There will be an assessment on the first three acts of the play Othello on Monday 5 November for X21 students. I’ve posted guidance and some really useful resources on google classroom to help you prepare. Essentially, you need to read and annotate Act Three and then revise Acts One and Two ready to write about the play on Monday. Any problems or concerns don’t hesitate to contact me!
X21 Have been working hard on their VCERT exams last week but they also have three units of work from year 10 that must be completed. All students have something to work on still and the deadline for this is Wednesday 17th October. Details and guidance are on the Smart portfolio.
If students still have unfinished work after the deadline, they will be invited to attend a catch up session during the holiday.
The nature of this qualification means that if any section of the portfolio is not passed then the whole VCERT cannot be passed. Please ask students to show you the Creative Studies Tracker and encourage them to comment on it if they’ve recently completed work which hasn’t yet been graded.
Science extra sessions will start for all students next week. They are either Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. This round of sessions will focus on content which students have not covered in their expeditions so it is vital all students attend so that they are prepared for their mock exams in January.
