Students in the Sixth Form have been using the sewing machines to create useful items such as face masks and scrunchies and have enjoyed making Christmas decorations to hang on the tree.
Adam in the Sixth Form has organised a project to collect donations for the Bearded Fishermen, a local Gainsborough Mental Health Charity. He presented the donations and the Sixth Form will take this on as their chosen charity to raise funds through their enterprise work. This was done as part of Adam's development of employability skills as he prepares to move on and seek employment.

09.12.20 - We started the day with a Zoom Carol Service before we had a visit from a very special person. Father Christmas came to school on his sleigh with his reindeer and elf to deliver the selection boxes kindly donated to us by Noble Foods.
All the students have been learning about the Pilgrim Fathers and their journey to America aboard the Mayflower 400 years ago. To commemorate this historical event, each class has joined in the national celebrations by making and designing their Illuminate Lanterns.

HAPPY HARVEST FESTIVAL 2020
Although this year has been very different the staff and students at Aegir still celebrated Harvest.
We were treated to a parade by some very interesting vintage, classic and new tractors. We also decorated the school with Scarecrows and Harvest wreaths created by our students.
A huge Thank You to everyone who contributed to our Harvest donation to the Salvation Army.
19.03.20 - Easter has come a little bit early this year - thanks to Noble Foods for bringing us these lovely Easter Eggs to enjoy!!
On Tuesday 3rd March 2020 Jasmine represented Aegir - A Specialist Academy at the Lincoln Music and Drama Festival 2020 - the first time a student from Aegir has entered the event. Jasmine was entered for two poetry classes: Up to Y9 Light Verse Speaking and Up to Y9 Verse Speaking. Jasmine learned both poems by heart 'Visit to a Graveyard' by Eric Finney which was 8 verses long and 'Old Man Platypus' by A.B. (Banjo) Patterson - 5 verses long. Jasmine was placed third in the Verse Speaking Class which was a tremendous result!
Aegir Scouts go camping in the cold!
On the 5th February, 4th Gainsborough, 1st Mayflower Academy Scout group went to Laughterton campsite to stay over.
When we arrived we pitched our tents and set up our beds. We then played football and board games.
We had pizza and chips for tea and Mrs Buxton came to visit.
We then had a campfire and sang songs and toasted marshmallows. We kept doing that until most of us were really tired and went to sleep.
The next day it was cold and there was frost on the tents.
We had sausage sandwiches and cereal for breakfast. We played some games and sat around the fire.
We walked to the river Trent and practised map reading skills. We enjoyed breaking the ice on the puddles.
We then packed away the tents, tidied up, loaded the bus and went back to school.
The Scouts really enjoyed the camp, here is what they thought:
“It was cold, but it was worth it for the experience”
“I was really happy”
“It was good”
“Fun and Freezing”.

One of our Year 11s has created, made and laminated certificates in preparation for the Football Tournament we are hosting on Friday 7th February. What a superb example of our school values!
Scouts enjoyed their first night away this year on Wednesday 5th February, supported by the amazing staff team. It was cold but they were all in good spirits, displaying the school values brilliantly and looked forward to toasting marshmallows around the campfire.
On Monday 3rd February 11GJ went on an intrepid journey… to the National Space Centre at Leicester. The visit supported learning of our ASDAN Science topic ‘Space Physics’. We had a great day, learning about how the universe came into being, the importance of space travel and how mankind explores our solar system. We recommend a visit, also, the café sells lovely coffee and amazing jacket potatoes.
A huge thank you to our friends at Noble foods who have donated a selection box for every child in the school on Thursday 19th December.
