In maths today, we sorted food into 2d shapes and 3d shapes. We discussed 3D shape properties using our new words, vertices, edges and faces. As a reward for all our hard work, we got to eat our tasty treats and have an ice team in our 3D cones.
The ultimate challenge: Charles and Diana’ s engagement gigsaw. Jamie and Corey are up to the 300 pieces challenge! They are working as a team, I cannot wait to see the finished picture!

This half term’s Opening Minds topic is Healthy Relationships. Pupils in year 9 had a session with the ladies from Syeda. They talked about the media and their relationship with the media and how everything they see and hear isn’t always true or real. They also discussed self esteem and body image and how it is important to love yourself.
Pupils explored Adrian Mole’s bedroom from the 1980s and compared it with a teenager’s bedroom today. Emma, Kiera and Claire acted out some extracts from the Secret Diary of Adrian Mole and compared them to life as a teenager now.
Pupils and staff at Springwell have raised over £200 for Red Nose Day. Pupils worse something red, bought noses and sold their baking. The care team had a sponsored make over and the staff did a sweepstake. Well done everyone, especially Emma in year Nine who was our fundraising co-ordinator.
