Our C22 Admiral students spent some of last Friday afternoon’s MFL session playing Battleships in Spanish, as they practised the near future tense. They were building on previous oral work to be able to answer the question : “¿Qué vas a hacer después del instituto?” (“What are you going to do after school?”).
Students in C22 have recently enjoyed a visit from a number of experts in connection with their current expedition ‘War! What is it good for?’ and to help them answer the guiding question ‘How has conflict shaped out world?’. Firstly, students experienced what it was like to be soldiers in WW1 with a visit from Doncaster Museum where they participated in trench cooking and trench building. Students also handled a number of WW1 artefacts and weapons and had the opportunity to have their burning questions answered by a second WW1/2 expert. Finally, students have had the chance to take part in a session delivered by the Doncaster Conversation Club who work with local asylum seekers and refugees to enhance their understanding of how and why people flee war-torn countries. Great work from all in C22!
C21 Franklin Crew gave Doncaster fire fighters treats as an act of kindness as part of their ’51 Ways to be XP’.
Here’s a few pictures…
Year 8 were asked to design some branded clothing for XP East, and describe it in Spanish. Here are some of their designs…
Really well done and packed with information!
As part of immersion students have been building on their knowledge of the Globe Theatre to provide context for their study of Romeo and Juliet. On Monday students were asked to grapple with a tricky model of the theatre itself. Aimee and Paige showed real resilience and produced this beautiful work!
Year 7 have been working closely with Age UK in their current expedition Spread A Little Happiness. They have done service learning by playing games with users of Age UK in Sprotbrough and Armthorpe and found out what they like. Students then made “Kindness boxes” for their person with the things they like in.
