Sports Day a great success

There is always a lot going on towards the end of the summer term, and this year was no different. One calendar item stands out though – Sports Day. Following on from the great day we had last year our PE department pulled out all the stops and organised a wonderful day of activities and fun for the whole school community. Even though the introduction of our new colleges was only days before it was wonderful to see how pupils and staff came together supporting each other and enjoying the day together with their fellow college members including our leavers who came in to help. The weather was perfect and rain held off until the last minute. A great big thank you to the PE staff for organising another successful Sports Day.

Ex Lynn Grover inspires pupils

It’s always nice for us to find out how ex Lynn Grovers are getting on once the have left. Lottie Gray, who we remember for her love of language and music, is building a career as a singer-songwriter whilst studying at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. She recently participated as a judge in a Trust Primary Poetry Prize competition after being in touch via our alumni network. It is lovely to see that Lottie wants to inspire young people and speaks positively to them about her education both at Woodlands and Lynn Grove.

Athletics success

On Wednesday, 21 June 2023, the great day had come. After months of training and individual year events the the District Athletics Championship Final was here. An like in the previous events it was the inspiring combination of great individual performances and excellent team spirit that buoyed everyone along and let them dig that little bit deeper. As a result the Lynn Grove athletics team took away first place with a significant lead of the runner-ups.

Congratulations from all at Lynn Grove to the students and the PE team along with everyone else who helped along the way.

Our Art department is pleased to invite you to our annual Art Show on Wednesday, 5 July 2023, 4.30 – 6.30pm. Students are encouraged to bring along friends and family and enjoy the wonderful work our Art students have produced. Our Art department is looking forward to welcoming you.

More Athletics Success

After the brilliant start of our Year 10 athletics team it was the turn of our Year 9, 8 and 7 teams over the past 2 weeks.

The Year 9s had their event on Thursday, 25 May 2023. They did incredibly well and overachieved across the whole event, finishing in a brilliant second place.

Year 8 went to face their opponents on a cold evening on 6 June 2023. They did very well with some outstanding individual performances and came third overall.

Finally, the Year 7 team were on this Thursday, 8 June 2023. Showing a lot of resilience they put in a huge performance and finished joined second.

Our PE staff would like to point out how proud they are of our pupils who worked together as teams incredibly well, always supporting each other and showing great spirit and determination. Some of them surprised themselves with what they were able to achieve and are now keen to get stuck in and work hard on their performances. There are 2 weeks left until this year’s Athletics finals on Wednesday, 21 June, and all the Lynn Grove teams are in a good place to do well on the day. Good luck to all!

Rewards Lounge news

Our school’s Rewards Lounge just got another upgrade! Along with the games, chess, connect4 and x-box, new cushions and furnishings have arrived, all based on pupil feedback. We value our pupil voice, so stay tuned for regular improvements.

Year 9s get to grips with garden

We all know that getting out in the fresh air and doing something active is great for keeping your spirits up.  What is more there is increasing evidence that gardening can have a really positive influence on everyone’s mental health, including young people.  We were very excited therefore when a group of year 9 pupils took the option to follow a short course in gardening this summer term.  They have a great project to get on with too.  Sadly, our pupil garden has got a bit over grown of late, so the year 9 team are determined to knock it back into shape so that more young gardeners can take advantage of the space.  A great project – putting back into our community while learning and having fun!
