SETTING UP YOUR TASSOMAI ACCOUNT

  1. Get your parents to pay for this on Parent Pay.
  2. Log onto Tassomai.com2Q
  3. Click ‘sign in’.
  4. Click ‘register with a code’.
  5. The code for the school is X77N835A. Use only when setting up an account for the first time.
  6. Set yourself up an account using your name as it appears on Parent Pay, your school email, a simple password and your Science group where it asks for ‘forms’ (or your year group if you are in Y7 or Y8). 
  7. At the same time as setting up your account, try a quiz to make sure it works.
  8. Try to complete your daily goal or more every day.  This should take 10-15 minutes but may take a bit longer at first.
  9. Be patient if the Quizzes seem too easy or too hard, the more you use it the more it will get to know you.

National Day of Reflection

On Tuesday 23rd March, Southam College will take part in the ‘National Day of Reflection.’ This day will mark one year since the start of the first lockdown. The day is an opportunity to reflect on the events of this year. 

At 12pm on Tuesday 23rd March, Southam College will take part in a national one-minute silence to reflect on our collective loss, support those who have been bereaved, and hope for a brighter future. 

10D Hospitality and Catering

On Monday the 10D Hospitality and Catering group had a practical lesson all about presentation. 

They were given a hard boiled egg, a piece of bread and access to salad ingredients and mini bottles of Tomato Sauce, Mayonnaise and Brown Sauce to decorate with.  They then had free rein to use their creativity in order to display the items in an attractive ‘restaurant style’ way. 

Well done to 10D on some lovely display work. 

Miss Sinden.

TAKING CARE OF YOU – DAY ONE

For the next 5 days we are going to post a “Taking care of YOU” top tip for our young people and families. We know this is a hard time for everyone and taking care of your mind as well as your body is so important at this time. These tips might not be anything new but sometimes it is helpful to have ideas broken down and shared again. Pass them on and help others too!

Taking Care of YOU – Day one
Talk to someone about your worries. It’s ok to feel helpless, scared or anxious at this time. It’s also ok to feel fine. Everyone reacts differently. Try talking to someone you trust about how you feel. Sharing our worries helps. If you don’t feel you can talk to someone you know, click the link below for a range of fantastic helplines.

Y10 Hospitality and Catering

To start this Half Term Miss Sinden led a Rough Puff Pastry themed cook-along for her Y10 Hospitality and Catering students.

Homemade Rough Puff Pastry is a rewarding product to make, as with a bit of rolling and folding of the dough, great tasting results can be achieved. The students had the choice of making a sweet dish (Fruit Jalousie) or savoury (Meat Pasty). Special mention to Tegan, Sam, Jasmine, Aiden & Billy for joining the cook-along.

Well done all. Miss Sinden.
