STEM visit to Heatrae Sadia

Year 10 pupils with an interest in a future in engineering had the opportunity to gain a valuable insights ‘the behind the scenes’ at engineering company Heatrae Sadia before half term. The pupils took part in two small group sessions with engineers and designers who were happy to answer their questions about their qualifications, their work, life as an engineer and what goes on in the company. They also had an interesting tour around the factory and were able to see all the different machines and processes involved in manufacture. Thank you to Heatrae Sadia for hosting and to NEACO for assistance in funding this trip.

Berlin trip December 2017

On 14 December 2017 Lynn Grove pupils and staff travelled to Berlin for a cultural visit. After 5 action packed days in our group of 22 returned with exciting tales of tell. They all had a great time and made the most of having spent time in one of Europe’s major cities. The trip allowed them to appreciate the city’s rich history and diverse culture. The pupils were a credit to our school wherever they went, be it to take in the sights or traverse the city on public transport. We were especially proud that they all took opportunity whenever their German skills were required.

A highlight of the visit was the delicious lunch cooked and served by year 7 pupils who devised a menu to showcase the skills they have developed in the most recent cookery lessons. Thank you Mr Jordan for coming to visit us!

GCSE certificates delayed

Urgent message for our leavers 2017 – unfortunately we will not be able to give out exam certificates on Thursday 9th or Friday 10th November as previously published. This is due to a printing error affecting GCSE certificates for all pupils that we are in the process of correcting with exam boards. As soon as we have the reprinted certificates we will contact our 2017 leavers with a new collection time.

GCSE certificate collections

Calling all pupils in the exceptional Lynn Grove Academy class of 2017 – It’s time to collect your GCSE Certificates. You will need these certificates in the future so be sure to come and collect them and then keep them very safely somewhere.

Key Concept Day: Structure

Year 7 pupils had a special treat on Tuesday, 3 October, as they were taking part in the very first LGA Creative Education Trust Key Concept Day. The aim of the Key Concept days is to introduce children to the foundations of our understanding of the world. This time we looked at structure and were expertly guided by CET Programmes Director Emily Campbell and Programme Manager Kate Ward, along with guest designer Samuel Wilkinson. The pupils had a great time converting 2d shapes to 3d and making models. The next Key Concept Day which will focus on pattern will take place in November.

Geography field trip inspiring students

Our geography students went on their field trip to Southwold this week, 27 and 29 September 2017. They looked at evidence of coastal erosion, taking measurements and notes to use in their class work over the course of this academic year. Mr Childs reported that the pupils had a great time and were a credit to our school. Well done! Thanks for the Geography department for organising this stimulating outing.
