Happy Half Term Everyone!
This week at Spring Brook Upper we have celebrated some very special birthdays. Mr Bocking and Mr Heaton had landmark birthdays. We have also wished Mr Coldwell and Mrs Culhane happy birthday too.
We also wish those who have a birthday in half term a very happy birthday too: Cody W, Lewis M, Kyle, Harrison and Quinton.
Mr Hopkins has had a very good week. I love the photos but especially this week I have smiled at the photos of Dawud and Tyron on their adventures. A big shout out to Kyren for his weight lifting also.
“The last week in PE and Outdoor Ed has been brilliant at Spring Brook.
We also see how resilient our pupils are during these challenges as it becomes very easy to just give up and the main message is to hang in there and perform your absolute best – even when it’s hurting!
I’ll give more of an update on results after the half term holidays after I’ve collated them but all of our pupils should be very proud of themselves!
We’ve also had a couple of students having a go at some Olympic weightlifting skills during lunch and break times. Kyren has been learning the technique for a ‘clean’ in preparation for the ‘clean and jerk’ and has really smashed the technique ready to move on to the next stage.
This was Luds Church in Staffordshire and it truly is an amazing experience to scramble through the huge crack in the earth and see the amazing colours of the vegetation!
It is just like being in a South American country rather than a windy and rainy England!
Mrs Culhane has enjoyed her week in SBU 7 – great work boys!
“SBU 7 have had a busy week, we have made valentines cards and painted wooden hearts for people we love and care for.
We would like to welcome Bayley to SBU7, he is settling in well.”
We’ve had trips to the Museum of Science and Industry and the war museum.
“We have had a fab week at SBU 3. We took a trip to the Science and Industry museum and cooked some tasty treats in Food Tech. We also wrote some fantastic shape poems using similes and metaphors in English. A relaxing week off has been well earned!”
I loved the poetry in Miss Batchelor’s class. The poem about the eye was especially good.
I would like to say a huge thank you to the staff here at SBU for all of their hard work and dedication this half term. Please enjoy your week with family and friends, have a good rest everyone.
We return to school on Monday 28th February at 9am, until then, stay safe.
