End of Term Sunshine!

This week in crew we have been working really hard on unpicking our HOWLs and reflecting on why we think we received the grades and what we can do to improve next term. So Friday afternoon we decided to make the most of the sunshine with a few outdoor games. Great work this term…enjoy the holidays!!

Reflecting on HOWLS

This morning in Crew Piper all students were given their HOWLS for Maths, Science, PE, HUMS and Crew. We then spent the crew sessions reflecting on how we felt about the grades we had been given and how we can improve on these moving forward into a new term. We will continue to work on these over the next few weeks and help each student to make good on any pledges they make.

Crew Stan Lee

Every Monday morning we do crew check in and talk about our weekend. Afterwards we do academic crew. This morning we have had Millie, Aaleyah and Beth studying mathematics, looking at ‘range, medium and mode’. Alfie and Jacob doing ‘frog, play, net’, which is another tool to help them progress in mathematics.  James and Jessica worked on timetable rockstars. Luke and Frankie was helping Joseph plan his crew activity for Wednesday. Great work this morning Stan Lee!


Crew Stan Lee

What a great crew session led by Frankie, still continuing with our crew goals:

  • To be able to work as a team.
  • To be able to listen and communicate clearly and respectfully to one another.

Frankie circled Stan Lee up and explained the rules of the game and did so with passion and leadership. Well done Frankie and Crew Stan Lee for a great morning and start of the school day!

Tour de Yorkshire

Crew Tomlinson are really proud of Max who yesterday led the procession of the Men’s race of Tour de Yorkshire. What a fantastic achievement and experience to have. Max represented himself brilliantly….Well Done Max!!

Crew Stan Lee – Crew led activity

Each week in Stan Lee we have a crew member take over crew and lead an activity based around communication and team building. This is the area that we felt as a crew we needed to further develop.

Today it was Millie who led the session and she was awesome! We had a great morning problem solving, listening to one another and most importantly working together as crew. Looking forward to next week!

Crew Pledges

Last week in Crew Tomlinson we created our academic and HOWLs pledges ready for the rest of the year. We had time to think about these independently and then critique each others pledges to make sure they were specific and something the individual needed to work towards. We will be looking at these on a weekly basis to check our progress and support each other to achieve success.
