Year 11 Leavers Assembly 2023

On Friday 30th June we said an emotional goodbye to our current Yr 11 pupils in a whole school assembly. We are very proud of every pupil and all their achievements, and how they have matured as young people.

The assembly was very special and celebrated the lives and achievements of each pupil.

 

Some of our 6th Form pupils catered and served food to parents and carers, and were incredibly professional - well done!! 

 

We're so proud of you all and wish you all the very best in the future!

Job Skills

In our maths topic 'financial capability', the students in Violet class have been learning that they can earn money by doing jobs. The students had fun role playing as cleaners, teachers and waiters/waitresses and then received money after completing their jobs!

Work Experience 2022

A group of nine pupils from Year 11 have secured a weekly spot of Work Experience at the Dons Local Action Group Food Hub. 

 

The DLAG Food Hub works in partnership with the AFC Wimbledon Foundation to help the local community fight poverty and offers support to those who are in need. In addition to providing food parcels, DLAG also provide household goods, furniture and appliances. 

 

Year 11 are supporting the DLAG volunteers to pack food parcels ready for them to be driven out to the community. The group have had an amazing start and are getting stuck in and making Cricket Green proud!

Careers Day 2021

Primary had a fantastic couple of days focusing on three key areas; construction, refuse and recycling and catering. Red Class was transformed into a café, Green Class was revamped into a refuse and recycling centre and Yellow Class became a construction site!

Blue, Orange, Purple and Indigo classes explored being a firefighter!

Pupils learnt about the work of firefighters before the fire drill unexpectedly went off and pupils had to work together to fill huge buckets with water and carry them over to put the fire out! The problem solving and teamwork was very impressive!

Year 7 had a fantastic week looking at 3 different jobs over 3 days.

Emerald Class put together Ikea boxes following the instructions, Sapphire class became a catering team, taking orders, shopping, making food and delivering it, and Diamond class painted the sensory garden fence and a variety of furniture!

Over the week in Year 8 & 9 pupils learnt about working in a charity shop, recycling centre, gym, office and café.

 

There were many activities throughout the week such as gardening, sorting clothes into categories, folding clothes, hanging clothes on rails, learning the journey our recycling makes from our door steps to the recycling centre, and how to sort recyclable rubbish into different categories such as paper, metals and plastics.
