)
  • Learning how to make apple and pear turnovers (Rose – Y8)
  • Learning about logic and cyber security through the CyberFirst questions, as well as through reading a book about Ciphers (Amy – Y8)
  • Learning about astrological signs from the plaques and statues at the Radcliffe Observatory (Rosa – Y8)


For the final session of the half term, the theme was ‘Give’ and the girls engaged in a variety of heart-warming activities, from cooking dinner for the family (Amy -Y8) to painting a picture for a friend (Kimia – Y8).

Well done to all of our ‘Hit the Wall’ participants: you never cease to delight us with your originality and creative flair!
