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 Tomlinson Bike-a-thon

Crew Tomlinson are really excited to be completing their first charity fundraiser next Monday. We have set ourselves a massive challenge of trying to bike coast to coast in a day (on an exercise bike!) We particularly wanted to complete a physical activity due to our crew taken our name from Jane Tomlinson. We are wanting to raise money for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice to help them carry on helping so many families. The just giving page is linked below if anyone can sponsor anything it would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks so much for the people who have already donated. We will update you with how we do!

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.

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 Tomlinson – See you in year 10!

It has been another busy couple of weeks for Crew Tomlinson. Crew are working really hard on their Passage presentations, which I can’t wait for them to present to show their hard work to parents, staff and guest panellists.

Today’s check in question for crew was ‘If you could time travel where would you go?’. We had some brilliant responses with some crew wanting to transport forward a few years to when things are back to a bit more normality and able to enjoy football etc again while others wanted to go back in time. They wanted to rewind for a variety of reasons including because they have heard what a brilliant time period the 80s and 90s was and want to see what it was like and somebody wanting to experience the Victorian Era.

Today is my last day with crew this year, as I am on Maternity leave until September and I wanted to say how proud I am of crew. They are working so hard in these difficult times. Their attendance on hangouts is fantastic and crew are contributing some fantastic points to discussions, particularly in Wise Wednesday sessions. So thanks crew for all your hard work!

I will really miss crew for the remainder of the year and can’t wait to be back to continue their XP journey with crew and see what year 10 brings for them. Time really does fly!

Thanks for all your hard work crew! Please keep it up for the rest of the year and I will see you in September.

Crew Tomlinson – New year, Great start!

Last week Crew made a fantastic start to 2021. It was always going to be different with working from home however crew have started the year absolutely flying. Crew have had fantastic attendance and made brilliant contributions on hangouts.

Last week we had a check in looking at any new years resolutions people had, which included more exercise, eating healthier and becoming more organised.

Fran also shared a lovely picture of her cute dog who joined her family over the Christmas period, who I think it gorgeous!

 

Crew are also working hard on their passage preparation- reflecting over the last 2 1/2 years they have studied at XP. Crew are working really hard, particularly well done to Fran and Nada who have made some great progress on their script over the last week. Remember crew the hard work will pay off.

 

Looking forward to seeing what great work you produce this week and again a massive Well done with all your efforts in this challenging time.

Mrs Burnitt
