Crew Darling – First Week Back!

Enjoy a snippet of Crew Darling’s first week back! It has been a jam-packed week, full of activities focused on strengthening our bond as crew, and mentally preparing for the year ahead. We have worked on our communication skills, gone on beautiful fieldwork, played inter-crew games and more, all of which culminated in a POL this afternoon!

Year 9 is a rollercoaster of excitement and change, and the first week back with these unforgettable crew times sets the tone for the whole year. Looking forward to working hard with Crew this year!

X26 – Y11’s first week

Our Year 11’s spent their first day back at Langsett Reservoir. This was a great way for pupils to have a reset and talk about their summer.

The second day was focussed on giving something back to our community. Crew Kahlo conducted a litter pick in the local area

X28 – Crew Re-wilding!

Dear Parents and Carers,

Crew Darling and Crew Barnes are bonding together under the shared passion of re-wilding our school. We hope to attract more wildlife like bee’s, bunnies and more.

We hope if you have any spare flower seeds could you please donate them by Wednesday 24th of May 2023 so we can make our school bright and colourful again. X28 Crews have started studying the importance of caring for their environment in their Crew Wise Wednesday sessions. Crew worked hard last week learning about the impact Climate Change has on their environment, and ultimately how there is No Planet B!

We ask kindly that if you have any spare seeds and flowers (even flowering plants), that you drop them into reception to help us build a beautiful environment for nature around our school.

Crew Darling and Crew Barnes thanks you in advance!

Crew Kahlo starting Year 10

Crew Kahlo has made a great start to their fourth year at XP (How time flies).

Our crew week was a bit different this year which consisted of:

  • A crew day to check in with each other and set expectations for the year ahead
  • A day of team-building activities to help us communicate and work better together (which we won!)
  • A coastal walk at the lovely Flamborough to have a chance to walk and chat in the lovely fresh air
  • A crew presentation to answer the guiding question ‘How can we get everyone to the top of their mountain?’.

Crew Pasteur

We have been raising money last week for our crew charity which is for Dementia UK. Our crew charity was presented by Ellis in year 7 and the crew voted on Dementia UK. We did a bake sale last week on Tuesday morning and break time and we raised over £70 which is amazing. Thank you to who came and bought our bake goods we sold out which was brilliant.
