Y9 Expert Visit

On Friday, in year 9, we hosted an expert from Doncaster museum talking to us about crime and punishment in the medieval period, linking to our current humanities expedition ‘I fought the law and the law won!’ Year 9 had the opportunity to handle and observe artefacts, alongside dressing-up in medieval clothing!

Here’s just a few pictures…

Guns, Germs and Steel Final Product

During November and December last year our year 9 students completed the expedition Guns, Germs and Steel. For the final product students used their research skills to design and develop a informative infographic that displayed key components to explain the conflict in their chosen country during World War One.

Here are some of the final products…

Y9 Hums Admiral and Skipper Extended Study- due Friday 3rd Feb

Student should re-read the chapters handed to them in class which include the artilleryman (Book 1 Chapter 11 and Book 2 Chapter 7) and must examine how the artilleryman changes. Students must ‘track’ the text (select and highlight key points) and write a brief summative answer of how/why they believe he’s changed, using quotations to support their answer.

Y9 Extended Study- Admiral due Monday 16th/Skipper Friday 13th

For Y9 extended study this week, students must read the 1st two chapters of War of the Worlds Book 2 and answer the accompanying comprehension questions.  Admiral will be tested on their knowledge of these chapters on Monday the 16th and Skipper on Friday the 13th.

 

Year 9 “Bridges” Fieldwork

Skipper are on fieldwork this Friday (6th Jan), and Admiral the following Monday (9th jan)

We will be outside for the most part of the day, so students will need to wrap up warm (layers are key in this cold weather), with raincoats (just in case) and sensible shoes.

A pack up will be needed, students will also need something to record information onto or into, a phone is ideal, but a trusty notebook will suffice.

Best wishes and a Happy New Year
