film and media
Year 9 have been looking at the history of film and creating timelines, while our Year 10s have been experimenting with photography and image editing on their phones. I have been particularly impressed with the timelines from Aidan and Jogaile who have used a range of interesting images to illustrate each key event in film history. In Year 10, Ashton has taken a lovely range of images and played with colour and light to make them even more effective. His completed Rubix cube is a representation of victory and the watch and window suggests time passing. Ms Edwards, Head of Performing Arts
Whilst the weather was kind to us during the Easter holidays, sixteen students and myself transformed the Academy's memorial garden. Everyone worked tirelessly for two days and it now looks amazing. Lots of new bulbs and flowers were planted. A huge big thank you goes to the MK Council who gave £500 to help with this fantastic makeover. When we return to school, we will be opening a 'gardening club' and inviting representatives from MK Council to come and look at our garden face-lift. #lordgreycan! and they definitely did!

PSHE DAILY WELLBEING TASKS
Tasks are being sent via email by Mrs Palmieri, every school day and the aim is to help students [and other family members] to ‘power down’ from a day’s work, like we would do in tutor time! There is a range of activities: a video to watch, a quote of the day, a quiz, and something to do!
The work for Year 7 and Year 8 PSHE is being set by Mrs Palmieri and is being sent out on a weekly basis via email, to make sure that all students receive it. Most should also be able to access it through Google Classroom, but network limitations on GO 4 Schools means it may not be set on that platform. Year 7s completed their module on ‘Self-esteem & Positive relationships’ before Easter and below in the photo grid are some examples of the work .
Since Easter, students have been finding out about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the responsibilities which go along with those rights and with whom the responsibility lies.
Year 8 PSHE students completed their module on ‘Choices: Breaking the chain’ before Easter and here are some examples of the work.
Since 27 April our Year 8 PSHE focus is on Wellbeing and the first instalment was learning about the importance of sleep, which teenagers tend to know a lot about.
