X22 have an Art deadline for the combined Art and History expedition ‘Who were the Vikings?’
The deadline is on Friday 21st December: study sheets and final product needs to be handed in on this day.
You should have the following:
– 8 images that will help them with the guiding question ‘who were the vikings’, stuck in to your sketch book and annotated.
– 1 tonal study, annotated
-1 coloured pencil study, annotated
-1 charcoal study, annotated
-1 paint study, annotated
-2 x linear ideas
-Narrative for product
I am available on a Wednesday for extended study if students would like to work in PO8, also they can do it on other days but I am around to help on a Wednesday. Art folders can also be taken home to complete work, this should allow them to meet the deadline.
Thank you, Mrs Cross

A massive well done to all students in C22! All C22 students shone tonight across all three rooms. We are really proud of the preparation, effort and intelligence that occurred in all debates. What we asked of all students was not easy, and all students rose to the challenge.
Above all, we must highlight the incredible respect and compassion students showed each other.

Dear C22 Parents,
I’m delighted to announce that the C22 POL for the STEAM expedition ‘Conspiracy’ will be on Wednesday the 5th December, for Skipper and Admiral, from 5pm to 6pm.
Students will take part in a debate around their chosen area. Parents may observe and critique quality of explanations however we would love as many parents to get involved in the debate as possible.
Please ask your son/daughter what their debate is on and if you would like to join the debate, prepare an opening statement. It may also be an idea to have some key points for or against and evidence to support it.
The debate will run like this:
Opening statements (1-2 mins each)
Flowing debate using popcorn protocol (15 mins)
Closing statements (1 min each)
I have attached 2 short videos as models. (Please ignore the teacher bit and focus on what the students are doing).
We’d really appreciate your involvement and support,
Mr Campbell and Mr Shakesby
Students have worked hard to grapple with a difficult 18 mark historical essay question from last years GCSE history paper. Reece’s work shows excellent progress in both his structure and application of historical skills. Well done!!
Admiral are working hard on their Spanish subjunctive tense! These pictures show they are really grappling! Well done Admiral!!
As part of their GCSE studies students from X22 visited Cast Theatre to watch a captivating and exhilarating performance of Shakespeare’s Othello. As always our students were a credit to the school. Well done, X22!
Our fantastic Year 10 students have begun looking at the Vikings as part of the history GCSE period study. The guiding question for this expedition is ‘Who were the Vikings?’, and it has been lovely to see such beautiful work being produced by students already!
Today students were reading texts about different accommodation on holiday and matching it to the correct images, with vocabulary they had just learnt. Well done X22!
On Wednesday 12th September C22 Admiral students will be visiting the Jorvik Viking Centre, York. The following day, Thursday 13th September, C22 Skipper students will attend the same visit.
The visit will take place wholly in school hours and students will return before the end of the day.
Students will need to ensure they are wearing warm clothing – as there is a short walk across York to the museum – as well as a packed lunch. Students who are on Free School Meals will have a lunch provided by school.
The visit will give students the opportunity to see Viking artefacts up close and in person as well as speaking to experts on this period of history.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or queries.
