Hayle October Menu 2019

Each week a different event, celebration or commemoration is studied and discussed in tutor time as part of the Global Values curriculum. This gives students the opportunity to reflect upon current affairs, historical events and national and international campaigns.

Pease note, if world, national or local events take place that we feel may impact upon the students, the schedule may be adjusted throughout the year.

At Hayle Academy, we encourage our students to take an active role in their local community and pursue hobbies and interests outside of school. This term we want to celebrate the following Academy students:

MUSIC  – ONE MAN BAND- JOSH AKA JOSH KNUCKLES AT ST IVES SEPTEMBER FESTIVAL

In September while walking around St Ives, Mrs Tranter, Head of Creative Arts Faculty at Hayle Academy, heard what she thought was a live band playing in the entrance at the Tate gallery.  She approached to find a very talented drummer playing on his own as part of the St Ives September Festival.  “I realised after listening and watching for a while that it was Josh in Year 9 at Hayle Academy,   I was very impressed as Josh was also helping to raise donations for charity.  Well done Josh.”

SPORT  –  COUNTY LEVEL, ELLIS YEAR  7
Ellis plays cricket for St Just Youth who this month, became Under 11 County Champions, scoring 199 runs, defeating Lanhydrock in the final. Ellis was 25 not out, had a wicket and took a catch. Very well done!

SHOOTING STAR – VICTOR YEAR 11
Last month, Victor in Year 11, learned to shoot a rifle similar to those used by the British army, for the first time.  This month he’s become the best shot in the whole South West England.

After 2 gruelling days, competing at the Annual Regional Competition between Cornwall Devon, Somerset, Gloucestershire, and Wiltshire, we asked about his experience:
“On the first  day I was a little worried as I didn’t know how good the competition was going to be.  But once I started shooting, it was clear to see that the other teams had not practised as much as they should have”.

Cornwall’s A, B and C team came 1st 2nd and 3rd on both days and were overall Champions with A,B, and C teams coming 1st 2nd & 3rd.

The next fixture will be a national competition in the October half term, involving cadet teams across, Air, Sea, Marine and Army. Good Luck Victor.

SPORT – MORGAN YEAR 9

After competing in rowing trials held in Fowey, against tough competition from across Cornwall, Morgan has been picked to row for the Cornwall under 15s team in the pilot Gig county championships. Morgan will be representing both Hayle Pilot Gig Club and Hayle Academy in the County squad in a competition held on 12th of October. We are crossing everything for you.

Alongside rowing, Morgan also took part in a Brass band competition as part of Lanner Brass Academy, with fellow students William Year 9, and Lowenna, Year 7 as part of the Lanner Brass Academy.

Three very talented Hayle Academy students took part in a brass band competition last weekend Morgan Year 9 William Year 9 and Lowenna Year 7 as part of Lanner Brass Academy.

The competition, held in Exmouth, had 12 bands competing. They not only won their section but won the most entertaining band of the day for both their performance inside the pavilions and one for outside in the gardens.

Lowenna played a horn solo and Morgan was part of a cornet fanfare and also played a glockenspiel solo with Lowenna and William playing Djembe drums in the finale.

Well done to all our students, and we are really PROUD of you and your achievements.

Study skills and revision aids are a vital part of the preparation for the summer public exams. This support will help our students perform at their very best when it really matters.

We wish to invite you to attend an important Year 11 Supporting Success evening for students and their parents/carers, taking place on Thursday, 3rd October from 6pm until 7.30 pm.  At a critical time, this will be an invaluable opportunity for you to informally discuss your child’s progress and consider ways you can help your child to revise for their GCSE exams, with a particular focus on maths, English, science, and humanities. The evening will include subject-based workshops led by our Heads of Faculty.

In addition, we appreciate that during the exam periods, some Year 11s find revision emotionally and practically challenging. With this in mind, we are fortunate to have been able to engage a speaker, Dr Martijn van der Spoel, to talk to parents about supporting effective learning on the same evening. Dr. van der Spoel is a chartered psychologist, who specialises in using the mind as an effective tool for life learning. He will work with students throughout the day about how they can learn to balance focus, motivation and study behaviour and then in the evening he will talk about ways in which parents can guide and support this through creative and constructive guidance. The presentation has a significant, but accessible, emphasis on the psychology behind the strategies of learning. Both students and parents should leave the sessions not only with the “how” but also with the “why” of effective learning.

At the evening you will be provided with:

  • Practical advice and guidance on how to support your child as the GCSE exams fast approach.
  • A personalised revision pack of materials, resources and homework revision tasks to take away to support revision at home.
  • Information on how to use our revision apps.
  • An overview of what after-school support sessions are available per subject.
  • Opportunities for you to ask questions and to look at the expectations of the exams by reviewing past papers.

You have the opportunity to book onto the revision workshops applicable to your son/daughter via our online booking system. Each workshop will last for approximately twenty minutes and will be delivered a number of times throughout the evening.

Workshops in advance and the booking system will remain open until midday on Thursday 3rd October.

Please visit https://hayleacademy.parentseveningsystem.co.uk to book your workshops or there is a link from the school website www.hayleacademy.net. Login with the following information: Student’s First Name, Student’s Surname: Date of Birth

If you do not have access to the internet, please contact the school office who will be happy to book workshops on your behalf. Alternatively, your son/daughter will be able to make appointments with Mrs Lock.

We look forward to seeing you at this highly beneficial revision support evening so that we can continue to work together to help to ensure the best possible results for your son/ daughter in the forthcoming GCSE exams.
