Wow, what a week we have had. I have never seen so much rain; ever. Our students coped well with it but Mr Hall our Site Manager had to don his wellingtons to make sure our students could get to the buses at the end of the day. Then we had the same next day…..
I had a lovely visit to Yoxford and Peasenhall Primary School and Middleton Primary School. I was given a lovely tour around both schools by the Head Boy and Girl. They were clearly very proud of their school. They showed me every part of the schools – what an amazing atmosphere there was. The Head Teacher, Gail Jerman, made me feel very welcome in both of the schools. A big thank you to all the staff and children and I look forward to seeing you soon.
I am visiting Saxmundham Primary School and Coldfair Green Primary School this week. I am looking forward to meeting the children and staff and getting to know more about the community that SET Saxmundham is a part of.
I am meeting with the contractor who will be building the Specialist Centres. Once this happens we will be starting with the building work. The building work will start as the students leave to start their summer holiday so there should be no disruption to the students learning.
Enrichment @ Saxmundham
Our students are delighted to be having the opportunity to be participating in skills that will be needed in Duke of Edinburgh Award. They also had so much fun trying to make a cup of tea too!
Design Technology @ Saxmundham
I was doing my normal walking round school just to see the learning our students were doing. I went into Year 10 DT and was met with beautiful, well thought out and well produced lampshades. The students were proud of them.
English @ Saxmundham
I have been delighted with the keenness of students in English. We are working on a project – writing newspaper articles. We have used a variety of stimulus and they have really developed their skills and their attitude to learning is impressive. These students worked independently for the whole lesson, then inviting me to come and read their work. So impressed…
Student Leadership Team @ Saxmundham
We have been really pleased with so many students coming forward to be part of the Student Leadership Team. Miss Mellor has received many letters expressing an interest in Head Boy and Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Girl and Prefects.
I would like to also share with you the new prefect tie.
