Academy Newsletter Edition 17, May 2012

Message from the Academy Principal, Mr R C Evans Welcome to the latest edition of The Ridings‟ Federation Winterbourne International Academy Newsletter. End of Term 6 Arrangements The Academy will close at 1.20pm on Wednesday 18th July 2012. It will be a Non-Uniform Day with the students making a donation to their chosen charities. Thursday 19th July 2012 is an INSET Day The Academy will reopen for all students on Tuesday, 4th September 2012 – this will be Week 1. It has been an extremely difficult and demanding Term 5 to date. On 26th April we learnt of the tragic death of Megan Eyers, one of our Sixth Form students. Megan was a delightful, hardworking and intelligent student, and I am sure that all parents/carers will join the Academy in offering their thoughts and support to Megan‟s family and friends, especially Mr and Mrs Eyers and Megan‟s two sisters, at this desperately sad time. Megan‟s funeral was held at Westerleigh Crematorium on Thursday, 10th May 2012. Parents/carers will also be aware that the Academy received notification of its Section 5 Ofsted Inspection on 26th and 27th April 2012. The Inspection Team completed their activities on 26th April but the second day was postponed. We are anticipating the second day being rescheduled before the end of Term 5, after which the inspection report will be distributed to all parents/carers. Could I take this opportunity to thank all parents/carers who completed and returned the questionnaires for Ofsted. I am delighted to inform all parents/carers that BAM have been appointed as the preferred bidder for the Academy‟s Capital Investment Programme. During the period 1st-4th May there was an extensive programme of consultation meetings including members of the Academy community and the wider community. A presentation has been placed on the Academy‟s website which outlines in detail what the Academy will look like when the project is completed, together with details of the building process including the phasing. We currently expect the works to commence in Summer 2012 (subject to planning consent) with the buildings completed in Summer 2014, and the external landscaping finalised in Autumn 2014. During the build there will be some necessary changes to current procedures, eg students and staff entry/exit points, movement within the site. Full details of these changes will be provided well in advance. I am sure that you will join me in looking forward to the completion of the new build when both the students and staff will finally have the learning environment that they deserve. Again this year, a number of presentation evenings are planned: Years 7 and 8 Presentation Evening – Monday 2nd July 2012, 7.00pm, Main Hall. Years 9 and 10 Presentation Evening – Monday 9th July 2012, 7.00pm, Main Hall. Year 13 Presentation Evening – Wednesday 5th September 2012, 7.00pm, Aztec Hotel and Spa Year 11 Presentation Evening – Thursday 22nd November 2012, 7.00pm, Wills Memorial Building, University of Bristol

Kapil Agarwal – Congratulations to Year 11 student Kapil who was recently invited to a presentation at Buckingham Palace with Princess Anne. Kapil was receiving the Grand Prior Award, an award which requires considerable commitment over a substantial period of time. Kapil is also heavily involved as a Cadet with the Central Ambulance Service and wishes to pursue a future career in medicine. Jess Hopton – Jess has been invited to carry the Olympic Torch during its journey across the UK. This is a tremendous honour for Jess and we are thrilled that one of our students will be involved in what is a truly global event. Guinan Williams-McCarthy – Guinan won an iPod at the Ambitions Event held on 1st March 2012. It was also pleasing to hear of a successful visit to Kelbra by the Frampton Cotterell and District Twinning Association. Sixteen students, together with Ms Turner, took part in the visit and we look forward to further participation in Twinning Events in the future. Finally may I wish all students sitting external examinations the very best, and we look forward to another excellent set of results with students successfully moving on to the next stage of their education or into the world of work.

FRAMPTON COTTERELL AND DISTRICT TWINNING ASSOCIATION VISIT TO KELBRA From 29th March to 5th April 2012 a group of 16 Winterbourne International Academy students, accompanied by Miss Turner, scout leaders and a group of Twinning Association members, visited Kelbra in Germany. The group of students consisted of Year 10 German students who stayed with local families as well as several scouts who stayed in a local hostel. During their time in Kelbra, the students had the opportunity to visit several local towns, a chocolate factory, a university, a church (containing an organ once owned by J S Bach), and even a rose garden with the largest collection of roses in Europe. In addition to this, some students even went to the cinema to watch a film in German! Mrs Jenny Rowan from the Twinning Association said “Everyone got on really well together and all the adults commented on what great young people we had with us. They were a credit to themselves, their families, their Academy and their community.” This is wonderful feedback, well done to all involved! BBC SCHOOL NEWS REPORT 2012 Several students from Winterbourne International Academy took part in BBC School News Report event on Thursday 15th March 2012. The goal of this off-curriculum day was for the students to learn about the world of journalism. They worked hard all day to produce a high-quality newscast that is now online http://www.trfwia.org.uk/index.php/international-main/bbc-school-report-2012 Ollie, one of the students taking part, said “I really enjoyed the whole day; it was engaging and helped me to understand how the world of journalism really works. It gives us experience of working under pressure, which will be very useful later on in life.” In addition to this, Alisha said, “I have enjoyed the BBC school report because it was fun and I learnt a lot of things, I really enjoyed the whole experience!” Laura agreed but added “it was interesting to be able to research different new stories, and then present them in your own way!” NATIONAL CAREERS SERVICE As part of the Academy‟s duty to provide impartial careers information, advice and guidance we wish to make students and their parents/carers aware of the new National Careers Service website and phoneline which the Government has recently launched.

