Hello Year 6! It seems very strange to have to contact you in this way whilst the country is on lockdown. Hopefully we will all be able to get back to normal as soon as possible. I met lots of you at the open evening or during a separate school visit earlier this year, but for anyone I haven’t met yet let me introduce myself. I am Mr Moore and I will be your Head of Year when you come to Lees Brook. I am really looking forward to greeting you all in person and welcoming you to the school properly.
I’m sure that you and your parents have got lots of questions about what will happen to help you get ready to come to Lees Brook. This section of the website has been created especially to help us do that by keeping in touch with you are regularly as possible. This will allow me to give you some activities to do to prepare you for life at Lees Brook so that, hopefully, you will have answers to the questions you may already have – and even have answers to questions you haven’t thought of yet!
Keep checking this page regularly so that you can stay up to date with all the information coming out just for our new learners and their families. I will try and put something new to do on this page each week so that there isn't too much to think about all in one go! I look forward to seeing everyone soon, but for now stay safe.
Head of Year 7 (as of September 2020)
We have been in touch with our school uniform supplier, Morleys, to ask about their plans to be able to supply uniform to everyone that needs it for next academic year. As you will appreciate, their plans will be informed by the direction they are given by the government. They hope to be able to give another update next week - which we will let you know as soon as we receive it.
This week, I would like you to get creative! As you have probably seen by now, our school motto is "Lead, Believe, Create, Succeed" and we embrace these ideas in everything we do. For your transition task this week I want you to create something that shows me what you understand by the four words in our motto. This could be a piece of artwork, a poem, a newspaper article that you have written... The possibilities are endless! You might choose to focus on one of the words, or you might want to take on more than one. I am really looking forward to seeing what you come up with this week - so do email me a picture of what you make if you are able to.
From reading your letters to your new form tutor, a lot of you have said you would like to know more about the different subjects you will study in Year 7. So, this week, I have decided to CREATE an activity that will LEAD you to find out (if you’ve already done last week’s task, you’ll know why those two words stand out).
Across the top of the website, you will see 11 different tabs. The third one across says “Curriculum”. Click on that and a drop-down menu will appear. The top option on the list says “Subjects”. Click on that and another list will appear, which has all the different subjects you will study at Lees Brook. Clicking on any of these will take you to that subject’s page where you can find out more about what you will be learning in that subject during Year 7.
See if you can find out:
• What you will do in the Autumn term of Year 7 in English, maths and science
• What you will do in the Autumn term of Year 7 in 2 other subjects of your choice
• If you already know anything about some of the topics from primary school.
Some of you have been asking about what sort of food is available from the school canteen and what sort of clubs are on offer at Lees Brook. The answer to both questions is LOTS – but if you’d like to find out more, follow the links below:
