Crew Nightingale are already rising to the challenge of this crucial academic year. Students have reflected on their mock exams and created themselves new revision timetables for the first half term. These have been based on the areas from their mock exams they have identified as needing to improve. It has been really pleasing to see the quality and integrity of their reflections as well as the targets they have set. While the mornings this week have focused on academic growth our afternoons have looked at character growth and how we can work as a Crew to achieve and succeed. Building on successes at Sports Day, Crew have built upon on these skills – listening to each other, communicating effectively and working with each other- I have been really impressed with the conversations held and actions they have taken. I look forward to hearing Crew share their reflections during our upcoming SLCs. More on this to follow!
On our first day back at school, Ennis-Hill have spent time working with each other to put a smile on Doncaster Firemen’s face by baking flapjack for them. Beautiful work and beautiful product.
Ennis Hill have once again shown there wonderful revision skills during crew sessions this week and should be fully prepared for there Mock exams starting on Monday.
On top of this we had a check in on crew pledges (which were previously posted) and 100% of crew have stuck to these pledges. Keep up the amazing work Ennis Hill.
During the first week of term Ennis Hill have been brilliant. The week started with a lovely check in. There time both in crew and during sessions around the school has been used wisely and purposefully. It was an intense first week back, with a presentation of learning 2 days after they returned to school, work towards being ready for their Art GCSE after school and revision for the upcoming Mock exams which start on Monday 18th June.
This is the start of what will be one of the hardest years of there lifetime. Keep up the great work Ennis-Hill.
At the end of last term in Crew we spent some time reflecting and unpicking what our HOWLs should look like. Following our return from the two week break each Crew member has set new pledges to ensure they are Getting Smart, Being Kind and Working Hard. We will use these new pledges to frame and focus our final term in Year 10
Students in X21 have warmed up for their history pre-exam session this morning with a competitive quiz on their local site study.
Big up the Zebras and Sea Turtles!
This is a video put together for a celebratory Community Meeting by way of thanks for their hard work and leading the way in establishing our culture over the last five years.
As Mr Sprakes said, “It’s been a blast”.
Having recently completed SLC’s, Ennis Hill have shared their academic pledges with each other. Every week they will help each other to achieve these pledges and make progress ahead of their Summer Mock exams.
Crew Bronte completed their Student Led Conferences a few weeks ago which included students reflecting on their mock examination results and considering academic pledges for the upcoming examinations in June. Check out Alzbeta’s reflections below on how she is currently performing in her History GCSE.
Ally’s pledge to ask for more ‘feedback’ and her determination to ‘test’ herself and ‘revise more regularly’ shows that she is really ‘getting smart’. In the next few weeks in academic crew sessions we are going to look at revision resources and techniques so that we are fully prepared for the challenges ahead!
