Crew Macmillan show support for World Mental Health Day!

Year 9 is a HUGE year for our students. Speaking about mental health is vital not only for this year group, but for everybody.

To show their support, Crew Macmillan  have tried to wear an item of yellow clothing to support world mental health day.

Some students have been really innovative and stuck a yellow post it note to themselves to raise awareness!

Our community meeting also focused on the benefits of good mental health and how we can help and support each other in school. Some excellent advice given this morning, brilliant to see X24!

Crew Macmillan Host A Coffee Morning!

On Friday 27th September, Crew Macmillan will be hosting a bake sale in support of the nationwide Macmillan coffee morning.

 

Our bake sale will rely on donations of baking from crew members (and crew leader – eek!) and will take place at break time.

There will be a game of ‘dunk the biscuit in the cuppa’ – similar to pin the tail on the donkey – which will be priced at £1 a turn. Sweet treats will be priced at 50p per item!

If you would like to donate to Macmillan Cancer Support, please send in some money with your son/daughter on Friday.

Thanks in advance from Crew Macmillan!

Crew Webb at your service

Crew Webb have been listening to Miss Hannam’s crew read this week as part of their voluntary Duke of Edinburgh service. The students will also undertake a skill section, a physical section and finally an expedition in order to gain their bronze award.

Crew Macmillan talk ‘Outdoors’!

On Monday, crew Macmillan focused on WHY we DofE after our regular weekend check in.

We talked about how being on DofE relates to working together in a classroom, and identified why we partake in outdoor expeditions that Mrs ap Harri leads so fantastically.

See what crew thought…

 

Some ideas included ‘to help the community, to get the award, and to show commitment’.

Fab work this week Crew Macmillan, keep working hard!

 

X24 Eyam Village fieldwork

Students from X24 will be visiting Eyam over the next two days. This visit will take place entirely within the school day (traffic dependent), therefore students require a packed lunch.

Admiral: Wednesday 4th September

Skipper: Thursday 5th September

Students will be spending some of their time walking and so will need to bring appropriate clothing and footwear, the current weather forecast suggests that we will have rain on Wednesday.

 

X24 Building Background Knowledge

This week in Humanities sessions X24 students have been exploring the context of their anchor text Of Mice and Men. As the book is set in 1930’s America we have been studying what life was like at this time and recording our new understanding using a BBK note catcher. All students worked hard to expand their knowledge during these sessions but Milla and Aaisha’s work stood out in terms of it’s Craftsmanship and Quality. Beautiful work girls!
