C24 Y7 MyMaths extended study

This term we are looking at the efficiency of energy transfers as part of our expedition “Where is away?”. An important part of this is being able to work out and interpret efficiency when expressed as a percentage.

All Year 7 students have been set 3 MyMaths exercises as a baseline to test their knowledge of working out percentages of amounts.

If students are stuck they can:

  • Watch the videos linked here: https://corbettmaths.com/2013/02/15/percentages-of-an-amount-calculator/
  • Click on the lesson in MyMaths before trying the online homework.
  • Email me through google classroom.

The deadline is Monday evening at 8pm.

Thanks

All year 7 students will be taking part in a presentation of learning at Tichkill Community Library on Thursday 5th April.

Students will be showing their lift the flap books, organ system games and discussing their knowledge of the Medieval Period from their last learning expedition with an audience of primary age children and their families from around Tickhill.

Students will leave and return in the school day. They will travel by minibus and spend around 1 hour at the library in four different groups over the course of the day. There is no need for students who have a school meal to bring a pack-up lunch as the group that go out over lunchtime will be made of students that normally bring a pack-up anyway.

We will post photographs and videos where we can, subject to members of the audience granting their approval.

A reminder that students need to earn 1000 points every week on times table rockstars

We will check each week at 8pm on a Friday.

 

To earn points quickest, students should play in the garage. This week it is 2s and 3s.

To bring down their average time, students should play in the studio.

To have most fun, students should play in the rock arena against their friends, or rock festival where they play against the world!

All Year 7 students have two parts to their extended study:

  1. Four MyMaths exercises due on Tuesday 23rd Jan at 8pm.
  2. Two worksheet exercises due on Tuesday 23rd Jan at 9.15am

Students need to complete their working out on the worksheets, and then hand them in on Tuesday. The minimum expectation is that they do the “workout” section. If they are struggling or have not met the deadline, they will be given additional help in expedition support on Thursday after school.

There are more details on google classroom. If students need additional copies, there are links to the worksheets. There are also links to two videos that will help too.

C24 POL

The culmination of C24’s first expedition for the last few months will be from 5.30 to 7.00 on Tuesday 19th December.

As such, we would like to invite the parents, carers and families of all our Year 7 students to their first Presentation of Learning.

Students will share an extract from the product, which they have worked really hard on over the last few weeks.

Please have your car registration details to type in at reception on your arrival.

We look forward to seeing you all on the 19th! Thanks for your continued support!

Yesterday C23 launched their first book: Doncaster: What does the community owe to our miners? which looks at their understanding of the geology of Doncaster and why the mines came to be here; with the industrial and social histories that they have discovered; with the artwork that they have been inspired to create and with the stories that have compelled them to share and pass on, so that they might live on forever.

You can purchase this from the school reception for £9.95 or through our school online shop by clicking here.

Class of 24 Year 7 Fieldwork – UPDATED

*** UPDATE: We have brought forward the launch of our product, so this fieldwork has been postponed. We will be going later in the term. More details to follow. ***

 

Students in Year 7 will be doing fieldwork in Denaby Main, looking at the site of the old pit village and pit top. We will be walking around 1km, so students will need to be dressed appropriately and be ready for wintery weather.

7 Skipper will be going on the morning of Wednesday 22nd November.

7 Admiral will be going on the morning of Thursday 23rd November.

On both days students will be leaving and returning to school during normal sessions and so no pack-up lunch is required.

C24 (year 7) Fieldwork Rearranged 4th and 5th October

Unfortunately we have had to rearrange the fieldwork on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th to the week after.

Skipper will now do fieldwork in Wednesday 4th October.

Admiral on Thursday 5th October.

The fieldwork is located at a range of former quarries where students can study exposures of the 3 main types of rock found at Warmsworth Park, Cedar Road in Balby and Barnburgh cliff. Students will carry out fieldwork alongside geological experts at each site, looking at the bedrock and superficial deposits in detail, as well as taking measurements of the dimensions of each site.

Students will be back for 15.15

They will need to be prepared for the weather. At the moment the forecast looks good, however please keep an eye on this as we get closer to the fieldwork.

Long trousers and sleeves are best as we will be walking through some overgrown areas.

Wellies and a raincoat are advisable whatever the weather.

Students will need a pack up lunch, they can take this in their normal school bags. We can provide lunch for students on free school meals.

Student will also need a bottle of water.

Any issues please contact me at rcampbell@xpschool.org

Thanks
