A lot to celebrate over the last few days
Head of Year 7
On the 25th of November we held the Enterprise Extravaganza event, which we hope will begin to become an annual event due to the successes and achievements of all students involved. This event allows students to create their own business and run their own stalls for one day, with a chance to win awards from very well-known judges. We had over 45 teams taking part in the Enterprise event and we even had one from another school. Young Chamber were organising the whole event, along with running it on the day. There were seven prizes awarded to teams on the day. The judges had spent a long time in understanding who deserved each prize.
Well done to the amazing Yr11 students who worked so hard in their Photography mock exam on Thursday and Friday this week.
The theme was Order and/or Disorder:
After 8 weeks of research, planning, technical and academic process and a massive amount of hard work their individual creativity, experimentation and ideas have developed into these excellent outcomes.
As we approach the midway point of this second half term of Year 10, it is pleasing to see that Year 10 students remain on track to excel in their GCSE courses. Here are a few facts that perhaps explain why they are doing so well…
69% of Year 10 students have an attendance figure that Ofsted would recognise as Outstanding,
70% have never missed a homework deadline, ever been late,
89% of the Year Group have been an average Attitude-to-Learning grade that shows great commitment towards their studies,
And 68% of the year are performing above where we would expect to see them at this point in their courses.
All in all, a great start to Year 10.
This term so far has been really exciting in the Library. Each month we have been on a trip to meet famous children’s authors. In September a group of Librarians met Julian Sedwick and participated in a creative writing workshop led by him, focussing on developing characters in stories.
As part of our Anti-Bullying Awareness Scheme here at Sprowston Community High School our Year 10 & 11 Anti-Bullying Ambassadors visited Falcon Junior School on Tuesday 15th November to run workshops with Year 5 on the effects bullying has on a young person physically and mentally. The content of the day consisted of team building activities and role play scenarios tackling many different types of bullying, the day ended with reflection and evaluation.
On Friday 4th November, year 9 students of French, Spanish and German experienced a special lesson conducted by student “Language Ambassadors” from the University Of East Anglia (UEA)
Ambassadors Ross and Ines spoke to the students about the importance of learning other languages, followed by taster sessions in either French or Japanese.
Following are some of their comments on this event.
Sprowston Community High School has been victorious in the East Anglian heats at the annual Top of the Bench Science Investigation Day, and will go on to compete in the national finals in 2017.
