All students have been set two short tasks to complete on Hegarty Maths in preparation for sessions next week. The deadline is for completion by Wednesday 18th April.
We have decided to postpone C23’s fieldwork to Flamborough Head that was scheduled for this Friday 16th of March. The weather forecast predicts strong winds and heavy rain and having completed a risk assessment, we have decided that it would not be wise to continue with the trip.
We will instead reschedule the visit for Skipper to Tuesday 20th March. Please see our original post on fieldwork requirements for the day.
During the first week back C23 students will be going on fieldwork to the East Yorkshire Coast to investigate the impact of nature on the land. On Wednesday the 14th March Admiral will be going followed by Skipper on Friday 16th March. Students will spend time on the beach at both locations.
We will be leaving at 8.45am and will return to school between 3.30pm and 4pm depending on the traffic. Students will be out of school all day and as a result will need a packed lunch and warm clothing – we would recommend that students have at least 3 layers- as well as a waterproof coat. Students who receive free school meals will be provided with a packed lunch.
If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

|Forename||Surname Inital||New X Block||TUESDAYS||WENDESDAYS||THURSDAYS|
As is usual during immersion into new learning expeditions, there will be no X Block in Year 7 or Year 8 in the upcoming week.
This means that Year 7 and Year 8 students will not need PE kit for Tue – Thu this week.
Year 8 students should still bring their PE kit as usual tomorrow.
All students students should still bring their PE kit as usual on Friday too.
Year 8 will be being placed into new X block groups. These will be shared later this week, as it does mean that the day on which each Year 8 student gets their X Block PE sessions may change. X block will start again in the week commencing 15th January.
I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all of our community a very happy new year.

Having stood outside in the cold today, whilst doing the project first!
Can I recommend that all students bring a warm coat for the next few days for part of the immersion activities that we have planned.
Class of 22 Team
Year 8 Skipper and Admiral have a specific earthquake or tsunami to research. This research needs to be completed by Friday 24th March so that students can begin writing their scientific article from Monday 27th March.
As students will be writing scientific articles they will need their devices each session over the forthcoming weeks.
A reminder about Thursdays fieldwork arrangements. Please see the original post below.
Could I also ask that parents and carers do not send students with anything containing peanuts as we have a student with allergies to peanuts, also if students require an inhaler they must bring one with them on the day.
As part of the expedition Disaster!, students will carry out Fieldwork at the Natural History Museum, London, on Thursday 30th March 2017. Students will be travelling by coach to London and will therefore need to arrive at school no later than 6.15 am ready for a 6.30 am departure. We will arrive back at school later that evening at around 7.00 pm, depending on traffic. All students except those on Free School Meals will need to bring a packed lunch, and may want to bring some money for the Services on the way home where there will be an opportunity to eat, or bring a double packed lunch instead.
We ask that any students who are travel sick take their medication in good time, sit at the front of the bus, and pass their return journey medication to myself or their Crew leader.
If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
All students have until Wednesday evening to complete the final draft of their short story. This will then allow students time to complete a final write up by Friday 10th February.
