X25 shaking it off!

X25 Crews have been working really hard. We have started to revise An Inspector Calls on Tranquil Tuesday recapping what we know about the characters and key facts about the play. We are also reading the play in crew. Yesterday crews also started to look for where they can complete their work experience, thinking about where they want to go and then crafting emails to contact them.

Due to their hard work in crew last Thursday we decided to wake everyone up with an exercise class. Members of X25 joined in with Just Dance- which was fantastic!

It was a great way to start the day….Keep up the good work!!

X25 Working Hard and Getting Smart

X25 have made a fantastic start to the academic year. They have started to read A Christmas Carol in English making some brilliant notes about the start of the book and analysing the description of Scrooge. In Science they have been completing an experiment to observe a cell using a microscope, creating some great diagrams of what cells look like.

Students have done really well at bringing their equipment to sessions which is imperative to make sure they are competing the work to the best of their ability.

Keep up the good work X25!

C25: Coastal Walk on 30th August 2022

As ever, we will be kicking off our first week back at school by regrouping and rebooting Crew.

On the very first day back – Tuesday 30th August – our C25 (new Y11) students will be going on a coastal walk to Flamborough.

Students should arrive at school between 8am-8.15am so that we can leave at 8.30am.  We are aiming to be back at school by 3.30pm, but will keep you updated on the day.

All students will be expected to bring the Outdoor Kit listed below:

  • Appropriate rucksack for walking.
  • Packed lunch (those on FSM will be provided with a school pack lunch.)
  • Water bottle: approx 2 litres (no energy drinks, milkshakes or fizzy pop)
  • Waterproof jacket
  • Appropriate walking trousers/shorts/leggings for the weather.
  • 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 (sturdy trainers, walking shoes or walking boots are compulsory – no open toe sandals, canvas shoes or sliders)
  • Sun hat/Sun cream
  • Medication

For further information or questions please email your child’s crew leader.

Thanks!

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.

 

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.
