Students from 7.3 pictured with a copy of the highly acclaimed Chinese novel ‘The Ventriloquist’s Daughter’. Our Year 7 class will be meeting the Taiwan author Lin Man-chiu herself, on a special Chinese enrichment day at Leeds University at the end of April. Fantastic Year 7 MEP, the book is extremely famous amongst Chinese children so enjoy the read!
Thank you to all the Year 7 pupils and parents who attended Parents’ Night. It was lovely to speak to pupils about their achievements so far and to discuss the next steps on their learning journey.
This morning, Year 7 pupils who have been completing the Numeracy Ninjas in form time received their certificates. All ‘Black Belt’ pupils and those who have made the most improvement in each form received a certificate.
There will be more certificates for those who have recently achieved ‘Black Belt’ after the holidays.
Well Done to all Year 7s for their continued effort with Numeracy Ninja work.
Year 7 pupils using their initiative to sell cakes for the Epilepsy Action ‘Purple Day’ as part of their ‘Change-makers’ project. Well Done to all Year 7 pupils who made cakes. Thank you to Esme, Claudia and Leila for giving up their time to run the stall.
Congratulations to Lucas who received the ‘Under 12s Player of the Year Award’ for hockey. He got the award for his commitment to hockey, never missing a lesson, encouraging other players even when the team are losing, helping the younger players with skills, scoring the most goals this season and for staying behind after hockey has finished to help the coaches tidy up. Well done Lucas!
Before Christmas, Year 7 designed and made Rocket Cars as part of a STEM competition for Race for the Line. The competition is inspired by the Bloodhound Project- the UK’s attempt to set a new land speed record of 1000mph later this year.
Today, as part of British Science Week, our Year 7 students raced their gun powder fuelled rocket cars on a specially laid track to find out their times. Our pupils counted down from 3 and cheered each car as they sped down the track, going proportionally as fast as the Bloodhound itself!
Lena won the award for her hard work and commitment in drama, in particular for her performance of a monologue as part of the sail challenge. Lena has developed confidence and expressed character trying to use a wide of range of acting skills. Well done and keep this up!
