Crew Tomlinson – Getting Creative

This week crew have been working really hard again! I wanted to share Max’s creative work making The Globe Theatre out of cake….which looked impressive and tasty….

Declan has also created a brilliant final product showing great drafting of work. Beautiful work!

We had 2 crew hangouts this week which were brilliant, the students have become more organised making sure they are on time which really helps us stick to the schedule to check in,  go through the tracker (to help students know where they are at with the work) and make sure everyone can speak….along with sometimes  managing to have a game too. On Tuesday our check in question was what are you looking most/least forward to about coming back to school in the future… We had a mixture of answers including looking forward to  seeing friends and working with others, with only one crew member not looking forward to the early morning starts…which I think a few people had forgotten!

On Thursday’s check in we had a music quiz which I tried to keep as up to date as possible and we had some fantastic marks….particularly well done to Fran, Tom And Danny for top marks!! I think next time I will play a few 80’s songs to make it a bit more of a challenge.

Great week again crew….Hope you all have a brilliant and well deserved break!

Crew Rosa Parks in lockdown.

Crew Rosa Parks have had another great week. There have been two birthdays, Sareena and Mrs C that were celebrated in a fun way. Virtual bingo took place……………Congratulations Elijah on your win!! Virtual charades was so funny, Fin miming Shrek, Andrew miming Forest Gump, with a wig as props courtesy of his Mum, Georgia gave us food for thought with her Harry Potter mime and there were many more superb mimes. Everyone was brilliant and it went really well. We will do it again for Rileys birthday.

The week has been busy work wise too, over half of Crew Rosa Parks have been awarded with Beautiful work for their Humanities work. Well done. I am really proud of the calibre of the work that is getting handed in. You are so on it Crew!!

We have had some more front covers shared for the Book of Memories that Crew are doing. They are superb. Thank you Elijah, Guraaj and Andrew.

Elijah has also been working on his nature section of the book.

He has shared what he can see in his garden and what he can see through his window.

A big shout out to Callum who 2 weeks ago was our gardening expert. He seems to be able to turn his hand to anything because this week he is showcasing his cooking skills.

A reminder that it is now the 2 week break for Crew, please don’t stop sharing the wonderful photos of the things that you are doing during half term, I love to see them and share them. Most of all though stay safe.

Crew Piper in lockdown

Another week of hard work and great efforts from Crew Piper. Very impressed with some of the fantastic pieces of art that has been created by crew. Here are just a few.


Crew hangout today was a quiz from Tom and Miss O’Grady. Winners were Macey and Olliver but I don’t know how they got all my riddles correct. It was nice to laugh and joke with crew today during the quiz and we even had some Tik tok’s dances in there.

Hope everyone has a lovely holiday and enjoys relaxing with family. Take care

Crew Piper

What am I grateful for and why?

We had a very uplifting and positive google hangout in crew this week….

Our Check in this week was What am I grateful for and why? We had some lovely heartfelt responses here they are:

Alfie: Having a healthy family and living near woods to explore.

Jacob: Video games.

Luke: T.V.

Frankie: Friends and family.

Millie: Having a healthy family.

Beth: Having a healthy family and her pet dog who is always happy (Photo to follow).

Meadow: Having a garden to enjoy the sun.

Lacie: Her little sister to make her laugh and cheer her up.

Miss Cross: Having a nice safe house to isolate in.

Mrs Pulham: My two Sons who always brighten my day.


Next our very own Bradley Walsh (Luke) took charge of our crew quiz, he put us through our paces and really tested our knowledge.

We had a variety of questions ranging from Whats the fastest animal in the world? to

which football team did Ryan Giggs play for?

Kyle was crowned quizzing champion this week.

Aaleyah is organising our crew activity for when we return to school, I cannot wait to see what she comes up with.

Hope crew have a restful couple of weeks, staff are still working the first week so please email myself or Miss Cross if you need anything.

Beautiful work.

Crew Rosa Parks have submitted some beautiful work this past week in all subjects. There has been some outstanding contributions, where the content and the craftsmanship and quality has been exceptional. A big shoutout this week goes to Elijah, Joshua and Holly.


We have all been working on a book of memories for us to look back on when this unprecedented time has passed. Our focus last week was our front cover and we discussed many different ideas as to what we could put on there and how we could design it. Drawing, colouring, writing and computers were all put forward as to the different ways we could present it. Holly has used her computer to design hers. What a fantastic set of memories represented just on the front cover.

Next week we are focusing on Nature Week. Some ideas for Crew to be looking at and having a go at are: Whats in my garden? Make your own bug house or What do you see on your daily walk?

Have a good week with this Crew Rosa Parks. I am really looking forward to seeing the results.

Stay safe!

Crew Tomlinson -Quizzed up

Crew Tomlinson have had another great week. We decided last week it would be really beneficial to have a 1:1 Google hangout where I could go through any issues and confusion with the work the students had. Crew members have been brilliant with this, having honest discussions to move forward with the work. We have had two crew sessions this week all together, which have been brilliant. Crew took part in a General Knowledge quiz on Tuesday, and we have arranged a music quiz for next week…where Mrs Burnitt it going to try and not put too many ‘old songs’ in!

I have received some great work from the students this week as well, including stunning Art work from Frankie and Declan.

Again I just want to praise Crew on their fantastic efforts this week and for the last few weeks. They are working really hard, asking for help when needed and supporting each other. Well Done Crew Tomlinson!!!

Year 7/8 Common Mission

As part of Common Mission in year 7/8 we are launching The Book of Memories. Crew leaders will be sharing this during google hangouts. We would like you to produce a virtual (slides) or book of your memories during this time so that we can look back and reflect on our time at home.

Each week you will be given a theme to help you create your book of memories and give you ideas of activities you might be able to do at home. Your crew leader will share the introduction with you and how you can make your book and also the first theme which is “What is in my cupboards”

We look forward to seeing your ideas and sharing with us what you have been up to whilst at home.

Stay Safe Everyone
