Students in Admiral and Skipper C21 have revision set as extended study this week.
On Friday 20th October students will sit a GCSE style exam paper including two 1 mark questions, a 9 mark question and an 18 mark question. The questions will only be based on the Volga/Rus Vikings which includes:
-The changing nature of Viking (Rus) trade and settlement in Russia from c.750
-The nature of Viking trade and interaction with the Arab world
– Viking relations with Constantinople and the Byzantine Empire
As a result students will need to take their books home this week in order to revise and be fully prepared for Friday.
A reminder about Thursdays fieldwork arrangements. Please see the original post below.
Could I also ask that parents and carers do not send students with anything containing peanuts as we have a student with allergies to peanuts, also if students require an inhaler they must bring one with them on the day.
As part of the expedition Disaster!, students will carry out Fieldwork at the Natural History Museum, London, on Thursday 30th March 2017. Students will be travelling by coach to London and will therefore need to arrive at school no later than 6.15 am ready for a 6.30 am departure. We will arrive back at school later that evening at around 7.00 pm, depending on traffic. All students except those on Free School Meals will need to bring a packed lunch, and may want to bring some money for the Services on the way home where there will be an opportunity to eat, or bring a double packed lunch instead.
We ask that any students who are travel sick take their medication in good time, sit at the front of the bus, and pass their return journey medication to myself or their Crew leader.
If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Students in 8 Admiral and 8 Skipper have been set a piece of extended study to create their own interpretation of the island discussed in Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Students must ensure they use quotations in their work alongside any drawing or design they create. In both groups students should have already decided on their pairs for this task and how they wish to present their interpretation. This work is due on 28th June.
Both Skipper and Admiral have Extended Study to complete over the holiday. Students will need to write up their notes from the fieldwork visit to the Gurdwara. A google doc will need to be shared with both Mrs Sprakes and myself.
Students may wish to use the following headings in their notes:
The scriptures (book)
History of Sikhism
