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).

X23 Bioshock Fieldwork

For the next five weeks, both Skipper and Admiral will be going on Fieldwork. This will not effect start or finish times for the day, neither will students require a packed lunch. Students need to be aware of the dates so that they can come to school prepared for being in the outdoors (i.e. clothed appropriate for the weather, sensible shoes and have a bottle for water etc…)

The dates are as follows:

Skipper

Monday 29th April

Tuesday 7th May

Monday 13th May

Tuesday 4th June

Monday 10th June

Admiral

Tuesday 30th April

Wednesday 8th May

Tuesday 14th May

Monday 3rd June

Tuesday 11th June

Please do not hesitate to contact myself or Mr Voltaire if you require any further information.

With there being no fixtures now until after half term there will be no Rugby or Football training on Monday 15th Oct and Thursday 18th Oct respectively.

Rugby training will resume on the first Tuesday back after half term before a game versus Hall Cross on Wednesday 8th Nov for year 7 and 8 – more details to follow.

Football training will be shelved for boys until after Christmas as the league fixtures are now delayed until it is light enough again to play them after school. Basketball club will begin on Mondays after school in its place.

I will post full after school club info for next half term later this week.
