This week Crew Earhart are focusing on the importance of HOWLs. In the community meeting on Friday the students were given their crew average for HOWLs. Currently crew Earhart’s average is:
Work Hard = 3.35
Get Smart = 3.35
Be Kind = 3.46
Although we appear to be achieving well in our HOWLs, there are some students who are not quite achieving the minimum expectation and need crew to help support and challenge them.
Therefore as a crew we will be analysing our own and our peers current attainment in HOWLs and making a conscious effort to help each other to improve. Students will be expected to make academic pledges to ensure they are actively working on this and encouraged to speak to teachers to gain clarity on the grade they were given.
A great first session readdressing the purpose of what it means to work hard, get smart and be kind. I am looking forward to the discussion in crew over the next few days.
X23 (Year 9) students were today given letters each explaining the injections they are due very soon. Please could parents/carers look over the letter and sign the consent form to say whether or not you would like your son/daughter to have the injections. Students know the forms are to be handed into the school office as soon as possible, preferably by the end of this week. Thank you in advance for the speedy response.
Crew Berger did a great job on their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh practice expedition. We braved the wilds of Askern, met a horse with a moustache (you have to look really closely to see it…) and survived the freezing temperatures in order to complete our practice walk and camp.
We’re looking forward to our qualifying expedition in June and would like to appreciate Mr Pearson for working with us and for taking our photo as well!
This week in Earhart’s Duke of Edinburgh session students worked together to plan their walking routes for their qualifying expedition. It was lovely to see students working together and supporting each other through this process.
This morning during Crew time, Earhart joint with Crew Rosa Parks to listen to them read. It was brilliant to see students of different ages supporting each other in getting smart.
This week for DofE volunteering Crew Earhart have teamed up with Year 7 Students to listen to and help them with their reading. It was great to see students supporting each other.
This week in appreciation for the hard work towards SLC’s, Earhart spent crew making and eating pancakes together. It was brilliant to see students helping and supporting each throughout the session. A flipping awesome time was had by all!
I do appreciate there will be weeks where Tassomai can not be done and that the most important thing for students is that they have a rest this holiday, however if Tassomai can be kept ticking over it would be highly beneficial to students.
I would be really grateful your support with this.
To both students and families, please have a wonderful summer and enjoy the deserved rest.
Just a quick reminder for parents of the key dates for C22 students in Crew Nightingale and Bronte. Students will have their final kit check in Crew time on Thursday 14th June and will be bag packing on Thursday 21st June; as a result, students will have a later finish at school of around 5pm. Finally, the Friday the 22nd and 23rd June students will be completing their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh walk. Students need to arrive at school on Friday the 22nd at 7.15am. We would ask that parents please remind students of the need to take care while out on expedition and that mobile phones are not allowed, unless the group have decided that a specific phone is to be used as the emergency contact or it is part of their aim to use them at which point we will remove the SIM card which will be kept safe for the weekend.
Please watch the website during the Saturday afternoon, the expected time back at school is between 5 and 6pm, but this may change due to traffic or any vital de-gunging that may need to take place before students leave.
