We are delighted to share that today we witnessed the 'hatching' of four chicks in our Academy incubator.
The Academy took receipt of twelve fertile chicken eggs on Monday and an incubator; and we are now the proud parents of four fluffy chicks. There are eight eggs still left to hatch and we will keep students, staff and parents posted about their progress. Students and staff have been able to share in the 'hatchings' through live images being streamed to cameras around the Academy and visits to the incubator by students in science lessons.
Our science department have incorporated the 'chick developments' into science lessons and our students have enjoyed watching the chicks hatch and develop in the first hours of their fluffy lives.

Twickenham 9th March - England get a win and Jonathan Turner makes us proud at Outwood Academy Adwick. As part of the RBS Six Nations Championship England played Wales at Twickenham on Sunday 9th March. As a member of the 84,000 strong crowd I was not only thrilled to see England win, but also see Jonathan Turner, our Year 9 rugby captain sing the national anthem with opera singer Laura Wright just prior to kick off.
The Mathematics Department is thrilled to share the results of the Intermediate UK Maths Challenge; and Ross Waddoups has secured a place in the top 3,000 pupils in the whole country and will now be sitting the Grey Kangaroo test on the 20th March 2014. We wish him all the best and will keep you posted.

This week the assemblies are being delivered by Sixth Form Student Voice Ambassadors. As well as updating students and staff about ongoing projects and their roles and responsibilities in these assemblies the ambassadors are launching a very exciting new initiative called Random Act of Kindness Week. The aim is to make us all think about how we can be kinder towards each other by performing acts of kindness and supports Mrs Blundell's wish that "everyone should feel safe and happy to come to school".
