Tassomai for Science work

All students at SMCC with internet access should now be using Tassomai for Science work. If you as a parent would like a weekly progress report emailed to you, then please email Mrs Twyble (htwyble@smcc.devon.sch.uk) with your child’s name and your email address. If you do that, you will have access to the Tassomai Tree, a new way of checking progress.
A video explanation is below. Tassomai can be done on any device.

Student of the week

Mr Lewis met with Josh and family this week (via Microsoft TEAMs) to present the Student of the Week accolade.

Since being on lockdown Josh has not only conscientiously attempted to keep up with his set, core school work and actively helped in raising and saying goodbye to a litter of 12 puppies, he also really stepped up last week while his dad was in hospital for 3 nights (NOT covid related). He did more jobs around the house than usual, helped prepare and cook meals, walked the dog and really supported mum around the house, in a time when they were all more anxious than usual. He even helped his little sister find a lost necklace when she was upset.

He has shown great resilience, maturity, understanding and kindness.

Well done Josh

Principal’s Prize winners

Some things must continue during lockdown and one of those is our Termly Principal’s Prize. Normally the winning students get to choose from a selection of family days out Crealy, Exeter Chiefs, Highbullen pamper package or similar, but this time they get a £50 Amazon voucher to spend.
Well done everyone, your certificates will be presented when we are back in school.
