We believe every child and young adult at Sprowston Community High School should be ... 'Healthy, happy and safe; loved, valued and respected; and have high aspirations for their future.'
Last week Ms Humpleby invited me to a Year 7 Art lesson to see some of the homework that students had completed. The work on display was fantastic and showed that a lot of time and effort had gone into planning and creating some outstanding pieces. Really impressed!
UKMT Junior Maths Challenge certificate winners from Year 7 and 8 were awarded their certificates this week.
Well done to all of them! Special congratulations to Stanley M from Year 8 (Gold Certificate and Best in Year) and Harriet K from Year 7 (Gold Certificate and Best in School) Harriet also qualified for the next round of the competition: The Pink Kangaroo. We await her results with anticipation.
More Black death cures from Mr Cordeaux's Yr7 History class. Great presentations by Matthew, Joseph, Rojin & Laura! Well done!
Congratulations to all of the students from Y7 to Y10 who have successfully completed phonics programmes this year. We have seen all of the students engaging really positively and as a result students have made significant progress in reading and spelling scores. Special thanks to Mrs Richardson for running these interventions and organising the celebration party- it was a bit hot for cake but we managed it anyway!
Some of our Year 7 students had the chance this week to venture out on to the school field as part of their Geography lesson. Linked to the topic the Coasts, the students were tasked with the creation of a sand model that accurately illustrates how coastal process around the UK can lead to the creation of Caves, Arches, Stacks, Stumps. A great way to get a challenging concept across.
I wanted to say a huge well-done to Arwen Stewart in Year 7. Arwen recently took part in the European Karate Championships in Hungary. She is obviously an extremely talented martial artist as she won gold in the team kata, gold in the team kumite and silver in individual kata. What an incredible achievement!
Congratulations to everyone who achieved a silver achievement award this week in our special assembly.
They have gained 30 or more achievement points since the start of the academic year. Well done!
The following students have achieved their Silver Awards for receiving 30 or more Achievement Points this year.
A fantastic effort - well done!
We have been running a competition in Year 7 to create a form poster in each Tutor group that tells us something about each student.
I have been looking at some of them this morning and I'm really impressed with the detail and effort which has gone into them. I particularly like 7SN's poster where each student has been represented by a Disney character whose name begins with the same initial. Brilliant!
Here at Sprowston Community High School we have so much to offer and celebrate within the school. We post a number of articles on the school website but there is a wealth of information to be found in our numerous twitter feeds. Below we have listed the individual accounts and link to them.
