Y8 Fieldwork Natural History Museum, London

A reminder about Thursdays fieldwork arrangements. Please see the original post below.

Could I also ask that parents and carers do not send students with anything containing peanuts as we have a student with allergies to peanuts, also if students require an inhaler they must bring one with them on the day.

As part of the expedition Disaster!, students will carry out Fieldwork at the Natural History Museum, London, on Thursday 30th March 2017. Students will be travelling by coach to London and will therefore need to arrive at school no later than 6.15 am ready for a 6.30 am departure. We will arrive back at school later that evening at around 7.00 pm, depending on traffic. All students except those on Free School Meals will need to bring a packed lunch, and may want to bring some money for the Services on the way home where there will be an opportunity to eat, or bring a double packed lunch instead.

We ask that any students who are travel sick take their medication in good time, sit at the front of the bus, and pass their return journey medication to myself or their Crew leader.

If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

DofE practice expedition information:

This week students will be bringing home a Residential Visit Consent & Medical form to be completed and returned to school by 17th April. Also they will be bringing home an information letter and a kit list  for the expedition weekend. I will put a copy of these on the DofE page on the school web site too.

Big Talk Education

On May 3rd Big Talk Education are coming into school to speak to Year 7, 8 & 9 separately about Sex Relationships Education.

There will be a parents meeting on 2nd May at 5.30pm where Lynette from Big Talk Education will explain what areas are going to be covered in the talks and there will be an opportunity for you to ask any questions.  We ask that all parents attend this meeting.

Thank you.

Autism course

An opportunity has arisen that a course on Autism can be ran by John Broom from the ASSETS team at XP.

The course will introduce Autism Spectrum and look at managing behaviour, sleep, peer relationships and transition.

The course will run for a couple of hours one morning/afternoon over the course of a number of weeks.

The course is open to parents of XP students who have a child with autism, are on the pathway or want further information.

This course can only take place if there are number of people are interested.

If you are interested can you please email by Monday 3rd April and further information will be sent out once numbers have been established.

Y9 Expert Visit

On Friday, in year 9, we hosted an expert from Doncaster museum talking to us about crime and punishment in the medieval period, linking to our current humanities expedition ‘I fought the law and the law won!’ Year 9 had the opportunity to handle and observe artefacts, alongside dressing-up in medieval clothing!

Here’s just a few pictures…

Article Research Y8 Skipper and Admiral

Year 8 Skipper and Admiral have a specific earthquake or tsunami to research. This research needs to be completed by Friday 24th March so that students can begin writing their scientific article from Monday 27th March.

As students will be writing scientific articles they will need their devices each session over the forthcoming weeks.
