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

Quiz time for Crew Piper

During this strange time it is always good to keep laughing and smiling and this morning Crew Piper joined in on a crew quiz led by Ben and Jake. It was full of random questions and a couple of challenges to keep everyone laughing (mainly at me). Well done to Olliver L on winning. It was great to chat to everyone about Easter and what they have been up to over the past week. We have met a few pets this week Josh’s pug Stanlee and Kiera’s new puppy Marley. A few of the crew have been baking and helping in the garden and Jake has a new hairstyle.

I have asked Crew Piper to send me in some pictures for us to share so hopefully they will be posted next week. Remember our next check in Tuesday 10.30 and then Friday 11.30 (Olliver L quiz). If everyone can attend that would be great.

Thanks to Oliver G who has sent me a picture of the flowers they are going to plant to re create their garden. Also thanks to Ben for showing us some tricks in the garden.

Stay safe from Crew Piper