Musical Theatre Singing (Merit) Many of the Winterbourne International Academy students are performing exceptionally well when representing the Academy or performing independently in their chosen sport. They are really putting the Academy on the sporting map at a national level, and deserve recognition and congratulations.

FOOTBALL The school football season is about to end for this year and I am happy to report that all Years have done very well this season. Each Year group managed to chalk up a number of wins against other schools in the South Gloucestershire and Bristol Cup Competition. The Year 9 team and the Year 11 team both made it to the finals of the cup, to be played at The Frys Club in Keynsham on Thursday 17th May 2012. We wish them all the best for those games and congratulate them on the outstanding achievement of reaching the final. Over 32 schools take part in the competition from each Year group, so to have two different years represent the Academy in the final is exceptional. NETBALL Netball continues to be a success with all Years continuing to do well in an on-going fixture list.

ATHLETICS AND CRICKET The cricket and athletics season is about to begin but is currently being hampered by the poor weather. There will be more to report on this next time when we have played in fixtures.

INTERNATIONAL YEAR 7 GLOBAL EYES PROJECT During terms 3 and 4, our Year 7 students received a series of „Global Eyes‟ workshops delivered by the Bristol-based charity African Initiatives, which involved looking at the stereotypes of African people in many of today‟s media. The students themselves were asked to think of areas of African culture they wanted to understand better, and the charity created three bespoke lessons that addressed their interests.

Following the success of these workshops the charity invited students from participating schools along for a celebration to mark the end of the Global Eyes project in Broadmead Baptist Church on Union Street. On Friday 30th March a total of 33 Year 7 students opted out of the dress-down day and represented Winterbourne International Academy in full uniform and in fine style at the event. Activities on the day ranged between film-making, journalism and creating campaigns using social media. The feedback from students was overwhelmingly positive, with favourite elements of the day including the film-making and creative activities. For more information, visit www.african-initiatives.org.uk.

YEAR 9 CLIMATE WEEK EVENT WITH YATE INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY - 12TH MARCH 2012 As part of the launch of Climate Week 2012 a group of Year 9 Winterbourne International Academy students travelled to Yate International Academy. The day involved a challenge that was itself shrouded in mystery and was kept secret until it was unveiled nationwide at 9am that Monday morning. The challenge was revealed to be to “Green Your Space – Develop an idea to change a place you know, to make it better for the environment.” All students involved from both Academies really threw themselves into the task and the variety of locations tackled and ideas for this redevelopment was fantastic. 7


Several areas around Yate and Winterbourne were earmarked for redevelopment and it was encouraging to see how proud students were of the areas in which they meet their friends and identify with. Many of the Federation‟s Year 9 students were making good cases for allocating funds in a sustainable way that would benefit a broad section of the local community. Some students planned to develop the „Oxbow‟ fields nearby, whereas others planned an enterprise for the Academy where roof space was used to cultivate honey and vegetables for farmers markets! Some groups were inevitably drawn to the wackier end of the environmental spectrum and we even saw the proposal of pedal powered buses, recycled fashion and solar-powered hats. Despite some projects favouring imagination over practicality, it was heartening to see the genuine dedication that our young learners were putting into a problem that they recognised would have a wider impact on the community and not just themselves. Whatever the solution to the „Green Your Space‟ was, it was rooted in a passion for the environment and willingness to improve it. The winner across the Federation was judged by Yate International Academy Principal Mr. Gilbert, who was looking for good concepts as well as a professional delivery that really fitted the design brief. Top honours went to a Yate International Academy team that thought the new Cabot Circus Development in Bristol needed the „Green‟ touch. They developed a series of features which took advantage of the huge number of visitors each day, designing moveable paving stones which created friction as shoppers walked around. They also invented „Energy Boxes‟ which could be attached to the bikes of people who cycle around the area. The winners from Winterbourne International Academy were those with a vision for the „Oxbow‟ fields becoming a cycle-friendly youth centre created from local materials and recycled products. The Year 9 Winterbourne International Academy students who participated in the Climate week challenge were: Shannon Ashford, Rebecca Barnes, Peter Brooks, Harry Bryant, Biel Casey, Chelsea Davies, Alena Davis, Lewis Ford, Harriet Gillard, Natalia Golebiowska, Jonathan Gunn, Sophie Hale, Max Hatton, Rachel Hickey, Charley Hicks, Callum Jewell, Alistair Mitchell, Chloe Potter, Charlotte Ross, Xinyu Shen, Georgia Stowell, Jack Thomson, Jack Walker and Alex Westcott. A special mention goes out to the three boys who chose to cycle to Yate International Academy to give our trip extra green credentials. Well done lads!

