TIMETABLE - WEEK B (24/11/2014)

 HEADTEACHER'S BLOG - 26th NOVEMBER 2014

November has been a special month for all at the school.  

NOTICES  

School Closure: 5th December
A reminder that school is closed next Friday 5th December.   This is a disaggregated training day with staff using the five hours of time for additional training across the academic year.

Year 11 Mock Examinations
Year 11 mocks start on Monday 8th December and run through to the following week.  We will be having an assembly with Year 11 next week to remind them of the importance of preparation and effective revision.  The students have been working really hard and are making good progress.  This is a key chance for them to demonstrate what they can do under examination conditions.  

New Bus from Marston Green
Thanks to the work of Claire Cheswick, School Business Manager, the new no 70 bus route will formally start from Monday 1st December, It will be called the 891 and our students should get on this bus as opposed to the 70.  If you have any queries about this please contact the school and ask to speak to Claire Cheswick.  Hopefully this will improve the transport for our ever growing number of students from Marston Green Juniors.  

NEWS AND EVENTS  

Remembrance
Remembrance is such an important time for all of us in the school community and the wider community of Coleshill.  I felt privileged to read a poem at the service at St Peter and St Paul’s Church on the Sunday, along with our Head Boy, William Moore, and our Head Girl, Brooke Tarrant.   With the centenary this year we were determined to make it an occasion that would be truly memorable to honour the old boys who gave so much for us.  Year 7 students, and some staff, made over 150 clay poppies which we installed in the mound on the playground.  We were honoured to have special guests come to the school on Remembrance Day itself and listen to war poems read by Year 11s before joining us in the hall for the service itself.  You can read more about it by clicking here.   A big thank you to the art, technology and site staff who came together to make the poppies.

Leisure Centre
This week has seen the first teaching in the new Leisure Centre.  The students and staff are thrilled with the new facilities.  Students have enjoyed using the new trampolines and playing basketball.  The Year 11 GCSE Dance students have been working in the new dance studio. There will be plenty of press coverage over the coming weeks as we have the official opening on 4th December.   

Children in Need
We were all so proud of the students on Friday 14th November when the whole school came together to raise money for Children in Need.  Students enjoyed an extended lunch break in which they spent their money on a range of mad cap events such as the Sixth Form version of ‘Blind Date’ where Daniel Hill made a very good Cilla, to smaller events such as ‘Sponge the Fenner’;  I think Daniel Fenner regretted that one!  Over all we raised more than £1,200 which is a fabulous effort and more than last year.  The day certainly lived up to our motto of ‘Learning and Achieving Together’.   Please click here for news article and photographs.

Marvellous Music
There are so many fabulous things happening in the Music Department I don’t know where to start.  At the start of term we had a much needed injection of new equipment, funded by Coleshill Grammar School Foundation Governors.  This has included all sorts of instruments and technical equipment and the amazing Mrs Deeley is even putting together a small recording studio!   The Christmas Choir are currently rehearsing every lunchtime for a carol performance at Morrisons and will also be performing at the start of assemblies.  

Panto Time
A reminder that our panto extravaganza, ‘Cinders and a Few Intruders’ is on 10th, 11th and 12th December and tickets will go on sale in school next week.  Parents can pay via Parent Pay on line from next week.  I would encourage families to book up quickly to avoid disappointment.  A letter detailing arrangements and prices will be coming home with students this Thursday.  Please click here for letter.

Theatre Trips
On Wednesday 12th Year 7 went to London to see ‘Matlida’.  Thank you to the staff who went on the trip. The students had a fantastic time and loved the show.  A Level Drama and Theatre Studies students went to Warwick Arts Centre on Friday 21st to watch ‘The Chambers’ exploring the theme of capital punishment.  It was a thought provoking and interesting piece which has given them some ideas for their own devised piece on the theme of desensitisation, which will be performed in January.  

Jaguar Challenge with St Edwards and Castle Bromwich Juniors
Each other Thursday after school one of our ICT suites is transformed into a Formula One engineers area, with Year 5 and 6 students from St Edwards and Castle Bromwich Juniors working with our Year 7 students to design the next world championship winning car for the likes of Lewis Hamilton to drive!  They are having a great time and brushing up on their mathematics skills while they do it.
