Year 9 are currently learning about the History of Pop music and how it originated from Jazz and Blues. They have been introduced to the ‘Diddley Bow’ (an early type of blues guitar made out of a plank, some nails and a tin can). Harvey (Yr 9) decided to make his own – now he needs to learn how to play it like Seasick Steve!
The Stour Valley Karate Club held its annual summer karate course from 15–19 August 2016. Over 20 students aged 8–16 years came from the Stoke College and Stour Valley karate clubs to train.
Stoke College are extremely grateful to Mr Andrew Kite and Newnham College for the hugely generous donation of fixtures and furniture which we collected last week. Newnham College is undergoing a major rebuilding project and was able to pass on to us many items they no longer required which will be useful throughout Stoke.
