YEAR 8 ROUNDERS

With the summer term coming to an end we wanted to say a BIG well done to the year 8 Rounders team. We started the season with only 7 players and now have over 24 in the squad. The girls have shown fantastic commitment to training and have made brilliant progress. They really are an amazing group of girls. We are excited about next year and hope we have a lot more competitive fixtures.

Well done girls, we hope you have a lovely summer holiday.

Mrs Mellor, Miss Carro and Miss Murphy.

Warm Weather Reminder 

All students are reminded to bring a refillable water bottle to school. If outside at break and lunch (or for a PE lesson) please also remember your sun cream. 

Monday will be a no blazer day – please remember to bring any items you need from your pockets e.g. passes 

Rounders

There is a YEAR 8 ROUNDERS match on Thursday 7th July away at North Leamington school.

The team sheet is in the gym changing room. It is the same team that were playing in the tournament last week.

Please let Mrs Mellor know if you cannot play.

YEAR 8 ROUNDERS

Practice will still be on tonight even if the weather is bad. We will go inside to train. They have re-scheduled our Year 8 Tournament to this Thursday the 30th of June. VERY IMPORTANT we will provide transport there, but if you are selected, we will ask if you can arrange your own transport home. The tournament will be based in Leamington, venue to be confirmed.

Dance Production 2022

It’s Back!

Dance Production will be returning to the stage in December 2022, and we want to see “Everybody dance!”

We need your help to make it bigger and better than ever before. Get your choreography hats on and create a routine that is unique, polished and performed to the best of your ability ready for the auditions in October.

We’re looking for variety;  from solos to groups and styles from ballet to acro. 

All ages are welcome to audition. GCSE PE students in year 9/10 who would be assessed in dance will be expected to enter a piece as this is a fantastic opportunity to be assessed and filmed on stage. 

If any key stage 4 or 5 students are interested in supporting and choreographing a routine for younger students please email Mrs Turton directly  (warman.l@welearn365.com) or speak to Mrs Mellor.

Year 8 Rounders

BIG well done to all the year 8 Rounders girls who have shown amazing commitment to training. The number at training is going up & up each week which is great to see. We are going to have a brilliant squad. See you there next week girls.
