Y9 FIELDWORK 6th MARCH- Admiral and Skipper

Y9 fieldwork for both Admiral and Skipper will be taking place on Monday 6th March, the first day back after the half-term holidays.

We will be leaving school after crew at around 9.30 and we should arrive back at school before the end of the school day.

All students must bring a packed lunch, warm outdoor clothing and comfortable footwear.

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.
