This morning was an extra-early start, as we had to be in Ilkeston by 9am to go bowling. We arrived and had a really great time, playing loads of games, and we even got to go into the arcade and have a go on the stuff in there too. We got back to school and had an early-ish lunch, and then – because it was such a nice day – we played some games outside.
After lunch, we all went back to the art rooms to finish off the work that we had done earlier in the week – some people got to make extra items, because they had finished, but it was a ncie opportunity to make sure that we didn’t leave anything half done. All of the art work is drying now, and we will be able to take it home in the last week of summer school.
After a busy and fun day, we all met in the hall to say goodbye to each other – some of the staff won’t be doing the second week of summer school, so the students won’t see them until September, but we will have some new staff to work with as well as Mrs. Morris, Mrs. McKenna, Miss Lord and Mr. Cullingworth, who have all been involved this week.
It’s been an action packed and fun week, and hopefully the students will be looking forward not only to the second week of Summer School, which starts on the 28th August, but also to coming up to Holgate to study and learn in September.
The staff would like to thank all of the students who participated, and all of the parents and carers. We have had a great time with the students, who have been really well-behaved and invested everything into all of the activities. It has been a pleasure to work with these new Year 7s.
