Learning about different countries and their cultures is always fun. Currently, Year 8 are working on a topic relating to Kenya. In this topic we learn about weather and climate, tourism and development issues.
This week we have asked some Year 8 classes to produce a creative 3D map of Kenya to help them learn about this distant place but also to help improve their locational knowledge.
What students have produced has been great. These are just a few samples. Prizes were given out for the teams that worked the best together and for the most informative maps.
This year (as usual) many books are being turned into movies and adapted for television.
Challenge yourself to read some of the books before you see the film in the cinemas or on the television.
Come to reading group on Wednesday lunchtimes in the library to share your thoughts and hear other people’s. You don’t even have to have read the whole book to attend!
Congratulations to all of the students who were nominated for Star of the Week this half term.
This is in recognition for excellence in or out of lessons, students' positive attitude, or academic achievement.
Keep up the good work.
The next few weeks on the run up to Christmas are very important as for the first time ever you have the opportunity to shape your education, choosing some of the subjects you will study in years 10 and 11.
As a year group you are making great progress across the curriculum, but there is still a lot to be done between now and the end of Year 9 so keep up the good work.
Sprowston Community Academy would like to say a massive thank you to Taverham Garden Centre, Tesco Blue Boar and lovely people form the local community for their kind donations of Christmas decorations.
Our Student Reception is now looking very Christmassy and all students and staff are saying how wonderful it looks.
Congratulations to all the students from this half term who achieved an Academic Success Award. This is to recognise their outstanding academic achievement and attitude.
The awards are given by class teachers to those students who have shone in terms of working extra hard in and out of lessons, or persevering with difficult work, along with those who have exceeded their personal target grades and achieved at a high level.
Well done to all students and keep up these really high standards for the rest of the year.