We hope we were able to contribute to your language learning and that you might be able to travel the world and develop your language skills in the years to come. We shall be leaving soon, and we will definitely miss you all! We have enjoyed every bit of our time here – teaching, planning, sharing with the other members of staff, and learning from them. But after every sad story something good follows, and we have some happy news - Lauréna will be staying another year with you – so A l´année prochaine! Thank you ever so much for a lovely time! Noemi, Lauréna and Esther

...One of our specialisms!

TEAM MATHS CHALLENGE FINAL On Tuesday 24th April 2012 a team of four students from Years 10 and 11 travelled to Exeter University to represent South Gloucestershire and the Academy in the South West final of the Team Maths Challenge. The competition was tough and our students did very well in rounds including memorising „medieval Lincolnshire‟ numbers and then answering questions using these numbers. A good time was had by all. Congratulations to Jake Hawker, Chris Shine, Kapil Agarwal and Scott Rose.

INTERMEDIATE MATHS CHALLENGE – 2ND ROUND Following the success of a number of our students in the first round of the Intermediate Maths Challenge, Anya Appoo, Marko Dogramadzi, Emma Hazelwood, Bruce Kalaiti, Scott Rose, Joe Parker, Chris Shine, Daniel Sims, Richard Lam and Xinyu Shen all sat second round papers of varying levels of difficulty. Chris and Xinyu sat the hardest papers and received a certificate of Merit and a certificate of Distinction respectively. Xinyu also gained a medal and book prize as a result of finishing in the top 50 Year 9 students in the country – an outstanding achievement! Well done to all who qualified for the second round papers.

POLITICS STUDENTS TRIP TO PARLIAMENT – WEDNESDAY 18TH APRIL 2012 On Wednesday 18th April 2012, a group of Politics students from Winterbourne International Academy, accompanied by Mr Keel and Miss Mooney, visited the Houses of Parliament in London. They were given a guided tour by Lord Harrison of Chester (who also happens to be Miss Mooney‟s Uncle) and had the opportunity to meet Lord Speaker before watching a debate in the Commons. All of the students enjoyed the day!

PYRAMID SCHEME Bristol Pyramid scheme organises after school activity clubs for primary school children who are selected because they are felt to have low self esteem and lack confidence. Volunteer leaders run the club and hold review meetings with staff to discuss the children's development and progress. Ten children, aged 7 and 8, will be offered membership of a Pyramid Club. The club, run by selected, trained and policechecked volunteers, runs once a week for 10 weeks, for 1.5 hours after the Academy day. After being inspired by an assembly about the Pyramid Scheme, we decided to apply in order to partake in the scheme. During our 4 weeks of training we learnt about safeguarding children, stages of group development and the importance of self-esteem building games, amongst many other things. Each session begins and ends with a „circle time‟ which is beneficial for the children as it enables them to speak about their feelings and emotions. The children then participate in a variety or games and activities such as parachute games, arts and crafts, and many more. The children are given many opportunities to participate in new experiences, for example, making smoothies, decorating pizzas and creating personal t-shirts. These enable the children to overcome their fears about trying new things and encourage them to make friends with their peers. By Lucy Allinson and Emily Norman On behalf of the Year 12 Pyramid Scheme volunteers

EARTHFALL It is not every day in the life of a 14 year old Year 10 student that you get to work with one of the UK‟s leading dance and physical theatre companies - but here at Winterbourne International Academy, 35 of our students did just that in a week‟s residency with Earthfall. Based in Cardiff, Earthfall visit our Academy‟s Arts Centre once a year to work with students from Year 10 in a week long residency comprising of new techniques which culminate into a non-stop performance. Year 9 students also got the opportunity to work with the group making up the live band accompanying the action. This year‟s theme was Chelsea Hotel (New York City) and Jessica Cohen (Artistic Director) stated that they thought the group were fantastic. YOUNG BANDS NIGHT RETURNS- THURSDAY 17TH MAY 2012 Tickets are on sale now at break and lunch times in the Arts Centre office: £4 in Advance or £5 on the Night.
