It’s fantastic to see our X24 students working so hard during our first week back. Praise butterflies this week were awarded to Isaac, Vinnie, Aaisha, Chris, Jaggy, Courtney, Kyra, Bella, Charlotte, Milla, Charlie and Harpreet. Butterflies were awarded by staff and by students for consistent hard work, being kind, showing compassion and in one case – for being epic!
I got the pleasure of working with X24 today and they worked really hard on their artwork in X-block today! They are currently looking at different sculptures as a source to draw from and creating form when using tone.
With there being no fixtures now until after half term there will be no Rugby or Football training on Monday 15th Oct and Thursday 18th Oct respectively.
Rugby training will resume on the first Tuesday back after half term before a game versus Hall Cross on Wednesday 8th Nov for year 7 and 8 – more details to follow.
Football training will be shelved for boys until after Christmas as the league fixtures are now delayed until it is light enough again to play them after school. Basketball club will begin on Mondays after school in its place.
I will post full after school club info for next half term later this week.
Learning materials for the self study unit on ‘The Nervous System’ have been posted on Google Classroom for both 8 Admiral and 8 Skipper. This work is due to be completed in STEAM books by Monday 15th.
There has been a change in the arrangements for Wednesday’s football fixture. Conisbrough are unable to field a Y7 team so we will only be taking a Y8 team. Y7 should attend training on Thursday as usual.
The Y8 team will be the same as last week;
Please tick you name on the board to confirm availability. We should return between 5:30 and 6.
Well done to all students who represented XP in last week’s Rugby and Football fixtures… you can find a few action shots by clicking here…
Next week we have boys C24 and C25 boys football fixtures on Wednesday 10th October – both away at Consisbrough De Warenne. I will put the names of the students involved on the PE notice board so they can tick their name and confirm availability as they did in the week just gone.
For those parents wanting to attend the Rugby fixture tonight the address is Sheffield Tigers RUFC S17 3AB. We will be setting off asap after school ends and so hope to get there just after 4 – traffic permitting. Once we are there we don’t have any allocated kick-off times but we will be playing any time from then… hope this helps. I will ask students to keep you updated on approximate return time.
Thank you to the students for an outstanding turn-out once again for football training.

All students need to bring their own boots (Girls are playing on astro), shin-pads, football socks and shorts.
