C21 Celebration of Learning: 13th December

 

As we approach the end of the term, C21 are busy preparing for the culmination of the current expedition, ‘Raiders and Invaders’. As such, we would like to invite the parents, carers and families of all our Year 10 students to their first Celebration of Learning for this academic year. This will take place at the school on Wednesday 13th December at 17.30. The event will last approximately 1 hour where our students will acts as historians, writers and scientists as they present their work and learning to you. This is especially important as this will be a first practice at being an expert for the Viking festival in York where our students will be representing the school in early 2018.

We look forward to seeing you all on the 13th! Thanks for your continued support!

Year 10 Fieldwork: Yorkshire Museum

 

Year 10 will be undertaking fieldwork this week at Yorkshire Museum in York as part of their Raiders and Invaders expedition. Both classes will visit the museum but on different days.

Skipper: Wednesday

Admiral: Thursday

Students will travel by minibus and will depart at 09.15 and return to school in time for lunch, arriving at 12.30.

This means that there will be no change to the normal school day and students are not required to bring a packed lunch.

We politely ask that students arrive with outdoor clothing and comfortable footwear, writing and note taking equipment and devices to take pictures. If you have any questions or queries, as usual please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Send an email to Mrs Batty or Mr Voltaire.

Many thanks

Extended Study C21 Admiral and Skipper

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.
