What a way to end our Y8 journey: cakes, memories and a good old sing song!
Here’s our Soundtrack to Year 8, along with our proudest moments of Y8. We hope you enjoy… Thank you to Ali for introducing me to Twenty One Pilots, but the tune of this soundtrack is definitely ‘Eye of the Tiger’ picked by Mackenzie!
Perfect – Ed Sheeran
I feel like I have had the perfect year compared to Y7! I work hard in class, I haven’t been getting into trouble, and I am managing my anger.
Jumpsuit – Twenty Øne Piløts
I’m most proud of my last SLC. I have grown in confidence and I’m getting great grades!
I’ll be there – Jess Glyn
I chose this song because Crew is always there for me. This year I’m proud of overcoming my challenges, like my dyslexia.
When I See You Again – Charlie Puth
I’m proud of Sports Day because we had a genuine feeling of Crew. I’m looking forward to seeing you all next year!
Centuries – Fall Out Boy
I’m proud because I have been able to cope with situations better than I did in Y7.
Try Everything – Shakira
I didn’t believe in myself at the beginning of the year. I made a pledge to “bring my enthusiasm to school every day” which I have done and I now try my hardest in all lessons. Thank you to Mr Ryder for encouraging me.
Thursday – Jess Glynne
My proudest moment was Outward Bound, climbing up the mountain. In the song it says “Who I am is enough” which reminds me that Crew are accepting of eachother despite our differences.
Shotgun – George Ezra
My proudest moment was my last SLC. I got great feedback and am proud of my progress.
3 nights – Dominic Fike
I chose this song because we spent 3 nights in Wales! This was my proudest moment because we all came together as a Crew. We had never been through a scenario like that and it tested our ability to get on together in tough times!
You’ve Got a Friend in Me – Randy Newman
I chose this song because it captures what Crew is! My proudest moment was seeing how Crew pulled together after the DD1 results, and how they supported one another to improve their overall HOWLs grades for DD2.
It is such a privilege to share every school day with this lot and I can’t wait to see what Y9 brings for us all. Crew isn’t just for the 12 young people who sit with me in our circle every morning; it’s for me, too. I learn so much from them every day (including some new dance moves!) They inspire me to work harder and be kinder every day and, because of Crew, I am a better person.
And now I’m checked out.
