You may have noticed rainbow pictures appearing in the front windows of houses.  This is to say "thank you" to key workers in these difficult times.  Well done and thank you to Sam for his rainbow poem.
This is what great effort and organisation looks like.

As pupils begin to get used to working from home with schools across the country now closed, some have been making videos showing creative ideas for what to do whilst social distancing.  Here are excellent examples from Ruby, Will and Maddie.

Well done to Autumn who competed in the Highbridge Arts Festival.  She did five dances and was placed in all of them.

Before the February half-term break, Year 7 were challenged to a British Values competition.  Miss D'Auria and her Year Team were delighted by the quality of the entries and deliberated over the winners for some time.  However, we could only choose one winning entry from each tutor group and one overall winner. 

7DJ's winners were Grace W, Ellie Mae M and Ella S for their clever booklet which opened out into different sections.

For 7SK, Bea SJW's acrostic poem won for its thoughtfulness and creativity.

7AMW's winner was Elise D, who baked and decorated a cake with the British Values.

7RM's winner was Arianne C for her detailed PowerPoint presentation.

Finally, 7KA's winners were Izzy B and Indah K for their clever video, which involved members of their family. 

Izzy and Indah were chosen as the overall winners of the competition for thinking outside the box, being creative and thoughtful in the planning of their video.
