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’.

 

   

X24 Praise Butterflies

It’s fantastic to see our X24 students working so hard during our first week back.  Praise butterflies this week were awarded to Isaac, Vinnie, Aaisha, Chris, Jaggy, Courtney, Kyra, Bella, Charlotte, Milla, Charlie and Harpreet.  Butterflies were awarded by staff and by students for consistent hard work, being kind, showing compassion and in one case – for being epic!

Well done everyone!

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.
