As mock exams begin for C21 on Tuesday 9th January Choice GCSE will be moved to Monday 8th January (the first day back) so that students don’t miss out on this time. Please make sure you have everything you need for Choice on Monday.
Year 10 will be undertaking fieldwork this week at Yorkshire Museum in York as part of their Raiders and Invaders expedition. Both classes will visit the museum but on different days.
Students will travel by minibus and will depart at 09.15 and return to school in time for lunch, arriving at 12.30.
This means that there will be no change to the normal school day and students are not required to bring a packed lunch.
We politely ask that students arrive with outdoor clothing and comfortable footwear, writing and note taking equipment and devices to take pictures. If you have any questions or queries, as usual please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Send an email to Mrs Batty or Mr Voltaire.
For Y9 extended study this week, students must read the 1st two chapters of War of the Worlds Book 2 and answer the accompanying comprehension questions. Admiral will be tested on their knowledge of these chapters on Monday the 16th and Skipper on Friday the 13th.
Hello and happy new year to you all!
Just a reminder that Y9 Admiral will be out on fieldwork tomorrow, 3rd Jan and Y9 Skipper on Wednesday 4th Jan.
Please remember to bring a packed lunch, make sure you are wearing warm clothing (big coats, hats, gloves and scarves necessary) and wear comfortable footwear that you don’t mind getting dirty/muddy.
We will be leaving school at 8.30 and will arrive back at approximately 3.30, traffic permitting.
Students have been set 3 study tasks to complete over the half-term holidays.
Reading book 1 of ‘War of the Worlds’ with the texts that all students have been given. Students will also need to respond to the comments made on their historical essays and complete their final draft, alongside typing up their solider empathy responses from their books.
We will be hosting an Art Gallery Celebration of Learning to show the culmination of beautiful work that year 9’s have produced in the Guns, Germs and Steel expedition.
Please save the date for Thursday 15th December at 5:30pm til 6:30pm.
We look forward to seeing you there.
