Thank you, Mrs Cross

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.

Rugby Fixture tonight

For those parents wanting to attend the Rugby fixture tonight the address is Sheffield Tigers RUFC S17 3AB. We will be setting off asap after school ends and so hope to get there just after 4 – traffic permitting. 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.

C22 Preparation for Y10

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.

Mr Campbell

C22 POL An Inspector Calls

Just as a reminder that the C22 POL will be on Wednesday 4th July for Skipper and Thursday 5th July for Admiral, commencing at 6pm in XP East.

Before the performance, students will be expected to stay for a full dress rehearsal from 3.30pm. Please ensure students are provided with a packed lunch with this in mind, as students will not have time to leave school.

Also, each student needs to be dressed in full black clothing for the performance.

We would really appreciate if you could continue to help your son/daughter learn their lines as the performance draws nearer.

Thanks for your continued support. Looking forward to seeing you there!

C22 POL

I’m delighted to announce that the C22 POL performance of An Inspector Calls will be on Wednesday the 4th July for SKIPPER and Thursday the 5th July for ADMIRAL, from 6pm.

We’d really appreciate if you could help your child to learn his/her lines from their scripts in the meantime. The sooner students learn these the better the performances will be!

Thanks, as always, for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you all there!

C21/C22 Parents: Tassomai

Students in Years C21 and C22 have the ongoing compulsory extended study of 10 minutes of daily quizzing on the Tassomai science learning programme. This system works to develop students retention and recall of key science facts and concepts by daily quizzing and interleaved retrieval practice. Tassomai done for a least 10 minutes per day will be massively important in ensuring students are GCSE ready. It is only effective when done little and often over the time until GCSE examinations. It is ineffective when not done and left until before exams.

We have been using Tassomai with students in since Christmas and have an expectation that it is done on a daily basis. However, there have been perhaps a significant number of students who have not used the program for many days and continue to do this sporadically despite reminders from members of staff.

We have therefore decided that students who have missed two days or more of quizzing in a week will attend a compulsory extended study session to catch up. Progress will be checked on a Friday and those students who need to then attend compulsory extended study will then do so on the following Thursday. We would greatly appreciate it if parents could give students a nudge to check whether Tassomai has been completed.

Thank you for your continued support in ensuring our students develop strong habits of work and learning and in our aim of becoming exam ready.

C22 Fieldwork 19th February

Students in C22 will be going out on fieldwork to Conisbrough Castle on the 19th February in order to further their knowledge/learning about Norman castles. Admiral will leave at 9.30 and come back to school for 12.30, Skipper will leave at 12.30 and come back to school for about 3.30 (depending on traffic). Lunchtime arrangements will not be affected so students can take their lunches as normal. Students should wear warm clothing and comfortable shoes… it will be cold!

Thanks for you continued support!
