It’s fantastic to see our X24 students working so hard during our first week back. Praise butterflies this week were awarded to Isaac, Vinnie, Aaisha, Chris, Jaggy, Courtney, Kyra, Bella, Charlotte, Milla, Charlie and Harpreet. Butterflies were awarded by staff and by students for consistent hard work, being kind, showing compassion and in one case – for being epic!
Fantastic end to this half term. Congratulations to Isaac, Charlie W, Kyra, Charlotte, Milla, Jayden, Charlie P, J-D, Thomas, Roshni, Finn, Francesca, Henry, Rikki, Jaggy, Kyle, Kian and Ashley. Excellent work this week showing the XP Character Traits and HOWLs.
Learning materials for the self study unit on ‘The Nervous System’ have been posted on Google Classroom for both 8 Admiral and 8 Skipper. This work is due to be completed in STEAM books by Monday 15th.
The Year 8 Presentation of Learning will take place on Tuesday 8th May for Skipper and Wednesday 9th May for students in Admiral. The evening will be held at The Point in Doncaster at 5.30pm. We have chosen The Point as it provides students the opportunity to perform their poetry to an authentic audience and in the home of Doncaster Community Arts. Students will need to be collected from the venue not from School at 6.30pm. Students are looking forward to sharing their hard work with you.
If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact School.

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 MarchAdmiral will be going followed by Skipper on Friday16th 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.

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.
