Crew Webb have been listening to Miss Hannam’s crew read this week as part of their voluntary Duke of Edinburgh service. The students will also undertake a skill section, a physical section and finally an expedition in order to gain their bronze award.
On Monday, crew Macmillan focused on WHY we DofE after our regular weekend check in.
We talked about how being on DofE relates to working together in a classroom, and identified why we partake in outdoor expeditions that Mrs ap Harri leads so fantastically.
See what crew thought…
Some ideas included ‘to help the community, to get the award, and to show commitment’.
Fab work this week Crew Macmillan, keep working hard!
Students from X24 will be visiting Eyam over the next two days. This visit will take place entirely within the school day (traffic dependent), therefore students require a packed lunch.
Admiral: Wednesday 4th September
Skipper: Thursday 5th September
Students will be spending some of their time walking and so will need to bring appropriate clothing and footwear, the current weather forecast suggests that we will have rain on Wednesday.
We would just like to remind you that X24 Presentation of Learning for their current expedition ‘Life through a Lens’ will take place at XP School on Wednesday 10th July at 5pm.
This will be the final Presentation of Learning for Year 8, so it would be brilliant to see you there in support of our students.
Reflective learners preparing to present their final SLC of Y8.
I wanted to share some great SLC prep from Crew King. I can’t wait to see the beautiful work produced and honest courageous reflections.
This week in Humanities sessions X24 students have been exploring the context of their anchor text Of Mice and Men. As the book is set in 1930’s America we have been studying what life was like at this time and recording our new understanding using a BBK note catcher. All students worked hard to expand their knowledge during these sessions but Milla and Aaisha’s work stood out in terms of it’s Craftsmanship and Quality. Beautiful work girls!
With a few hints, clues and a quick game of hangman, X24 students successfully identified all the components of the new expedition.
Over the next six weeks we will be studying the expedition entitled Life through a Lens and attempting to answer the question “How can the Arts help to uncover the past?”
