X22/21 Beautiful Work: Othello

Students have worked incredibly hard on a timed extract assessment on Shakespeare’s Othello. They have demonstrated real resilience in grappling with difficult language and are now beginning to develop some really insightful and original points. Very impressive!


Beautiful Work: X21 Extra English



Some great work from X21 students today in an English session after the school day. Students were analysing an extract and considering when and how tension was built by the writer by using a living graph. Their written analysis was great!

Productivity of X25 Skipper in Spanish this afternoon

X25 Skipper students have responded very positively to their Spanish sessions. This afternoon they worked hard to consolidate their knowledge of classroom stationery, and then after completing their Tarsia word wheel puzzles they chose from seven assessment tasks to check their learning. Muy bien a todos!

C21 Silver Expedition Project completion

All the silver expedition groups need to complete their expedition projects by the 12th November at the latest. This will need to be done in their own time as C21 no longer have Friday DofE sessions.

Groups will then present their final product at the Silver Award presentation evening on Monday 19th November.

Groups can email or come and see me for advice at anytime.

Invites for the presentation evening will be sent out this week.
