Year 7 Spanish describing a house!

Today Year 7 (E30) learned words and phrases to say what rooms they might find in a home. Students practised the language and then worked together to produce a description of a house in Spanish. Students used sentence builders and graphics to develop their writing. They also worked on building their character traits of respect and integrity by working well and showing kindness to one another in their groups. Some students challenged themselves by adding in negatives and plurals.¡ Buen trabajo!

World Diabetes Day 2023

On Tuesday 14th November, staff and students at XP East helped to raise awareness of World Diabetes Day with the #nailingdiabetes campaign. World Diabetes Day is celebrated by the charitable organisation Diabetes UK – this year marks 100 years since the discovery of insulin, which has gone on to save millions of lives around the world.

Lots of staff and students agreed to have their nails painted blue to raise awareness of diabetes, to generate conversations about diabetes, and to let our family, friends and peers with diabetes know that we are here for them.

Thank you to everyone who got involved! For more information about diabetes, or if you would like to donate, please visit
