As we get to the end of a busy term, it's always good to reflect.
Last week we had a visit from Jim Nixon, ex Head teacher at Great Yarmouth High and CNS. He couldn't believe how much the school has changed since he last visited and told us that if he was Head teacher here, he would be very proud.
I am exceptionally proud.
This term, we set ourselves 3 key aims:
We think we have come a long way in achieving these aims but we are not complacent and we know we still have work to do.
We have also been listening carefully to the voice of our parents and carers and responding to the things that you identify as areas of improvement. This week I will be sending out a "You said, we did" email to explain our responses so far.
We are so lucky to work with amazing students and supportive families. Thank you so much. Have a fantastic holiday when it comes and see you in 2019!
We would like to take this opportunity to confirm timings for the end of this term and for the January start. School will finish on Tuesday 18th December at 1.30pm .
School buses and taxis have been altered to allow for this. Please ensure your child knows the arrangements for them to get home at this time.
School will reopen for the New Year on Thursday 3rd January 2019 at 8.55am.
We would like to wish you all a happy holiday. Mrs Burton. Office Manager
A group of 23 Year 9 students took park in Discover Your Voice debate training on Friday 29th June. These keen talkers had a series of morning activities to help their reasoning, providing evidence to back up a point and listening and response skills. This included playing Ma Ma Moo Election, a game where you have to get elected varying tone and pitch but only using the words ‘Ma, Ma, Moo’! It’s amazing how much you can convey using pitch, tone and body language!
We learnt about the Extended Mace format for debating and in the afternoon had a chance to put our skills into practice! There were two motions:
Doddle provides a comprehensive range of engaging online teaching, homework and assessment resources, to support learning and progress across the secondary curriculum in a range of subjects. It allows staff to assign varied resources to support classroom learning (presentations, audio, animations and revision materials), interactive presentations and self-marking quizzes to instantly assess understanding, and a secure and straightforward platform for teachers to assign any homework task.
Here at Sprowston Community Academy 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.
