From all the staff at SSSC we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
CHILDREN IN NEED
Non-Uniform Day on Friday 13th November raised £100 for Children in Need. The children had fun dressing in their pyjamas or their favourite fancy dress clothes.
Thanks to everyone for your support.
The whole school had a fantastic day out at Drayton Manor Park thanks to the Rotary Club. All children had free admission to the park and lunch was also provided.
All the children received a medal and a snow globe.
GALLERIES OF JUSTICE
As part of the KS3 Theme curriculum students visited The Galleries of Justice in Nottingham. Pupils participated in an interactive workshop that taught pupils a greater understanding of Crime and Punishment throughout the ages.
Pupils had a wonderful day and have since produced some excellent work in Media, Food Technology, Drama and Art.
This half term KS4 have been to the cinema to watch the new James Bond movie, Spectre. We have visited The Quad to learn about Shakespeare and did some freeze frame animations. We have had a busy exciting term and are all looking forward to the Christmas Fayre and Swanwick’s got Talent. By Lucy and Bradley
