Snap, Crackle, POP… #parenthub

Snap, Crackle, POP…

Our Year 9 Create Pathway group have made an amazing start to their GCSE Art coursework with the topic of Pop Art.

By researching different artists work our pupils have really got an understanding of what Pop Art is. They began to create work in the style of famous Artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Wayne Thiebaud. Pupils are now painting things of interest to them in the style of their chosen artist such as Batman, the Avengers, sweets and Doctor Who. Pupils have tried a range of media including water colour, acrylics, oil pastels and they are now beginning work with textiles such as batik, fabric painting and applique.

I think you'll all agree their work is great! Well done Year 9!

Operation Santa III #parenthub

For the third year running Dudley CVS ( ) have given Sutton School students a magical Christmas and a huge smile on their faces. Staff from Sutton School picked up a huge selection of gifts for pupils at our school. The organisation has been running for many years and with the help of businesses have collected donations to distribute to local causes and put smiles on children's faces across the borough.

Today each student from Sutton School had the chance to meet with Santa choose a present from a big selection of donated gifts. Mr Charles headteacher, the staff and pupils are overwhelmed with the generosity which they have once again received from Dudley CVS and Operation Santa.

There were Christmas decorations, craft stalls, tombolas, a raffle and even Christmas games. Father Christmas also visited the Christmas Fayre in the evening where parents and students could visit him in his fabulous grotto which was created by the amazing Ms Charles-Drake.

Maths Whizz Winter Adventure #parenthub


Keeping children constructively entertained over the festive season can be tough. Every year the Whizz Winter Adventure helps children continue making progress on their learning journeys between their busy present-opening schedules!

All Math-Whizz students will have access to this year’s Winter Adventure from December 15 2014 (as long as they have completed their initial assessment). As a fun form of learning loss prevention, it’s more than a great way to keep your child entertained throughout the festive season – it also gives them an advantage when they return to school.

The Whizz Winter Adventure contains 12 festive themed activities: 6 are game-style activities and 6 ‘Around the World’ festivities quizzes.

During the Winter Adventure, your child will receive a special star for every 30 credits they earn. These stars can be redeemed in order to progress through the Winter Adventure – each activity requires two stars and each quiz requires one. Each time an activity is completed, a puzzle piece of a special winter scene is unlocked. Once every puzzle piece is revealed, the scene comes alive!

Make sure your child completes the activities and quizzes before January 6 2015 in order to unveil the special Christmas scene.

Log in or subscribe to make sure your child's math education stays on track this winter!
