MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Welcome back to the second half of the summer term. We thought we'd show you some more examples of the work that Lord Grey Academy students have been doing over the last couple of weeks. It is inspiring to see what has been achieved.
Jim Parker, Principal.
Great Work, during lockdown!
DRUMMING FOR THE NHS, what an inspiration.
In the last newsletter we reported about OLLIE an Air Cadet at 2366 Bletchley Park Squadron who is our amazing fundraiser. Here he is in action drumming for the NHS on a recent Thursday evening. We are all very proud of you Ollie, you have brought happiness to so many through your talent and generosity.
Below is Ollie's Facebook page showing his tenaciousness and also his Just for Giving Page. Keep it up and let's hope you reach your goal of £1,000 and make your wishes happen for our doctors and nurses in the NHS. Absolutely incredible. #lordgreycan!
At the time of going to print Ollie has reached and surpassed his goal of £1,000. Many congratulations, a superb effort Ollie!
Ceejay's microbalance was beautifully and carefully made and so sensitive, she was able to measure the mass of a single cress seed. Great work. Mr Smith, Assistant Vice-Principal and Careers Leader
history and rs - celebrating work before lockdown
We are missing our lovely students in class and thought it would be a fabulous idea to celebrate all the hard work in HIstory and Religious Studies they all did before the lockdown. Miss Rafferty, Teacher of History & Religious Studies
... MORE GREAT ARTWORK!

great cooking like a french chef!
Before the half term holidays students had to complete various activities, and one was to cook a French recipe. Year 7 student Lewis, Enigma House cooked 'Almond Chicken' and it looks rather delicious! Well done Lewis. Mrs Sherwood, Teacher of French.
Using the television programme Taskmaster as inspiration, our Performing Arts staff have become the 'Taskmaster' each week and set a range of challenges to get our students problem solving, being creative and thinking outside the box. So far, tasks have included dramatic room entrances, finding the best objects that are bigger than their heads but smaller than a car, drawing a self portrait with their eyes closed, presenting news reports and going online to find the best gift for the Taskmaster. Before half term the students created shadow photographs and took extraordinary photos of ordinary things, and these are some of the best ones from the session.
The students have responded brilliantly to these tasks and we are looking forward to seeing how they approach the new tasks they are set in the coming weeks. Ms Edwards, Head of Performing Arts.
