Southam College are considering a new digital system of setting home learning called Show My Homework. We feel it will help parents know exactly what has been set, when the deadlines are and provide the support materials that can lead to successful completion.
If you would like to see a demonstration and give feedback we are having a short meeting on Thursday 25th May between 3.40 and 4.15pm.
Year 10 students will be sitting their first English Language GCSE on June 6th. They will attend a revision event at school this Thursday morning and we are providing every pupil with a pack of revision resources, a pen, a highlighter, A3 paper and revision cards. Please could you encourage them to use this resource pack for their half-term revision.
The year 10 rounders team had their inter area rounders tournament last week – finding the only dry day of the week.
First match started positively beating Kenilworth 7 1/2 to 6, showing some exceptional batting tactics.
Second game came against Campion, unfortunately the girls batting wasn’t as consistent in this game and saw them take a draw 4 1/2 all. Third game came against Myton a team we struggle against, unfortunately our luck didn’t change and Myton beat us.
Fourth game was against the leaders Kenilworth, Jess Griffin and Amy Carro had exceptional bats scoring 4 1/2 in this game. The girls fielded the best all day with Naomi Nicholas on 2nd getting 3 girls out in a short period of time. It came down to the final 2 balls and Kingsley managed to sneak to 5 rounders.
Final game against Aylesford saw the girls relax and enjoy their batting seeing most girls scoring in this game. Southam scored 7 1/2 and limited Aylesford to 5 rounders.
