Y6 - Maths and English G&T Sessions

On Tuesday the Academy played host to nearly 100 pupils from our local Primary Schools as they took part in our Y6 deeper learning Maths and English event! Pupils worked together in mixed teams, building their Maths and English skills, and learning to work in teams to agree and confer on their final answers.
Maths was first up and had the pupils thinking amount simultaneous equations and rounding up before lunch with a few rounds of Countdown. After lunch, the pupils were challenged in their ability to explore the connotation and denotations of words and completed the day with an extended piece of creative writing.
There were lots of spot prizes up for grabs and the overall winners of both sessions went home with board games. Well done to all involved!
All pupils had a fabulous day working alongside current Y10 students who led individual tables throughout the event. Thank you to Wold Academy, Newington Academy, Chiltern primary School, Adelaide Primary School, Rokeby Primary School and Anlaby Acre Heads Primary School for your continued support. We look forward to seeing you all soon!

Y6 Virtual Open Night - Transition Update

Due to the current restrictions that we all face we are unable to host our annual Open Night for prospective pupils and their parents/carers. We acknowledge the important decision that you all are set to make in selecting your preference for secondary education in 2021 and are keen for that decision to be an informed one.

Thus, we are hosting a Virtual Open Night on Thursday 8th October 2020 for all pupils that are considering Sirius Academy West as their destination for September 2021. The evening will feature the premiere of our own short film and also provide additional links to other informative videos. These will include introductions to key staff, testimonials from current students, overviews of the varied subjects and courses available at the academy, and an all access tour following a current student during an academy day.

The event will also promote the academy’s thorough transition programme that seeks to remove barriers to movement from Year 6 to Year 7 and allow all pupils to thrive on arrival. Despite the enforced closure in March, many pupils in our local Primary Schools have already started this journey with themed visits to the academy in Year 5. 

The academy has been heavily oversubscribed for places within Year 7 in recent years and we expect this to be repeated again this year. We encourage pupils and parents to not miss out!

For any additional information regarding the event, and/or details regarding the transition process, please contact Mr Gordon on (01482) 352939. All of the Year 6 pupils in our local Primary Schools will soon receive individual invites to their evening.
