This year, thanks to NEACO funding students at SCA have the opportunity to take the Bronze level Arts Award, working with Jennie Robinson from the arts groups 'Wandering Arts'. 12 of the students got their practical project of to a flying start this week with a full day workshop at the fantastic Norwich Puppet Theatre.
The day began with an introduction to the range and types of puppets that are used and students were able to have a go, they even got to manipulate one of the oldest puppets in the theatre. The rest of the day was spent making their own puppets; some of the puppets they made have a rod and others have a rod and string mechanism.
Well done to the year 10 students who took part in the Year 10 Maths Feast at the City of Norwich School.
Both teams performed brilliantly and were great ambassadors for the school.
We were pleased to get an award for teamwork.
Thanks also to sixth former Katie Orbell who supervised one of the teams.
Ms Humpleby and Ms Harris went back to University on a Friday evening to experience a Drawing workshop to experience a Life Drawing class taught by NUA Fine Art tutor Will Teather
"It was a great experience, I really enjoyed the work and was pleased to see that even after all these years as an artist i can still learn something new. Will Teather has an exhibition at the Arts Centre on St Benedict St where is is also the current Artist in Residence. I went there for a talk on Saturday and it is well worth a visit"
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.
Excellent day at the East of England regional finals and well done to all who participated.
Congratulations to @Lightspeed_schs & @RacingBlackout for making it through to the national finals!
Well done to @SchsTechSquad for winning the Entry class too.
Year 11 students have been working exceptionally hard after school and at home, preparing and completing revision for the final exams in the summer.
The assemblies since the mock exams have covered the 'opportunities' that will be offered and making the most of these, which the students certainly have.
This student booklet offers practical advice to students linked to the 'Do's' and 'Don'ts' for revision, a range of revision techniques to try out and advice for the lead up, night before, morning and day of the exams.
A revision timetable outline can also be found here with instructions on how to plan and organise the time between now and the exams, setting out the exact timing for revision of students' subjects.
Preparation and organisation are key and this timetable really does help.
The hare has finally arrived at Sprowston Community Academy and the team of twelve Year 9s have been busy designing and producing creative writing about our hare.
From all the ideas created we have had the difficult task of choosing the design going forward. The finished hare has been based on their writing pieces and folktales on hares.
Watch this space as the team paint the hare ready for the trail.
