Crew Piper Traditional Sports Day

This morning in Crew it was the turn of Ben and Jake to lead crew. They came up with the idea to do a traditional sports day. The events including Egg and Spoon, 3 Legged Race and the Sack Race. This meant we all had to use our communication skills and work together in pairs where needed, to win the gold medal. It definitely brought out the competitive side in Crew Piper, especially Oliver G who won 3 medals. A brilliant time was had by all of us.

Crew Piper Student Led Crew

Every week between now and the end of the school year two members of Crew Piper are taking it in turns to plan and lead a crew session. The session can be on anything but must be either educational, challenging or aimed at team building and needs to have a goal as to what the students would like to have achieved at the end.
On the last Friday of the term it was Olliver’s and Ilinca’s turn. They delivered a fantastic crew session on Autism Awareness. Their aim was to help us all understand about Autism, how it can effect an individual and how best we can help and support them. They made excellent use of google slides and had activities for crew to join in with. At the end of the session we all made a pledge to support those with Autism by signing on our names on a tree to be displayed in crew room.

Well done to both Olliver and Ilinca.

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.

Stand Up To Cancer Bake Sale

Over the last week Crew Piper and Crew Rosa Parks have been holdings Bake Sales during the school day to raise funds for Stand Up To Cancer. We had an amazing response from crew members and their families for all the cakes that were sent in. Students dug deep into their pockets over the 3 days of the sale and we are so pleased to announce that the final total raised was £257.75. A massive thank you to all the students and their families for making this possible.

Activity Crew

This morning during Crew time, Crew Piper and Crew Rosa Parks had access to the sports hall. We were expertly led by Elijah for basketball drills and then the crews were split into teams and played 3 games. All students showed respect for Elijah by listening and following his instructions brilliantly. Well done to all students but especially Elijah for his expert coaching.

Crew Quiz Time

During this afternoons crew, we all took part in Crew Piper Kahoot Quiz . Each team took it in turns to share the quiz they had designed on Kahoot in Academic Crew earlier in the week. All the teams asked some brilliant questions covering all subjects. The winning team were Ilinca, Olliver.L and Joshua. Well done to them.


Academic Crew

This morning in Academic Crew, Crew Piper have been creating quizzes on Kahoot for their fellow students to complete. All the questions set relate to their expedition and could be from either their Stem or Hums lessons. We are then going to complete each quiz in crew over the next week or so. Well done to everyone. You all grappled really hard with this challenge.
