Students will receive their perimeter tests back with and an email with a breakdown of their grades.

They need to do 3 things before their student-led conference:

1. Write out their targets using the symbol codes. There is a google doc linked on google classroom with all of the target codes.

2. Check which corrections they need to do. I have put a pencil symbol on the front page of their test.

3. Correct the questions. They MUST show your working out for these corrections. There is a google doc on google classroom with the answers. I am less concerned about students being able to see the answers, and more concerned about them having a method to get the correct answer.

The learning target for the test was: I can calculate the perimeter of compound shapes. Students were awarded the following grades based on what they could do:

Beginning – Can calculate the perimeter of simple/regular shapes
Developing – Can calculate missing lengths in shapes
Secure – Can calculate the perimeter of compound shapes
Excellence – Can solve GCSE problems associated with perimeter and compound shapes

 

During their student-led conference, your son or daughter will share this piece of work with you. They will also explain their grade for this work and how it compares to their minimum expected grade. They will also show you what additional work they have done since, as part of this extended study, to improve/extend their knowledge.

 

Target Codes

Answers to the test

Students need to complete 1000 points worth of practice in Times Tables Rockstars

This is a weekly expectation now. This week the focus in the garage are the 2, 3 and 4 times tables.

They score most points by playing in the garage, but can play against each other in the rock arena.

C24 D&T design task for Mrs Rigby

3D slot animal design

Hi all
Your task is to search for a 3D slotted animal which you would like to have a go at making your own version of and upload a copy to google classroom. Just a reminder that as we don’t have a laser cutter these will be hand crafted so think carefully about your design. Start simple, you can always make another which is more complicated later. You will be able to use either an A4 piece of corrugated cardboard or A4 sheet of wood so think about how you will fit your design on this size material. The first lesson back you will be able to make a draft of your design using thick paper/card, self and peer critique. Some examples of simple designs are below to help you get started.
Don’t forget to upload your design!
Due in date Monday 6th November

Y7 STEM extended study

All Y7 students have an I AM LEARNING quiz set. There are lots of questions on there which will help them prepare for their essay assessment. This is due on Wednesday evening at 8pm.

 

Year 7 students are also starting their essay on natural selection in sessions today and tomorrow. Their first draft must be complete by Monday of next week (17th July).

 

EDIT: Skipper missed two sessions on this whilst Mr Said was in meetings during the inspection, so they have an extension until Friday of next week.

All our Y7s have been given the task of researching a Spanish-speaking country and then recording and presenting at least five key facts about their chosen country. These could include:

  • population size
  • unit of currency
  • famous Spanish-speakers born there (e.g Shakira is Cuban)
  • national flag
  • famous national dishes (e.g. Mexico = nachos, enchiladas, fajitas)

 

Results of research to be brought on the prompt cards (provided) to the next lesson (Admiral = 12/07/17 and Skipper = 13/07/16)
