This week we have started our clubs and students have been able to take part in a fantastic range of activities.
In the Reading Without Wall Club this year we will be running a series of challenges aimed at encouraging students of all ages to develop a love of reading.
The RWW club got off to a great start on Wednesday afternoon when a group of secondary students ran a reading workshop for some Year 2 students.
The focus was ‘vehicles’ and after exploring a range of books on the topic, the students got together and created some 3D models. Many thanks to all those who got involved.
Amongst the many other clubs available have also been basketball.
A fantastic opportunity for those wanting to learn to dance
Miss Hardiman has started a Glee club for those budding singers out there
and some student prefer to play games at our board games club.
If your son or daughter has not already joined in with a club there is still space in many of these and I would encourage them to talk to the teachers and get involved.
We have also had Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4, 5 meet the Tutors evening this week and I am very grateful to everyone who was able to come along. It is very important that we can build a relationship between our teachers and our parents as we all have the best interest of your son’s and daughter’s at heart. We can support them best if we all understand each other and can build a relationship based on trust and cooperation.
We have presentations and conversation about settling into Secondary School, about clubs and trips, about qualification and university entrance as well as many other topics. I hope to see all of you again in the future as well as all those parents who were not able to make it this week.
I hope you have a great weekend and since there are some severe weather warnings I wish you and your families a safe weekend.
Head of Secondary
