Students in X24 Skipper and Admiral will be presenting their learning from our expedition Small Change on 5th December at 4.30pm in XP East School. Students have been working towards a number of Learning Targets focused on the GCSE text A Christmas Carol and the historical context of the period when Dickens produced A Christmas Carol. We like to invite you to hear from your son or daughter and see the work they have produced in order to answer the guiding question Why do we still need charity?  

We will also be asking, if possible, for donations to support the work of the Balby Church food and clothing bank.

FOR THE FOOD BANK: food that just requires hot water adding: e.g Instant porridge, Cup Soups, Mug shots, Instant noodles and Pot noodles (Supermarket own brands are ideal) FOR THE CLOTHES BANK: all types but the greatest demand is for jeans, joggers for men and all clothes for children aged 6-18.

 

Thank you in advance the Year 9 Team

A number of students from X24 have been working extremely hard both in lesson and also in the completion of their extended study. They have completed these tasks to a high standard and also made sure that they have been handed in on time.

The students that I would like to give a special mention to are Alfie Lockey (X24 Admiral), Bella Herring (X24 Skipper) and Amber Clark (X24 Skipper) who have all finished the two studies (paper cut and sharpie block design) in class and also their extended study (Artist research).

All three of these students are now well on the way to creating a lovely charcoal study for their developing and exciting art portfolio.

Well done Alfie, Amber and Bella! Keep up the good work!

X24/Year 9 Skipper working those Spanish verbs!

Last week our X24/ Year 9 Skipper students used online language learning software to practise conjugating Spanish verbs in the present tense. Having received feedback on their grammatical accuracy they then applied this knowledge to the completion of GCSE standard photocard tasks on our current media expedition. Needless to say that I was delighted by their focus and high levels of productivity throughout. Well done Skipper!

X23 Bioshock – Update

What a great start to the new half term! X23 Skipper started the morning working hard to complete their ink studies. Stippling has needed some dedication and it is paying off: as you can see below. Deadline for this piece of work is: Monday 10th June (students will be able to take their folder home – if need be).
