Ennis Hill have once again shown there wonderful revision skills during crew sessions this week and should be fully prepared for there Mock exams starting on Monday.
On top of this we had a check in on crew pledges (which were previously posted) and 100% of crew have stuck to these pledges. Keep up the amazing work Ennis Hill.
During the first week of term Ennis Hill have been brilliant. The week started with a lovely check in. There time both in crew and during sessions around the school has been used wisely and purposefully. It was an intense first week back, with a presentation of learning 2 days after they returned to school, work towards being ready for their Art GCSE after school and revision for the upcoming Mock exams which start on Monday 18th June.
This is the start of what will be one of the hardest years of there lifetime. Keep up the great work Ennis-Hill.
At the end of last term in Crew we spent some time reflecting and unpicking what our HOWLs should look like. Following our return from the two week break each Crew member has set new pledges to ensure they are Getting Smart, Being Kind and Working Hard. We will use these new pledges to frame and focus our final term in Year 10
Having recently completed SLC’s, Ennis Hill have shared their academic pledges with each other. Every week they will help each other to achieve these pledges and make progress ahead of their Summer Mock exams.
Crew Bronte completed their Student Led Conferences a few weeks ago which included students reflecting on their mock examination results and considering academic pledges for the upcoming examinations in June. Check out Alzbeta’s reflections below on how she is currently performing in her History GCSE.
Ally’s pledge to ask for more ‘feedback’ and her determination to ‘test’ herself and ‘revise more regularly’ shows that she is really ‘getting smart’. In the next few weeks in academic crew sessions we are going to look at revision resources and techniques so that we are fully prepared for the challenges ahead!
Crew Bronte. along with other crews in X22, have been working hard this week delivering their speeches on Othello entitled, ‘Who is the most to blame for the death of Desdemona?’ The speeches have been recorded and will be sent to the Eduqas examination board so the students can gain a grade in Spoken Word which will complement their final GCSE grade in English. The speeches have been well prepared, thorough and detailed. Great work X22!!
In crew today we discussed the benefits of using flash cards to aid revision. It was great to see Allie and Olivia already producing revision resources for Science to help them understand key concepts. The whole crew then focussed on an element of revision they were less confident about and produced flash cards on an aspect of that subject.
These guys are on it!
This evening X22 hosted an evening of debates in front of a public audience. As part of their latest STEAM expedition students’ final product was to plan, prepare and participate in a formal debate on contentious subjects ranging from, ‘Is the world making progress?’ to ‘Was the moon landing a hoax?’ The level of debating skills was extremely impressive and the respect shown between opposing views was clearly in evidence. Pressure was increased by the presence of an audience lending real authenticity and accountability to the evening
High quality work X22.
Today in crew, Bronte focussed on practising their speaking in Spanish in preparation for their upcoming mock examination. Special shoutouts for Ben and Paige who answered the question, ‘Where do you go on your holiday?’ in perfect Spanish with superb accents. This is what the rest of crew need to aspire to!
In addition, Katie and Ally worked on a draft revision timetable using a model from the website as inspiration, they then shared this work with the rest of crew. We agreed as a crew we would share a revision timetable over the next few days so that we can start revision next week for the mock examinations that start the week beginning 10 December.
Excellent work, Bronte!!
