Star Wars Day proved to be great fun! Some staff and students dressed up and all Key Stage 3 form classes participated in the lightsaber competition. Each form class made a lightsaber with upcycled materials and the form tutors competed against each other. Ms Bishop from year 8 and Mr Duarte from year 7 were the finalists with Ms Bishop the ultimate winner. The winning form class then partook of the goodies inside the Death Star piñata carefully made by Mr Osborne.
It was all great fun and an opportunity to have a laugh.
Bayside were approached by Bishop Fitzgerald to work on this project. Bishop Fitzgerald had an internal competition where the students had to design a well-being bench. A winner was selected from each year group - years 3, 4, 5 and 6. Our A-Level art students then recreated each of the winning designs on a bench.
It was lovely to work with our colleagues in Bishop Fitzgerald and for our students to showcase their work.
I would like to thank all the parents and pupils for attending our options talk and the attached subjects fair. We hope it was useful to our students and helps them make the best possible choices.
Many of you attended the open evening on revision and study tips. Please find a pdf of the presentation attached here.
There were some amazing creations from our Year 7s. They have been studying medieval castles and they were tasked with building models and trying to incorporate all the different things they had learned about the castles. It was great to see so many of the castles' features incorporated in the models.
Well done to the students and their teachers!
It was difficult to make a choice but in the end it was:

History students who had received the students of the month award went on a guided trip to the Northern Defences. It was a great morning out!
It is wonderful to see our students volunteer to be ambassadors for GibSams. They have lots of ideas which they are keen to share and great enthusiasm. Thank you and well done!
During the last few days of term 1 we set up the static bikes and attempted to cycle the distant to lapland. This year we had much encouragement from our younger students!
Thank you everyone for all the support.
