This afternoon Year 9 students took part in an historical crime investigation as part of the ‘Go Further’ week of activities. Groups worked through a range of contemporary evidence to develop their own theories about which of the suspects was most likely to have been ‘Jack the Ripper’ before creating crime boards to support their judgements. We were really impressed with the both the independent learning and source analysis skills on show – well done to all involved!
In atrocious conditions last Saturday at a wet and windy Pingles Athletics track in Nuneaton, a selection of our courageous students went head to head with the best athletes from around the county. We had fantastic performances all round and 4 of our students have gained selection to the Warwickshire Athletics Team to compete in the Mason Trophy next weekend at the International Athletics Stadium in Birmingham against counties from across Central and West England. Emily Lovett (1500m S/C), Izzy Fairhurst (80m Hurdles), Rhys Bennett (300m, Triple Jump) & Austin Turner (Discus).
Well done to all those who took part. You were a credit to the school and helped the Central Warwickshire Team to win the overall team prize.
We are sending letters out via tutor time today about the Parents’ Meeting for this trip. The meeting will give you an overview of the trip and an opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
It is being held on Tuesday 2nd July, at 6pm in the Core.
If you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to contact Mrs Gough in the History department.
Fantastic performances all round last night at the Year 9 tournament. Myself and Mrs Mellor are so proud of the following students Abbie B, Rosie D, Megan F, Jess C, Amelia R, Holly Y, Sophie S, Issy B, Keira M and Ruby I.
Although we went through our round as runners up we absolutely smashed our batting to beat an impressive Kingsley School team 11-10. Unfortunately though we lost to Myton narrowly in the final by 1 rounder for the second time. The girls batting, fielding, communication & teamwork were superb.
Well done girls I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Mrs Herbage
The year 9 team consisting of: A.Bourton, M.Free, K.Moore, R.Dillon, H.Yates, A.Reeves, I.Bergendorff, J.Carro, R.Irving and S.Swallow, played brilliantly against a strong Kenilworth team.
The first innings Southam batted first and some big hits from M.Free and R.Dillon got the score going, Kenilworth fielded well and minimised the Southam score line however, they finished with a good 4 and a half rounders. Kenilworth then batted and Southam fielded with positive attitudes and excellent team work. We worked hard to stop the score and Kenilworth then scored 4 and a half rounder – leaving the first innings at a draw.
The second innings saw Southam and Kenilworth battle it out again with Southam scoring 4 rounders when batting. When we fielded for a second time, the team worked excellently together with some outstanding bowling from H.Yates and backstopping from J.Carro. K.Moore had a fantastic near catch and stopped Kenilworth scoring a full rounder, whilst A.Bourton had a couple of great catches. With the team pushing hard until the last ball, Southam kept Kenilworth at 4 rounders, with the final score 8 and a half rounder each.
Overall a fantastic match from both teams. Good luck tonight for the tournament girls and well played.
