Class of 2015 6th Form Leavers

Year 13’s last day is always filled with mixed emotions for staff and students alike - happy that the students have come to the end of their education here at St Thomas More and are moving onto their next stage and nerves because they still have those important exams to sit and get the grades needed and, finally,   sadness because we have been a big part in our students lives some of them having been with us for 7 years! We held a farewell breakfast with lots of pupils donning their Yr11 ties and blazers – some of them don’t look a day older than when they were actually in Yr11!  There was singing of the School Hymn, goodbyes and dancing… some spectacular dancing and some strange uniform attire…..!

Bully Beat Workshop

On Wednesday this week, Form 7S were lucky enough to be involved in a ‘Bully Beat’ workshop. They were selected to be the form to be involved in the process as they had the highest amount of praises on their respect cards in the previous term.

The workshop is funded by the Healthy Schools team. The work of the Nathan Timothy Foundation - 'The Songwriting Charity' addresses the emotional health and wellbeing of children and teenagers  using songwriting and music technology.  The objective of the day is for the Year 7 students to create their own anti-bullying anthem. The lyrical content was generated exclusively by them. It was a great team building exercise, and created awareness and discussion on anti-bullying. During the course of the day, the pupils wrote lyrics, composed melodies, making choices about musical sounds, singing, rapping, and designing CD covers.

Waterloo 200: Live Q&A with TV Historian Dan Snow

 On Wednesday, a small group of Yr9 students joined Mr Shearman and Mrs Ackred to listen to a live Q&A session hosted by The Waterloo 200 Schools Project. The project has involved our school and 199 others in researching aspects of the Battle of Waterloo. The Q&A session with the project’s patron, TV historian Dan Snow was held in the conference room. Mr Snow addressed a range of questions about Napoleon, Wellington and the significance of the battle to world history. It was an enlightening experience and the full video of the session will be shown to the rest of the students involved in research at a later date.

The project has included student led research and will be included in the Waterloo 200 book to be published later in June. This is in addition to Mrs Ackred and Yr9’s Tino Chaviri attending the national memorial service at St.Paul’s Cathedral later next month. Below is the link to the research led by the students. I hope you will join me in congratulating those involved and wishing them well as the project continues.
