Crew Macmillan have had another cracking week this week! I am constantly blown away by how hard they work, how smart they get, and how kind they are.
Our Mindful Mondays this week focused around our weekends. We spent our crew session catching up, speaking about positives and negatives to our weekend. Most of Archie’s weekends now are taken up by his new puppy, Ralph – and Milo can’t go football training at the minute now we’re back in lockdown! What a funny old year!
Tranquil Tuesdays in Crew Mac saw students get to grips with our new E-Library. We explored the selection of books available, and we’re impressed with the new system! Hopefully this will allow us to expand our vocabulary, and our love of reading – some of crew struggle with this, but it’s something we are working on, together! I can’t wait to settle down to a good book from the library now!!!
In crew on Wednesday, we had the pleasure of Tristan and Loris joining us from Crew Webb! Our Wise Wednesday session focused on paying our respects to mark Remembrance Day. We spoke about the sacrifices made by the heroes of our country in the wars, and we also spoke about the sacrifices our key workers have made during this pandemic. We marked Remembrance Day by creating poppies with messages of remembrance on the back, and sorted these out to make our Crew door reflect the thanks we have for the servicemen and women who gave their lives for our freedom.
Our Thoughful Thursday Y10 community meeting was a great one facilitated by Mr V. We spoke about the characteristics we need to embed to be successful, and the ones that stood out were grit, determination, and being persistent! There are examples of Crew Mac doing this every day, and I’m absolutely sure that if we continue to work as a crew, this grit will definitely pay off in terms of GCSE results next year.
This morning we began to analyse our HoWLs for this term; I’m going to keep this short as it’s a work in progress, and there will be more to come on this next week… but for now, just check out how impressive this snapshot of Crew Mac’s HoWLs is!!!
Finally, I’d like to say a big thank you to Crew Macmillan this week. I didn’t have the best time on Tuesday and Wednesday and compassion and respect was shown in abundance. It’s unbelievable how lucky I am to be in the position of Crew Leader for such fantastic, kind hearted human beings. I’ll leave you with this gorgeous piece of artwork Courtney has created for our crew wall – she’s absolutely right, we really are crew!
