Lord Blunkett Visit

Last week we were honoured to have hosted an ambassador tour for Lord David Blunkett at XP Doncaster Schools. What an absolute honour to welcome the former Education Secretary to speak to our students and hear about our beautiful work within our community.

It was great to see Olly Newton from The Edge Foundation and Barley the dog too!

Beautiful work in X29 Art

Students in year 7 have begun their journey in Art by looking at tone, and how to create three dimensional images using shadows and highlights. Studying basic shapes helped our students to be able to move on to more complex images based on mining and which link to their expedition “From the Ground Up”

Football round-up

C25 had a fixture in the national cup against Woodfields Academy. It was a close game, which could have gone either way. After going in at the break 1-0 down, the boys reacted well at the restart, putting the pressure on with a string of good opportunities. Pushing players forward, XP were caught on the break and found themselves 2-0 down. A late consolation was all that XP could manage with the final result 2-1. Well done to both sets of players. XP will now set their focus on their league and look to better last years position.

Crew Pasteur

We have been raising money last week for our crew charity which is for Dementia UK. Our crew charity was presented by Ellis in year 7 and the crew voted on Dementia UK. We did a bake sale last week on Tuesday morning and break time and we raised over £70 which is amazing. Thank you to who came and bought our bake goods we sold out which was brilliant.

C29 Fieldwork to Bletchley Park

On the 13th September, our C29 students travelled to Bletchley Park, home to the Bletchley Park code breakers. Bletchley housed more than 9000 people in secrecy, not only from the world but from their friends and family, in the battle to break the enigma code.

Students had the chance to see and learn how the enigma machine worked and therefore why it was vital in the success of the Allied forces during WW2. This fieldwork showed the importance of Science and Maths within one aspect of life, there are many others still to see. Students enjoyed the ability to grapple with different types of ciphers and codes, working together as they eagerly struggled to determine the name hidden within the entire set of clues.

Students and Staff learnt a lot from the day. Thank you C29

X27 HUMS

We have started to read our anchor text ’Lord of the Flies’ in our HUMAN sessions. All the classes have been very interested in the use of the conch shell and how the boys in the story established leadership. As students have been so engaged in this text the work that has been produced so far is excellent. Below are a few examples of some excellent quality and craftsmanship, although we could have probably photographed every book in the class!

X28 HUMS

Incredible engagement and quality and craftsmanship shown again in HUMS this week.

We have spent several HUMS sessions this week analysing the poem ’Where Are The Good People?’. Everyone produced some superb annotations and thought carefully about the overall message of the poem and why different language devices were used.

Well done everyone, keep this up!
