And finally .....

This is Mac. He's in Year 10 and he is into music and Rubiks cube

Here we have Lewis and Hayden - both in Year 8

So there you are. You have now met the whole team from Outwood Academy Adwick. See you in the new year with all our exciting news as we move into our brand new building - as long as the Mayan prophecy doesn't come true.

Some more of the crew from England

Year 10 trio of girls - Charlotte, Jenny and Charlotte
More from England as Christmas approaches.
You have met our Emma and Megan. Here are the rest of us.

Here are Patrick and Jordan. Jordan is our VMG President
Our Y11s - Kayleigh and Georgina
This is Finlay or Fin - she is a Year 9

Look out for our next blog when we'll introduce the rest. We're really busy at the moment because we have been donating toys to children whose parents can't afford Christmas presents this year. We are also raising funds for Save the Children on our last day of term by wearing a Christmas jumper or by 'tinseling up' our uniforms. 
The Academy takes charity work and fundraising very seriously indeed.
For ourselves we hope to adopt a Cairngorm Reindeer this year - we adopted a lion from the Yorkshire Wildlife Park last year.

Greetings from the French team !

Hello ! Bonjour !
We are the French team for the school year 2012-2013 !
There are thirteen of us in our English class. We are in Year 10 at Collège Antoine Coysevox near Montmartre in the north of Paris. We are from France (Paris, Corsica, Brittany), but our families are also from England, the Ivory Coast, Congo, Guinea, Mexico, Morrocco, Algeria, Sri Lanka and Serbia. We are five girls called Victoria, Oumou, Jeanne, Emilia and Anna and eight boys called Vincent, Aniss, Joachim, Faysal, Georges, Thanushan, William and Charles. Our English teacher is Mrs Serdar and we are in our fourth year of English.
We have English on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday so three times a week. We also study Spanish, as a second language and seven of us take latin. English and Spanish are compulsory but latin is optional. In Year 7, students must choose between English or German and in Year 9 we must choose a second language (Spanish, German or English). There are twenty-eight pupils in our class but fifteen students study German as a first language and English as a second language with another teacher.
Our school is not very big. It has about five hundred students. It has two buildings, two playgrounds, a canteen and a gymnasium. Seven of us have lunch at the canteen (we don't find the food very good) and the others eat at home. We have an hour and a half for lunch.

A view from one of the buildings onto the other building and one of the playgrounds :

Our English classroom is on the second floor.

We start at half past eight every day except on Monday and the students who study latin finish at five pm every day except on Wednesdays.

Here is our timetable :

Bye for now ! Write soon !
