Crew Webb Get on Top of Revision

Crew Webb are creating revision timetables to get a head start on their mocks, which will take place later this term. They mapped out all their exams, how much time to devote to each, and how to fit their revision in between school and extracurricular activities. This will help them manage their time and keep stress to a minimum.

The Year 11 class timetable shows just how many subjects students need to prepare!

It’s fantastic that Crew Webb are working hard and taking responsibility for their upcoming mocks. Mrs. Batty and I are so impressed with their commitment to their learning. Fab work Crew Webb!

X24 History, getting started with revision!

Students this week have been given their own copy of the revision guide for our History exam board OCR B SHP History. All students should have named their copy so that if they are misplaced they can be returned. Students are encouraged to annotate and highlight the guide as they carry out their revision.

The revision guide has a number of different topics, however, students will need to focus on the following sections for revision:

  • The Elizabethans 
  • The People’s Heath 
  • Living under Nazi Rule 

The locations of these topics can be found in the contents page. We would recommend in general students start by revising The People’s Health as well as focusing on page 88 in order to prepare for the upcoming assessment in lessons. 

If any student has been absent when these revision guides were handed out, they can see myself or Mrs Hannam directly and we will make sure they get their copy.

 

A further revision guide focusing on the Viking Expansion will be issued to students in the coming weeks.

It is really great to be back in school and watching all the students engaged in their new expedition with the guiding question “What’s love got to do with it”.  The above timetable is what subject lessons the students in Year 11 have for their week at school.

It has been a refreshing start for the Year with a wonderful coastal walk along the Yorkshire Flamborough Coastline.  The start point was South Landing and the finish point was North Landing. We all stopped for a Lighthouse lunch overlooking the North sea.  It was funny to watch some of the boys protecting their lunch from the seagulls as they hovered above their heads.

Crew Macmillan are back with a bang!


Welcome back, Crew Mac!!

…And what a 3 days it’s been!

On Wednesday we returned to school after what seems an eternity! All members of Crew have grown about 3 feet taller, and have somehow become real young adults! We kicked off our return to school with a check in about our holidays, and what we had all been up to. It was a lovely morning catching up and just being crew!

Wednesday afternoon saw Crew Macmillan become champions – that’s right, we SMASHED the competition in a rounders tournament – with our final game ending 12-12 against Crew King!!!! What an afternoon, with tonnes of cheering and support (and a sore throat for me from all the screaming to ‘RUN! GOOOOO! and CAAAAATCH!!!’), and it just helped us prove that Crew Macmillan are the best! 😉

 

On Thursday, crew really impressed me! We had fieldwork planned to Flamborough Head for a coastal hike as crew. Unfortunately, 2 minutes into the bus journey, the coach broke down! Luckily, we were still on Middle Bank, and so we headed back to school for a crew day at XP. Here, the day focused on us having honest conversations about Y11, and looking at road map for success. Some brilliant conversations took place – from obstacles that could get in the way of success in Y11, to revision techniques, to stress management techniques and how to avoid procrastination. Crew Mac’s winning streak continued here – Imogen, Isaac & Alfie produced a winning road map – check it out below. It’ll give you a taste of what’s to come in Y11 – revising battle tactics, fighting off the mock exam Armada, and battling the current in the river of revision! Incredible work, guys – well done!

 

 

On Friday, we finally got out on our fieldwork to Flamborough. We walked from South Landing to North Landing, as a crew. Courtney and Alfie took some incredible photos, too – and we even saw some seals! Crew really were ace on Friday, with determination and enthusiasm on the walk – we really enjoyed the day!

 

 

Next week we’ll be into academic sessions, and I’m super excited to see what you all achieve in Y11. I just know the focus, courage, compassion and respect will mean we get everyone to the top of their mountain, together.

We are Crew Mac!!

Crew Webb Walk Flamborough!

After a rocky start on Thursday (when the coach broke down!), Crew Webb did their walk at Flamborough on Friday 3rd September. Our crew walked from South Landing to North Landing, with a stop at the lighthouse for lunch. The total distance was about 7.7 kilometres, and took about two hours to complete.

The weather was cloudy and dry, but the grey skies didn’t make the views any less spectacular. Students saw rock formations, sea birds, and seals!

This was a brilliant opportunity to reconnect as Crew, and students and staff had a great day. Great work Crew Webb!

Students today and tomorrow who hold prescribed medication at school will be handed back their medication.  Students who require medication to be taken at school in the new term 2021/22 will be required to fill in the medication form.

The Google form is required to be filled in and then press send.  This then gives staff consent to administer medication and for it to be kept on school premises.

Please ensure Inhalers, Epi-pens and other prescribed medications are sent into school with the child’s name and expiry date clearly visible.

Students in Year 11 (C24) will be going on a coastal walk to Flamborough on Thursday 2nd September 2021.
All students will be expected to bring the Outdoor Kit listed below;

Appropriate rucksack for walking
Packed lunch
Water bottle – Approx 2 litres.
Waterproof Outer Jacket
Appropriate walking trousers/shorts/leggings.
Walking top/base layer – Made from synthetic, man made material (polyester, nylon etc). This type of material removes sweat away from your skin keeping you cool in hot weather and warm in cold weather.
Appropriate outdoor shoes (trainers, walking shoes or walking boots are compulsory)
Sun hat
Sun cream
Medication – (As required to individual needs).
For further information or questions please email [email protected] or your child’s crew leader.

We are super excited to be taking C24 out on fieldwork on Thursday, 1st July.

We have arranged to take the whole of Y10 to Shrewsbury Prison, to support our final expedition of the year: Karma Police – have we got justice right?

Shrewsbury Prison was decommissioned in 2013 and now provides an “interactive prison experience” for visitors. It was also recently used as the location for BBC’s drama ‘Time’, which gave a harrowing picture of prison life.

We’re not giving too much away about the activities we’ve got planned for students, but we promise not to leave any of them locked in the cells 😉

We are booked in at the prison at 9.30am meaning that we do have to set off between 6.45am-7am at the latest.  If this is a problem for anyone, please let your Crew Leader know as soon as possible.

We will be leaving the prison at approx 1pm, so hope to be back at school between 3.30-4pm, traffic dependant. We will update socials on the day.

Please make sure students wear comfortable clothes and take a jacket as it can become cold in the prison and sensible shoes. Students will also need a packed lunch and sufficient water for the day. Please don’t pack any products containing nuts in packed lunches as we are a nut-free school!  If your child is in receipt of free school meals, a packed lunch will be provided for them.
