X24 Romeo and Juliet Performance

As the X24 Human expedition Rebellion draws to a close we have been spending time in session writing our answer to the guiding question and reflecting on the past fifteen weeks. A massive highlight of this project was the performance of Romeo and Juliet, where all fifty students showed such courage to perform to such a large audience.

I am so proud of every student in X24 for the incredible hard work that went into the performance and the expedition as a whole. I look forward to seeing the students continue to create beautiful work in the next expedition.

X24 Presentation of Learning Reminder

On Wednesday 8th May, students in X24 will be performing William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet as their final product for the expedition REBELLION. 

The performance will take place at 6pm at XP EAST. Please ensure you arrive in time to be seated before the performance starts.

Students in X24 will be expected to stay at school until the end of their Presentation of Learning. The reason for this is because this will allow time for the students to do a rehearsal before the evening performance. Therefore, please can you ensure that students bring enough food to fuel them for the evening.

If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact school.

We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

 

X24 Fieldwork 2nd and 3rd April

X24 students will be out on fieldwork for two days next week.

On Tuesday 2nd April we will be travelling to Sheffield as part of the immersion for our new STEAM expedition.  The fieldwork will take place during the day so students should arrive at school at the normal time.  Lunch will be provided.

On Wednesday 3rd April we will be on Humanities fieldwork but will need to leave school at 8am and will arrive back at 4.15pm  Students will need to bring a packed lunch and should have coats and sensible shoes for walking outside as there will be a 10 minute walk from the coach stop to our destination.

X24 – Romeo & Juliet Wednesday 27th February 2019

X24 will be attending a performance of Romeo & Juliet at The Grand Theatre, Blackpool on Wednesday 27th February. We will be leaving school at 10am and aim to return to XP by 7pm. Students will need to bring a packed lunch that will be eaten on arrival in Blackpool and also have some further food to snack on during the return journey. We will keep you updated during the day through the school website.

X24 Walking back in time!

Today in STEAM sessions, X24 created a timeline of life on Earth.  With every step taking us back 10 million years – our students planted flags to show when major species evolved.  We did this to try to understand the absolutely huge length of time that our planet has been around, and how long it took for life to evolve.

After walking the entire length of the XP site we had gone back just over 3 billion years.  Another 150 metres would have taken us right back to the formation of the planet – 4.54 billion years ago.

At this scale, the whole of human civilisation would fit into half a centimetre!

Great work by X24, even in the freezing cold.

X24 – XBlock Art

X24 have been working on their linear organ drawings and using variation of line to record the detail. Some beautiful work have been refined and they are now ready to create their chosen organ out of clay.

For extended study they need to research their chosen organ: find four images of that organ, explain the function and share it with myself ‘Hcross’.
