E28 Crew Malala 2023 Round Up!

Crew Malala in E28 had a great term in Autumn 2023. Here are some of the highlights:

We have been working on our Duke of Edinburgh Voluntary Stewardship by taking our turn to pick up litter around the school site. We have it down to a science, splitting into teams and taking different areas. We can clear the site of litter in around ten minutes!

With 97% attendance, we won the attendance league for Term 1a! We are waiting to see if we can keep the top spot for Term 1b.

At the end of Term 1b, E28 had their termly awards. Crew Malala came out on top with three awards! Fasia won for kindness, Alex for most improved, and Holly won for consistently working hard. Holly was a unanimous decision by all teachers who voted.

Crew Malala are looking forward to what 2024 brings. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from Crew Malala. See you in January.

Crew Malala Preparing for Passage

Members of Crew Malala have started preparing for the passage presentations in the new year. Passage is where students have the opportunity to show how they have grown and that they are prepared for starting their GCSEs. This morning students reflected on their time at XP East and started preparing what they want to talk about during their Passage presentations.

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 diabetes.org.uk.

E28 Crew Malala getting creative with pledges!

Crew Malala spent some time creating colourful posters to decorate their Crew space. Each student created one letter or star and included a pledge for this term. Pledges include:

  • Manage my distractions
  • Show compassion to others
  • Take on more responsibility in Crew
  • Challenge myself to stay on task
  • Improve my listening skills

Every week members of Crew Malala will look at their praises and conducts from the week before, and reflect on how these might help them work to meet their pledges. Brilliant work Crew Malala!

The Floor is Lava for E28!

Welcome back to E28. Students spent the morning resetting Crew by playing a round of The Floor is Lava! Students had to work in Crews to move their whole crew across the sports hall without touching the floor or the obstacles on it, all the while keeping a tennis ball in a bit of drain pipe. Students developed their teamwork and communication skills, all while having a great time!
