On Tuesday evening the Year 7 and Year 8 netball squads both played a friendly fixture against Princethorpe.
Both squads played some excellent netball, however we did narrowly miss out on the win in both matches. Considering it was the Year 7’s first ever match at Southam they are showing some really good potential for the future.
All students that are attending the Leicester Tigers trip please note that there has been a change of time for meeting at school. You need to be at the bus bays for 7:30 on Saturday Morning as our training has changed venue. You will need rugby kit for training in, a change of clothes for watching the game and also a packed lunch.
If you have not already, please register at http://www.leicestertigers.com/mymatchday and select Matchday Coaching Clinic from the options so you are able to get a goody bag on Saturday – if you do not register you will not be able to get one.
A massive well done and thank you to the 50 Year 8’s and Year 9’s who came to the first Photography Club. The students came up with some fantastic ideas based on their theme ‘What Southam means to me’. Miss Maksymiw
Students in Years 7,8,9 have been ‘up cycling’. They have been designing and making dresses out of old school ties. The girls have been pinning the ties together creating different shapes, to see what looks fashionable. The dresses are soon to be stitched together.
This Spring term is an important term for students in Years 7, 8, and 9. All students will have to make choices about subjects that they will like to study in the next academic year. This is a chance to spend more time on subjects they enjoy. This newsletter outlines information about these choices, important dates and the support and guidance available to students and their families. For students in Years 7 and 9 the decisions they have to make are very similar to previous years, however for students in Year 8 there is significant change ; this is due to the changes introduced at national level regarding the content and structure of examinations.
To mark anti-bullying fortnight, Year 8 have been creating assessed pieces about the consequences of a prank that goes wrong, exploring the emotions involved.
8SE4 put so much focus and effort in to their assessment; some created props/scenery at home in order to prepare! Special mention to Lilli-Rhed Jowett who created a shop till and Eric Jones who made a Southam-themed powerpoint to accompany his group’s piece of mime.
