Year 7 'Make Your £5 Grow'
Congratulations to both our Year 7 classes for taking part in the Financial Capability Themed Week. They worked together to organise and offer a range of activities, eg, nail painting, games, puppet show, craft and food stalls. Other pupils were able to visit the stalls during the week and spend lots and lots of money!! Thank you for supporting this event.

THE CLASSROOMS MAY BE CLOSED BUT THE LEARNING CONTINUES
I really hope you are all keeping well especially in these circumstances as we come to terms with the horror of COVID 19.
The classrooms may be closed but the learning continues. The work in your learning packs will now near completion and learning has commenced online. Every Monday and Wednesday your teacher will post a note along with learning activities based on your class topics. These may be accessed through the Learning From Home Fun and Games Tab. Click on your year group to access your learning and guidance from your teacher. Aim for approximately one hour of online learning daily.
Working in isolation is tough for pupils and a lot of the teaching which we do in school allows for communication with peers. Without this one hour working on your own might seem a lot more to a child. Once we get back to school teachers will make sure that everyone gets back on track.
Enjoy the time as best as you can as a family. Do the things that regular life doesn’t always allow time for, watch movies, cook meals together, play board games and enjoy each other’s company.
Let’s use this era of enforced empathy, and when the storm clears let something beautiful unfold. We’ve never needed each other more, we will get through this and come out stronger and wiser.
Take care and stay safe
