Reminder to parents and students: The Chefistry revision homework that was set for completion over half term is due to be completed on Monday 2nd March. The MyMaths and I am Learning homework has been set to help students to prepare for their test. Students should refer to Google Classroom for extra help and guidance and see Mr Said and Mr Voltaire’s blog. Students are reminded to mark work as ‘done’ n Google Classroom to avoid being marked as late.
Many thanks

Expedition 4 Immersion

To kick off our next learning expedition, all students will be going out on field work on both Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd March.

We will be visiting potentially muddy and wet areas, so would like to stress that trainers and shoes will not be appropriate for the fieldwork activity. Both Admiral and Skipper will be doing fieldwork each day and must bring the following:

  • Wellington Boots
  • Waterproof Coat
  • Warm Clothing

The timetable for the day will be as normal and school dinners will be served at the usual time.

We look forward to seeing everybody next week for our next expedition!


Chefistry Time Slot Allocations

Each student has up to two guest spaces. If you have younger children that need to come along and are not guest we will have staff in our classrooms and they can use our ICT facilities whilst they wait.

The event is taking place in the Directors’ Suite (on the same corridor as the restaurant) on the second floor of the East Stand. If you arrive early, or need to leave siblings, please come to the main entrance of the school.

Just a reminder that this is a formal occasion so in line with our dress code, students should be dressed smartly on Friday. Those students in the 3.30pm slot will not be able to do the Doncaster Rovers session. Training after school is cancelled for this week.

Friends of XP – Mother’s Day Tombola

On the 13th March 2015 FXP will be running a Mother’s Day Tombola.

For a small cost, all students will be guaranteed a gift that they can give to their Mum, Gran or Carer on Mother’s Day.

We would be grateful if each Parent/Carer could contribute an inexpensive gift suitable for a female and send to school on or before the 6th March 2015.

Also if you have any unwanted gifts that FXP could use for their next raffle these can be sent into school at any time and given to Miss Blair.

Thank you for your help in raising funds for XP students.

Amazing Grace

Grace Sellers and I made an appearance on BBC radio Sheffield, this morning to talk about To Kill a Mockingbird and our recent visit to the Lyceum theatre to watch the play.
Grace spoke with amazing clarity about the prejudice in Maycomb county and how Doncaster played a part in the slave trade.
Grace did an amazing job, well done.
