Students in X25 Admiral have been set a few tasks for the break.

  1. Watch a BBC Documentary from David Attenborough. There are questions to answer. (Around 1 hour)
  2. Complete three quizzes in Kerboodle.(Around 30 mins)
  3. Make sure that they are up to date and have responded to feedback in their Mastery eBooklet. (For most students this should be responding to feedback, around 15 mins)

In addition, as an optional task, if students are at a loose end, there are some flashcards in quizlet and Tassomai that students can use to quiz themselves.

 

All details are on Google Classroom. If your son or daughter needs any help, please ask them to contact me through Google Classroom.

Thanks for your continued support,

Mr Said.

X24 Immersion continues…

In todays Humanities sessions X24 students were given an extract of their expedition Anchor Text to perform.  As the expedition is yet to be revealed the students had no prior knowledge or understanding of the storyline or characters within the novel. This meant that the students had to grapple with the text and perform their own interpretation of what they had read.

Following such an impressive performance of Romeo and Juliet at the last Presentation of Learning, expectations were high. X24 certainly lived up to such expectations by bringing the extract to life in such a believable way. The medium of drama allowed the class to analyse the two main characters and begin to form an understanding of them before we explore the text in further detail. All students were engaged in these sessions however a few stand out students were Vinnie, Archie, Sam and Joe for their sheer enthusiasm and use of characterisation skills. Excellent work boys, keep it up!

In the afternoon the students looked at iconic photographs taken across different time periods and analysed their importance. Again another session where students worked incredibly hard, especially Skipper!

So that’s the three days of Immersion. It is now time for the students to make connections  between the tasks we have done and make considered predictions about our new expedition.

I wonder which student will be successful in guessing our guiding question as we reveal all tomorrow …

 

X24 Science Test

Hi,

X24 (year 8) will sit a science assessment in the last week of term.

It will be based on:

Cells and Specialised cells

Blood and the heart

Students can use Quizlet Flashcards – https://quizlet.com/_5qg2x5 to revise. Or use the KS3 science website which is growing everyday: https://sites.google.com/xpschool.org/ks3-science/biology/organisms?authuser=0

Good luck X24
