Year 7 (continued)

William the Conqueror and was important during the English Civil War. It now makes a great ruin to explore. Highlights include searching for the elusive murder hole and was a great opportunity to have ice-cream in the sun. All Year 7 were a credit to Matravers and received comments from members of the public about their positive attitude, enthusiasm and outstanding behaviour whilst visiting the site. A great day out had by the pupils and tutors alike.

We still have some exciting events planned for the Year 7’s to experience for the first time before the end of the year – our own Sports Day where various sporting events are available to become involved in with different choices throughout the day. MFest is also yet to occur and is something fantastic to look forward to – a great day for all the school to enjoy with music, food and entertainment throughout the day. A superb opportunity to listen to and watch local talent as well as the opportunity to get up and perform in front of the school, singing or dancing or both are more than welcomed. We as a year group will also be running stalls for our own enjoyment as well as those from other year groups and any proceeds will be given to charities. And finally, the last Celebration Assembly of the year in which I expect to be handing out a huge amount of certificates and prizes to wrap up an outstanding year for the year group.

Another rewards trip was also run for those who have continuously upheld the correct attitude and behaviour throughout the year. This was a day trip to Corfe Castle in Swanage, not only building on their Historical and Geographical knowledge developed in their respected subjects, but also to have a great day out and have a fun trip enjoying the weather. The castle was built by

As the year comes to a close, I’ve started to reflect on how the year has panned out. I am incredibly proud of the year group and their achievements so far as well as how they have settled down into Matravers life. They have embraced not only the ethos of the school but continuously applied themselves in lessons and I am continuously overwhelmed by the amount of emails from other members of staff indicating how impressed they are with effort levels, work produced or the intelligence of classes they teach.

The way the year group have approached extra- curricular has also been inspiring – ranging from sporting clubs and fixtures and Dance performances all the way through to performing in the school production ‘Oliver’ and working within the community.

The amount of individuals that had already achieved their end of year targets for English and Maths at the end of MBU2 is staggering; this reflects and mirrors the attitude of the year group and their hard work they have put in over the year no matter their starting points. As we have just finished our third and final exam week I’m sure that these results will supersede that of the last MBU and we’ll soon find this out from our results during PPD 3. I’m sure more individuals will have met their end of year targets not just in English and Maths but also across the board in other subjects as well if progress has continued at the rate it has been.

Id also like to take the opportunity to thank the tutor team this year who have worked tirelessly to help and support the year group as well as myself. Have a well deserved rest and be safe over the Summer holidays.

Mr Taylor, Progress Leader Year 7
