It was great to catch up with Crew Earhart this afternoon for our weekly check-in. Lovely to see most faces in Crew with just three students not able to make it. Mrs Robinson and I are really pleased with how Crew Earhart are adjusting to the new ways of working and the challenges we’re all facing and it was great to see such happy and smiling faces. It certainly did us good to catch up with this lot and we hope it did for our students too.
Today, we chatted, checked in and played some games. For a little while, we did nothing, but we did nothing together! Looking forward to next week, Miss Robinson has set us all the challenge of baking something and bringing it to show in our hangout. I’ll be attempting my personal favourite; a lemon drizzle cake. Charlotte also has the great idea of us all learning to ‘shuffle’ dance too, which she is going to lead on next week!
In other news, here is Tyler. Still doing his bit for the community. Tyler, our own key worker, has not only kept up his paper round but has more than doubled his workload to make sure that people who can’t get out still get their daily news update and connection to the world. Well done, Tyler, keep it up. We’re all proud of you!
It has been lovely to hear from some of Crew Ennis Hill on our hangouts on Wednesday and Thursday this week and next week we hope for more crew to be involved (if they can get out of bed by 1:30pm ha ha).
Being in Y11, is posing sightly different concerns for students:
How do I fill in a maths paper online?
How do I manage the time properly (shared by all year groups)?
What do I need to do for the poetry paper (is this just revision-no)?
When do you think we will get to have prom?
I miss school!
Yes that’s right some members of X22 are missing being in school! As a lot of students are. However it is important to remember that X22 have not only been sent home for the lockdown, but may never return and this is a cause for sadness.
However as Always, Ennis Hill managed to smile their way through and we had a laugh as well as a serious discussion about the work they need to complete.
X22 have embarked on their Final Art GCSE exam paper and have been given 8 weeks to prepare for their 10 hour exam. This is the timetable that shows what work needs to be completed within the time period. We are on week 3 and in their sketch book they should have a mind map with their ideas and a spider diagram. By next week they should have a total of 6 drawings in different media from the work of other artists that they have researched. Could parents please check to see if they are on-track at home as they should be completing extended study every week.
As you can see they are close to completing their Art GCSE and their final exam will be after the half term.
