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:

Kyle: Football and Fifa (no surprises there Kyle loves his footie).

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).

Aaleyah: Her pet rabbit (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.

Crew Stan Lee have got a new challenge this week of creating a book of memories to capture these weird and wonderful times, we have a cooking challenge to complete and a nature section, students can make a bird feeder or just capture an image out of their window.

I can’t wait to see what crew comes up with !

Alfie has rose the challenge of making his garden beautiful and what a magnificent job he and his family have done.

Alfie is also quite the artist with his beautiful painting of a seascape, Well Done Alfie…. you have had an amazing week !

My personal challenge for crew is completing the Couch to 5k, I’ve just completed week 2 ! Only 7 weeks to go, I’m exhausted just thinking about it ( ha ha ).

Miss Cross and myself also let crew into a little secret …… that I will be Crew Leader for Stan Lee while Miss Cross is on maternity leave.

I’m so excited and up for the challenge bring it on !!

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

Crew Stan Lee Weekly Check-In

Fantastic attendance in google hangout this week!

It was lovely to catch up again and Aaleya was a brilliant crew host.  Our check-in this week was :

If you could be any dog breed what would choose and why?

We got a Pug, Alsatian and Jack Russell to name a few.

We then discussed what plans we all had over Easter which ranged from, gardening, cooking, doing a 5k run and sleeping (ha ha).

Myself and Miss Cross are so proud of how crew have adapted to our new way of learning and getting smart, and we would like to praise every single on of you!

The New School check in

Well we have all had to adapt to our ‘new way of learning, teaching and supporting’ our crew. Mrs Cross and Mrs Pulham have been communicating with our crew to check in and today we managed to get nearly a full team: participating in our weekly ‘Google Hangout’ woo hoo! So great to hear their voices and all seem to be embracing ‘home learning’ and have adjusted well from last week.

Next week Aaleyah will be leading the ‘crew check in’, I am sure she will have something fun in store for us all! We are all looking forward to this!

Keep safe and try your best; that is all we ask of you.


Mrs Cross and Mrs Pulham.
