This afternoon, my year 10 Transition Challenge group have been talking about different household jobs that they help with at home. We then tried our hand at ironing. Most students were a little nervous at first, as they were worried about burning themselves. However, they all watched a demonstration carefully, and followed instructions perfectly. Well done, year 10 – you all did a fantastic job! 👏👏👏
We currently have a number of staff and pupils who have tested positive for Covid 19. We are trying to keep everyone safe by having class or year group ‘bubbles’, opening windows, not sharing equipment, doing at least twice weekly lateral flow tests, speaking regularly to Public Health and having an enhanced cleaning regime.
We are also asking everyone to wear face coverings around school, inline with the newly amended advice from the government and to regularly wash and sanitise their hands. Could you please help us by encouraging your child to follow these rules.
Please contact us if you have any queries. Thank you for your support
On Tuesday, 7W were learning about Judaism. We looked into Shabbat including how/why it is celebrated. To do this, we then made a loaf of challah which is traditionally eaten each Shabbat with a meal. 7W were able to listen carefully to instructions to make the bread on their own. We then enjoyed this as a class with some butter on! Great work 7W, it was delicious!
Some pupils in 10D have been working hard learning their number bonds to 10 and 20. They used part-whole models to work out pairs of numbers that add up to 10 or 20. Next we will work on rapid recall if these number pairs.
After learning about Anti-bullying in our Rights Respecting Schools lessons, students and staff decided to help raise awareness within school by wearing odd socks for the national anti-bullying week. This leads into the work that our Student Council are currently involved in, which is reviewing and developing how the school supports such an important subject as anti-bullying. Well done to all who joined in to help raise awareness this week!
The Bronze, Silver and Gold Duke of Edinburgh groups have continued in their efforts to keep our beaches litter free. They have shown an excellent attitude towards our weekly beach cleaning sessions and are well on their way to achieving the volunteering section of their award. Well done and thank you!
