Yesterday in Crew we had a silent conversation to discuss what it look/feels like to Work hard, Get Smart and Be Kind. All of crew had great contributions and we met with Crew Stan Lee to have a wider conversation about examples students have seen. Great work Crew!!
If we get crew right we get everything right!
Crews in Year 7 and 8 have certainly been working hard and getting crew right during Friday book club. It was brilliant to see students sharing reading and discussing their crew book together.
What a brilliant way to end a week!
Today is AR for Stan Lee! However, before we start we always circle up and do crew check in. In today’s crew Frankie did a round of splat, this got everyone up off of their feet and engaged. Our Winners were Beth and Alfie. Well done!
Over the past two weeks students in X25 have been working with the Conversation Club. A charity based in Doncaster that offers support to refugees and asylum seekers. We have taken part in workshops about Migration and on Monday we had the privilege of meeting and interviewing people who are currently seeking asylum in Doncaster. Their stories gave us a real insight into the realities of migration and made us realise that the community of Doncaster can do more to help.
Our task now in X25 is to come up with ways we can help and put them into practice! After all… above all else is compassion!
Crew Piper having been learning a new skill this week. They have been learning to sign their name and on the back of this they have decided to learn how to sign Lewis Capaldi’s song Somebody to Love. Here is them practising this in afternoon crew. So proud of them for all their hard work. Go Crew Piper.
Yesterday in crew Tomlinson Tom helped other students understand algebra. He showed great courage by presenting input and output on the board with great explanations. Thanks Tom great work!
This week we have reflected on ‘working hard’ in sessions. Why we need to work hard and what is the purpose in doing so. We then discussed this together and made suggestions in crew of how we could achieve this.
What really impressed me was how open Stan Lee were to constructive feedback and how sensitive they were. What a great way to end the week!
Well done Year 7/8 Football team on the 1st game of the season against Danum. Score 2-1 to Danum. Unlucky as the team played fantastic for their first game. Well done. Keep coming to training.
This week in our academic crew session we gave another member of crew a grade for their HOWL’s, giving reasons and examples of why we believe that grade would be justified. We then discussed what crew members had said to see whether others agreed or disagreed. It was brilliant to see crew challenge and support each other to make sure we are all striving to be the best version of ourselves. Great work Crew Tomlinson!
Crew Piper are reading the fantastic book The Maze Runner in book club Fridays. Some excellent reading from students on Friday. We also had a demonstration of the weeks learning in Maths. Keep it up
