A reminder that the X25 (Year 7) celebration of learning is this Wednesday evening, 19th December from 5.30pm until around 7.00pm.
It is important that every student has someone from their family at this event as it helps to provide an authentic audience for their work in what will be a great celebration of their efforts in their very first learning expeditions at XP.
Students are asked to dress smartly as this is a formal occasion. Students can bring a change of clothes or can choose to attend in smart clothes for the whole day.
Student must stay in school between 3.15pm and the start of the celebration of learning. They will be given some time to relax after school and before the last rehearsals, so they can bring a pack up tea if they choose.
With there being no fixtures now until after half term there will be no Rugby or Football training on Monday 15th Oct and Thursday 18th Oct respectively.
Rugby training will resume on the first Tuesday back after half term before a game versus Hall Cross on Wednesday 8th Nov for year 7 and 8 – more details to follow.
Football training will be shelved for boys until after Christmas as the league fixtures are now delayed until it is light enough again to play them after school. Basketball club will begin on Mondays after school in its place.
I will post full after school club info for next half term later this week.
There has been a change in the arrangements for Wednesday’s football fixture. Conisbrough are unable to field a Y7 team so we will only be taking a Y8 team. Y7 should attend training on Thursday as usual.

Once we are there we don’t have any allocated kick-off times but we will be playing any time from then… hope this helps. I will ask students to keep you updated on approximate return time.
Thank you to the students for an outstanding turn-out once again for football training.

This term we are looking at the efficiency of energy transfers as part of our expedition “Where is away?”. An important part of this is being able to work out and interpret efficiency when expressed as a percentage.
All Year 7 students have been set 3 MyMaths exercises as a baseline to test their knowledge of working out percentages of amounts.
