School starts on Tuesday 27th August where we will be embarking on a week of crew.
Throughout the week students require to be at school at normal time (8:30) but finish times will be slightly different depending on the schedule for the day. Students will require a pen, pencil and ruler this week and a kit list has been sent out for Wednesday and Thursday.
The week’s schedule is as follows:
Tuesday- In school with a normal finish time of 3:15. There is no extended study in school this week.
Wednesday – Out of school on crew activities so students will need a backpack with a packed lunch, a bottle of water, hiking boots and waterproofs. Please can students come to school in trainers not their walking boots. We are expected to be back at school for around 5pm.
Thursday- Out of school on crew activities so students will need a backpack with a packed lunch, a bottle of water, hiking boots and waterproofs. Please can students come to school in trainers with their walking boots in their bag. We are expected to be back at school for around 5pm.
Friday- Students are in school all day. Their week will be completed with a Presentation of Learning commencing at 2:15 which parents are invited to come and support their students where they will be answering their Guiding Question.
In X25’s next community meeting we will be presenting our answer to the guiding question ‘What is crew?’ Today Stan Lee have started discussing and led a crew meeting to unpick what crew is. They discussed different ways that they could build on this GQ and how they want to present it during the next community meeting. We are constantly working on our communication skills and being able to listen to one another with respect. This morning was a perfect example of Stan Lee meeting these learning targets. Well done Crew!
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!
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!
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!
Why the human knot? The human knot game is used as a team building activity. Our focus was to work together as a crew and be able to communicate to one another in close proximity.
