What a great return to XP for Crew Piper. They have all settled into routines and work showing commitment and enthusiasm.
We have made our first pledges of the year as a Crew our pledge is to listen and support each other in crew.
Here are some of the pledges from Crew Piper:
I pledge to not get distracted by others.
I pledge to get to know everyone in Crew.
I pledge to bring my equipment in everyday.
Hopefully we can stick to these pledges for the next term. I have had some fantastic feedback from staff about how well Piper have been in lessons and how settled they are. BIG WELL DONE everyone. Keep it up.
It is wonderful to welcome back our students in Year 8 and 9 today, they have certainly returned with renewed energy and enthusiasm!
Today, is all about Crew. Students have been spending their time today reflecting on the past few months, learning how to keep themselves safe whilst in school and most importantly reconnecting as a Crew.
I have had the pleasure of spending time in each of the Crew’s and it is great to see the students engaged, working collaboratively and happy!
This week I set a challenge for Crew to write their own blog post about what they have been up to and the beautiful work they have been designing. Here are some examples that Ilinca has collected over the week.
Beautiful work from Grace.
We have also been completing the PE challenges to try and get as many points as we can for sports day. COME ON CREW WE CAN DO IT.
This week we have had various conversations and check in’s to catch up with each other. PE sent a new challenge out this week and as Crew Piper are joint first it was essential that we all took part. Ben managed to get into the 90’s which really put my score to shame. Well done Oliver G for winning the Disney quiz this week. We also continued to work on our book of memories this week looking at our favourite music playlist, Jake posted some interesting choices of music. Ilinca posted a variety of different artists which was fab.
Please can I give a huge shout outs to
Joshua for his fantastic efforts this week with his work. Some beautiful work produced.
Ben for catching up with some Maths, well done.
Jake what a week of work, fantastic efforts. Great attitude to home learning.
Ilinca fantastic efforts in your HUMS and STEAM work, beautiful work.

This sparked some great discussion on current issues across the world which have happened this week. It was fab to hear the maturity in the opinions of crew piper who are only 12-13 years of age. It made me very proud to hear them and have a mature conversations about the world we live in.
Another week of hard work and great efforts from Crew Piper. Very impressed with some of the fantastic pieces of art that has been created by crew. Here are just a few.
Crew hangout today was a quiz from Tom and Miss O’Grady. Winners were Macey and Olliver but I don’t know how they got all my riddles correct. It was nice to laugh and joke with crew today during the quiz and we even had some Tik tok’s dances in there.

Learning Maths remotely, like other subjects, can be really difficult. Then when you also ask students to show their working out, it get be even harder. Below shows some of the exceptional work that is going on at home from X25. Keep up the resilience X25!
As part of Common Mission in year 7/8 we are launching The Book of Memories. Crew leaders will be sharing this during google hangouts. We would like you to produce a virtual (slides) or book of your memories during this time so that we can look back and reflect on our time at home.
Each week you will be given a theme to help you create your book of memories and give you ideas of activities you might be able to do at home. Your crew leader will share the introduction with you and how you can make your book and also the first theme which is “What is in my cupboards”
We look forward to seeing your ideas and sharing with us what you have been up to whilst at home.
