Students in C21 are working hard in their crew time on GCSE revision notes, planning sessions and learning techniques and styles to prepare them for their GCSE exams.
On Wednesday 27th February, All members of X23 will be sharing their beautiful work from their last expedition; Don’t Mention the War!
This will take place at the Doncaster Art Gallery and Museum from 2pm to 3pm. This covers work from all disciplines.
We hope to see you all there.
X24 will be attending a performance of Romeo & Juliet at The Grand Theatre, Blackpool on Wednesday 27th February. We will be leaving school at 10am and aim to return to XP by 7pm. Students will need to bring a packed lunch that will be eaten on arrival in Blackpool and also have some further food to snack on during the return journey. We will keep you updated during the day through the school website.
I am pleased to invite parents/carers/family to X25’s Presentation Of Learning where all students in X25 will be presenting a segment of their speech- What makes a successful Community?
The Presentation of Learning will start at 5.30pm on Wednesday 27th February and we hope to finish by 7.30pm in the Heart of XP School.
We look forward to seeing you there.
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts we have been focusing on WHY we go on expeditions at XP, and why we expect our students to go on DofE Bronze & Silver expeditions.
X22 discussed this last Friday along with their worries, additional challenges moving from Bronze to Silver and what they are looking forward to.
Here are some of the things we discussed:
X21 working on Theme 1 in preparation for their speaking exam in the last week of April. Students worked as Crew to critique, and shared ideas about how to learn, ready for the exam.
X25 Admiral will be carrying out fieldwork on Wednesday 20th March.
X25 Skipper will be carrying out fieldwork on Thursday 21st March.
On each day students should arrive at school at the usual time.
The fieldwork is located at a range of former quarries where students can study the bedrock and superficial deposits in detail, as well as taking measurements of the dimensions of each site. Students are expected be back in school for the regular time of 3.15pm
Student will need to be prepared for the weather. Long trousers and sleeves are best as we will be walking through some overgrown areas. Wellies and a raincoat are advisable whatever the weather.
Students will need a pack up lunch, they can take this in their normal school bags. We can provide lunch for students on free school meals.
Student will also need a bottle of water and suncream.
This week our X25 rockers with the most face melting solos in Times Table Rockstars have been:

However Jacob in Admiral has earned a magnificent 36,939 coins, helping his crew to top the leaderboard again this week.
Keep on rocking!
