X25 Xblock

In X25 we are looking at facades of buildings and artists who are influenced by them. They have used a range of media to re-create one of the artist compositions.

Today we have gone outside to draw from observation and look at one point perspective, making our observational drawings look realistic. Here they are working hard!

Extended study has been set for X25 to take photographs of their own house (focussing on the facade). They can also take photographs of interesting facades in Doncaster or of a friends/family house. They need to have their photographs ready for x-block session next week.

X25 Admiral will be carrying out fieldwork on Wednesday 20th March.

X25 Skipper will be carrying out fieldwork on Thursday 21st March.

On each day students should arrive at school at the usual time.

Student will need to be prepared for the weather. Long trousers and sleeves are best as we will be walking through some overgrown areas. Wellies and a raincoat are advisable whatever the weather.

X25 Celebration of Learning – REMINDER

A reminder that the X25 (Year 7) celebration of learning is this Wednesday evening, 19th December from 5.30pm until around 7.00pm.

It is important that every student has someone from their family at this event as it helps to provide an authentic audience for their work in what will be a great celebration of their efforts in their very first learning expeditions at XP.

Students are asked to dress smartly as this is a formal occasion. Students can bring a change of clothes or can choose to attend in smart clothes for the whole day.

Student must stay in school between 3.15pm and the start of the celebration of learning. They will be given some time to relax after school and before the last rehearsals, so they can bring a pack up tea if they choose.

We look forward to seeing you this week!

 

Many thanks

Students need to inform Mr Walker as to whether or not they are available to play.

Both teams will train the day before, on Tuesday 6th November, to prepare for the game. It is important that students can attend both.

 

 

With there being no fixtures now until after half term there will be no Rugby or Football training on Monday 15th Oct and Thursday 18th Oct respectively.

Rugby training will resume on the first Tuesday back after half term before a game versus Hall Cross on Wednesday 8th Nov for year 7 and 8 – more details to follow.

Football training will be shelved for boys until after Christmas as the league fixtures are now delayed until it is light enough again to play them after school. Basketball club will begin on Mondays after school in its place.

I will post full after school club info for next half term later this week.
