Overall it was a very positive week for Earhart. We have some really notable members of Crew who have been working their socks off from day 1 of the lockdown period and have made massive efforts to do everything that has been asked of them. Mills, Charlotte, Lois Scarlett and Tyler get an extra pat on the back this week as they have completed all tasks but have also reviewed great feedback from their teachers about how well they are working through all of the online tasks set for them.
In the rest of Crew, we have definitely seen a lot of great progress in getting things done. Some of us were off to a slower start with work, (we don’t mind too much, we are living in a global pandemic after all!) there has been a marked increase in the amount work being produced and in the quality of it so I can’t wait to see what this week brings. There seems to be momentum building and if we can keep this up, we’ll be in the best possible shape when we finally do return to school!
We only had 4 members of Crew join us for our last hangout which was a little more disappointing. Mrs Robinson and I would really like to see a full house in our weekly hangouts so we can continue to help and support each other as Crew, with that in mind we have decided to make our Friday afternoon Crew sessions compulsory. We really want everyone to be present and in keeping with our Work Hard HoWL; arrive on time and prepared, and participate fully and mindfully. With that in mind, we’d like everyone to be a couple of minutes early to Crew (Fridays as 2pm) with their cameras on and mics off. This way, Crew will be as purposeful as possible.
In addition to this, Miss Robinson and I will be organising one to one tutorials for students via Google Hangout in order to support home learning and progress. Parents are very welcome to attend these sessions should they want to ask any questions or just check up on what work needs completing. To help with the organisation of this, Miss Robinson and I will be splitting Crew so we can give each students full attention (by splitting we mean just for tutorials etc, we’re still all Crew Earhart and will continue as normal!) We’ll be contacting students this week to organise a time to hangout:
Miss Robinson: Charlotte, Scarlett, Bradley, Alex, Bobby-Jack, Liam.
Mr Voltaire: Logan, Lois, Mills, Leighton, Tyler.
Keep up the hard work this week you lot and we’ll see you very soon!
We are Crew.
Footnote: Check out the baking from Mills this week for her own afternoon tea. She has kindly offered to bake me and Miss Robinson cake and fondant fancies every week until she leaves school and serve them with a brew! 🤪
