This shorter week saw the very welcome return of Maclaren, fresh from his successes and increased medal tally after representing England in a Tae-kwondo tournament in Jamaica. Great work, Maclaren! In a shortened week, he has already made it back onto our praise log in maths: “his focus in class has been really impressive and his work has been at a really high standard” (Miss Haughey).
We also revisited the concept of “conflict” and worked in groups to address the following questions
- what is conflict?
- what causes conflict?
- how do our bodies react when we experience conflict?
- how might we seek to de-escalate conflict?
Crew Young, our “Youngsters” were ready to articulate their understanding of the issues and how – if they should experience conflict with others – they may be resolved.
Other “Youngsters” that made it onto the praise log this week:
“Alesha initiated a really fantastic conversation in maths where there was a disagreement in their answers….keep up the fab work!“.
“Adam completed (hums) homework early, to a good standard and with the option extension task completed well. Keep up the fab work!”.
“Brilliant effort on Ella’s homework. All questions answered in depth and the optional extension task was completed to a really high standard with lots of excellent effort! I’m impressed!”.
“In the test which they were given a 5 minute timer, Aaron managed to complete all questions and achieved 48/60. Despite his excellent score, Aaron showed compassion and respect for others too. He carried this work ethic over into the next task’…”.
“Louis has been extremely attentive attentive in lessons today. He really excelled in the angles work, completing his work, helping others around him and also giving the GCSE problem solving question a really good go. Thanks Louis, keep it up!”.
“I have seen a vast improvement in Nathan’s efforts in getting smart & working hard these last couple of lessons in maths and I am really impressed with his contributions. He is compassionate to others around him, helping them when they are stuck which is lovely to see. Keep it up!”.
“Keisha created a detailed fact file research project on Doncaster’s School for the Deaf in X-Block this afternoon. She chose a building that had relevance to her and the sign language studies she completes outside school, and showed craftmanship and quality in putting together the information on her doc. I was really impressed! Thanks Keisha!”.
Wow – an excellent week for Crew Young!
