It has been great getting back in crew. I got to spend the first 2 full days with them for their immersion. This was so much fun but had a really important message about being the best version of yourself and that we need to work hard to achieve our dreams.
Students seem to have settled back into school really well, especially in crew. I’m delighted with the way crew are engaging in the topics we talk about and although we started a bit wobbly with not speaking in turn, everyone has quickly got back to using our norms such as not speaking over people and being on time.
We’ve had a slight facelift when it comes to delivering crew across the 2 schools which i think will make our sessions even better. This week we have focused on accelerated reading which allows us to identify students reading age. Being able to read is so important and has a direct impact on their exams. Every Tuesday during crew we will be reading, either individually or as a group looking at texts that will come up in their GCSE’s.
Many of crew Hahn have received post card praises from teachers and learning coaches for their hard work and general attitude since we returned, WELL DONE GUYS!
We are also having a big push in coming to school everyday prepared. This is part of getting smart. If we are not prepared and dont have the appropriate equipment then we can’t work to the best of our ability. Please can you support your child in making sure they come to school everyday with a pen, pencil, ruler, charged device, reading book, water bottle and school bag.
I’d like to thank everyone in crew for adhering to the guidelines for social distancing and following our school procedures. We check each morning that all of crew have washed their hands and don’t have any of the symptoms. As a reminder please dont send your son or daughter (and siblings) to school if they have any of the symptoms. If you are unsure and need further advice please speak with the office staff or check the web posts.
On a Friday afternoon i also get chance to spend More time this year with my crew doing leisure activities. It’s so important for students to do some physical activity, especially during what could be a stressful year for them. Last week we played badminton which was great fun beating them all and I’m looking forward to doing it again this week.
