Crew Tomlinson on Time

Over the last few weeks crew have recently worked really hard on making sure they are at school on time in a morning. We have understood the importance of making sure we are on time and the impacts it can have if not on time. A particular well done to Danny and Mollie whose punctuality has massively improved.

Crew have also looked recently looked through praises over the last few weeks with some members of crew having a fantastic number of praises from sessions some examples of praise is for students reading a part in Macbeth, producing beautiful work in Art and fantastic effort in Spanish.

It’s great to see the hard work of crew! Keep it up everyone.

Crew Stan Lee Pledges

This morning, Crew Stan Lee have been doing some excellent work on their Crew pledges.

Crew pledges are a promise you make to perform an action such as getting to Crew on time or pledging to help other students. The rest of Crew hold these pledges to account and challenge Crewmates who do not follow the pledges they make and ensure they follow them to the best of their ability. Students who follow their pledges are often noticed and praised by their peers as well as their Crew Leader.

This crew blog has been written by James one of our crew members.
Well done James.

X25 DofE Fridays-Skill

We hope everyone has had a great half term and ready for the next term. As part of the students Duke of Edinburgh silver award they will be completing an hour towards their skill award on Friday afternoons. At the end of last term students chose which skill they wanted to complete. Students have chosen between sewing, beauty and board games.

We have a couple of board games in school but would be great if you have any at home that we can borrow for students to make the most of this time.

 

We are really looking forward to the students completing their DofE.

 

Thanks

X25 crew leaders.

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.

Physical Friday, X25 Duke of Edinburgh Award

X25 took part in a selection of sports activities on Friday afternoon which will contribute towards their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award scheme. Students had to pick from futsal, rounders or a 5km walk/run. The weather stayed nice and dry with even a bit of sunshine coming through the clouds.

All the students were amazing and everyone took part in something. It was great to see on a Friday afternoon.

 

Believe in yourself Crew!

Crew have had a busy few weeks since returning to school and they have all made a fabulous start to the new term, which they kick started with a meditative mindful session.

It gave them all time to press reset and recharge so they could hit the ground running upon their return. It was a great chance to sit back and let them hear all the positive thoughts and feelings that they each have about their Crew. They are all so proud and supportive of each other. It also gave the opportunity for them to close their eyes and relax before the busy week ahead.

If you look closely you can see that some have their eyes tightly closed and are totally getting ‘into the zone’. Unfortunately the session was not long enough so round two will take place this week.

 

Crew Stan Lee are back with a bang!!

Crew Stan Lee are back after an eggcellent …… Easter break!

This week crew have chosen their physical activity for the Duke Of Edinburgh Award.

Choices ranged from Rounders, Futsal or a 5k run/walk. Crew were super excited and really looking forward to Friday afternoons.

We have completed a self assessment task looking at HOWL grades and reflected on each others self assessments, this will be a great tool moving forward, helping us all up the XP mountain and giving us the tools reach our full potential by working hard, getting smart and being kind.

Over the next few weeks we be looking at our choice GCSE and careers going forward, as a crew we are on an exciting journey and I can’t wait to see to what the future holds!

A rest from our screens….

Crew Stan Lee have been completing various activities to promote enjoying a screen free session.

We’ve learnt new skills from cooking, baking, mastering football skills and even learning a new language.

I even learnt a new skill of maintaining my car by refilling the screen wash and topping up the air in my tyres.

We completed random acts of kindness by helping our families with chores and making lunch for our siblings.

Yesterday was all about relaxation and boy did they relax… crew read, listened to music and even went for a run.

Our screen free activity today is Den building or writing a creative comic strip or story board. I cannot wait to see what crew come up with as they are a creative bunch.

Here is a collection of images to showcase what we have been up to.

Proud As Punch!

Congratulations to Crew Stan Lee for all completing their Passage Presentation!

All smiles as passage was over!!

To say that Passage Presentation has been tough this year is a slight understatement, due to students completing it virtually.

Crew Stan Lee have all worked extremely hard and produced some fantastic presentations, all students presented their work to their parents, crew leader and a mystery guest.

I was brought to tears by the passion shown by our crew and the dedication to their own learning.

I feel confident that crew members are ready to move on to the next phase on their journey through XP.

Thank you for all your continued support.

Mrs Pulham.
