C24 Fieldwork to the Slavery Museum

On Thursday 29th November, C24 students will be going on fieldwork to The International Slavery Museum in Liverpool.

We will be setting off from XP School at 8am. Therefore, students MUST be at school in time to leave.

Students will need to bring a packed lunch to eat whilst we are at the Museum.

We expect to return to school for 3.30pm.

I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for not providing this information sooner. We have been waiting for the Museum to confirm arrangements which has taken much longer than expected.

Butterflies, butterflies and more butterflies

Well what an amazing week for X24! This week students have worked exceptionally hard in all sessions. From delivering presentations in STEAM, to becoming detectives researching the Ku Klux Klan, nothing has phased them! Here are some of the students who received a praise butterfly to reward their hard work and effort this week.

Congratulations to all of you! Keep up the hard work!

X24 Investigation into the Ku Klux Klan

This week students have been analysing what life was like for African American people after the end of slavery. As part of this the students took part in an interactive session where they worked collaboratively to investigate source material on the Ku Klux Klan.  The students level of maturity and depth of discussion in both sessions was very impressive. Well done X24, keep up the hard work!


X25 X-Block Observation and colour work

Today X25 have been working on the following Learning Targets:

  • I can sketch out accurately from observation
  • I can overlay coloured pencil to create form
  • I can mix/ blend coloured pencil
  • I can leave highlights and record shadow

They are working hard at developing their Art skills: these are transferable when creating a product for an expedition.

Here you can see X3 busy using colour to create form on their observational apple study.
