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

Mr Campbell

Logan, Maddison, Michaela, James, Tyler, Isaac and Tom (all year 7) are showing off their cake stands that they designed and made during two X Block sessions in the DT workshop this term.  The cakes were baked by other members of year 7 as part of their Chefistry expedition.  Look out for more beautiful work from our talented year 7 students!IMG_8693

Year 7 Presentation of Learning

The Year 7 presentation of learning for their current learning expedition will take place on the evening of Monday 12th December. We will have more details on exact timings in due course.

It is really important that every student attends, and has someone from their family come to the event to celebrate the incredible work that they are doing.

Year 7 Fieldwork

Students in Year 7 will be going out on fieldwork every Wednesday as part of their current expedition, beginning tomorrow (11th May).

All students will be working outdoors for extended periods so must have the following:

  • Waterproofs
  • Warm clothing
  • Hat/gloves
  • Wellington boots/walking boots
  • Water bottle
  • Sun cream

Students will be doing field research as well as manual service learning at Potteric Carr nature reserve so it is important that they have the appropriate kit.

We ask that students do not arrive in jeans, canvas trainers or open toed shoes for fieldwork as they are not appropriate for outdoor work. Students may bring a change of clothes for when they return to school.

Timings of the day will run as normal so there is no need to make a packed lunch. Students will finish the day at the normal time of 3.15.

Thanks for your continued support.
