X22 Humanities Extended Study Due Thursday

Students have made an excellent start to our new expedition looking at the rise of Hitler and the Nazi Party in Germany. This week we have examined the problems facing Germany after WW1, specifically the Treaty of Versailles, hyperinflation and the Great Depression. See below for their beautiful books and notes!

Students have been given an image of a propaganda poster from 1932 to annotate with their thoughts on the posters’ message and purpose. This is due next Thursday (7th February) where we will discuss students findings and prepare for an assessment.

X22 Fieldwork – Leeds Art Gallery

Some beautiful work produced from our students last week: we went to Leeds Art Gallery to view a range of artwork (something for everyone). What was impressive was seeing our students carefully observe the Artwork and doing some lovely studies from them. Much better seeing real works of Art rather than viewing it on a computer or phone.

Celebration of Learning will be next week: to view work from their first expedition. Their skills are developing and I can already see a difference in craftsmanship and quality!

The Celebration of Learning for X22 students will be on the 6th and 7th February. Students will be presenting their art work and discussing how they have chosen to represent last term’s guiding question: Who were the Vikings? The evening will begin at 5.30pm with a short introduction by our students followed by an opportunity for parents to view all students’ artwork and speak to students about the process and thinking behind their work.

Skipper students will present their work on Wednesday 6th February and Admiral students on Thursday 7th February.

We look forward to seeing you.

 

X22 beautiful work in history

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!

X22 ART ‘Who were the Vikings?’

X22 Skipper and Admiral are looking at images of Viking artefacts and questioning ‘who were the vikings?’ They are sketching from these images and overlaying coloured crayon to make their drawings look realistic.

 

 

Here are some of our students from Admiral working hard…looking closely and recording what they see!

 

 

C21 Extended Study

Students have been set a note taking task on google classroom that is to be completed by Friday. They will need to read the following information from http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/history/mwh/ir1/chamberlainandappeasementrev1.shtml  and produce their own notes in order to build their contextual understanding around the start of WW2.
