Big well done to Team XP who took part in the Doncaster Schools Athletics championships on Monday and Tuesday. It was a fantastic couple of days and our students showed tremendous courage as usual and we’re incredibly proud of them.
Special mention goes to Callie Coates who won the long jump and 800m and to Ben Wheatcroft who won the 1500m. Well done, guys!
Year 7 students will be doing some fieldwork at Glass Park this week, to help them get to know their species better. We are helping Doncaster council to improve the park, and so students will be visiting regularly for the rest of this learning expedition.
7 Skipper will be going to Glass Park this Wednesday 21st June sessions 2&3.
7 Admiral will be going to Glass Park this Thursday 22nd June sessions 2&3.
Students will be back in school before lunch, so will not need any food for the fieldwork.
The weather is expected to continue to be very hot, and the pollen count remains high, so please make sure that your son or daughter is dressed appropriately and is prepared for the weather with:
- A hat
- A large bottle of water
- Hayfever medication if appropriate (medication needs to be in the original box, with a letter of instructions/permission)
We suggest students wear long trousers and a light long sleeved top so they do not get bitten by any bugs. Students are welcome to bring another set of cooler clothes to change into at lunch time.
There are two quizzes set for students in I AM LEARNING. These need to be completed by 8pm on Sunday 18th June.
Here is a virtual copy of the medical consent form sent home with students. This is only for any updates/changes that are required for your child.
On Friday the Cast theatre held an event where bands played to the public. Our Samba Band were there to perform and did a great job!
A reminder to all parents, students in Year 9 will be having their booster injections on Tuesday 13th. Some students still need to bring in their permission slips for this injection.
If students have prescribed medication that they need to take during the school day, we can not administer it without information and permission from parents.
Medication needs to be in a box with the manufacturer’s instructions. This should be accompanied by a signed and dated note of consent including instructions for administration.
On Thursday 15th June at 6pm we will be holding an information evening for Class of 21 parents and students to cover GCSE and Post-16 provision at XP.
On the evening students will receive a set of high quality textbooks to help in their GCSE preparation.
Year 8 were asked to design some branded clothing for XP East, and describe it in Spanish. Here are some of their designs…
